Storing mail

In some situations it may be useful to store mail (and / or parcels) for a short or longer period of time and to have it sent on demand. For example when you are moving, or when you are traveling for a longer period of time and / or are not staying at a fixed location.

How does it work?

As soon as we receive mail or a parcel for you, you will receive a message from us and we will keep your mail as long as you want. As soon as you want to receive the mail / parcels, indicate this and we will forward it to the address specified by you. We can (if possible) consolidate the packages so that the shipping costs are limited. Simple and flexible!

  • Mail will be stored as long as you wish

  • Costs for storing mail are € 0,05 per day per item (first 14 days are FREE)

  • The costs for storing packages are € 0,10 per day per parcel (first 14 days are FREE)

  • Especially for people who travel a lot

What are the costs?

  • The fixed costs for a Postbox are € 5,00 per month.
  • The costs for storing mail are only € 0,05 and for packages € 0,10 per parcel per day. No storage costs will be charged for the first 14 days. When you receive forwarded mail, the normal rates for forwarding mail apply.

The advantages

  • If there is no mail for you, nothing will be stored and no costs will be charged.
  • To prevent unnecessary storage costs, we will send you a weekly reminder that we store mail for you.
  • Important to know … the retention rate is only used if you use forwarding option – forwarding on demand. Example: if you have set your Postbox for forwarding 1 x per 2 weeks, then no costs will be charged for storing mail.

If desired, we filter out advertising for you (free of charge). It is also possible that PriPost accepts registered mail and / or parcels for you. Click here for a complete overview of all rates.

Questions and answers regarding forwarding mail on demand

What is the maximum time limit to store mail?2019-07-13T12:16:25+01:00

There is no maximum time limit. We keep the mail as short or as long as you want. The moment we receive mail for you, we will send a message. We also send a reminder every week to prevent you from forgetting the mail and thereby incurring unnecessary costs. As soon as you want to receive the mail, you can indicate this via the inbox in the customer portal. We will then send the mail to the postal address on the date indicated by you.

Are costs charged for storing mail?2020-01-12T12:46:07+01:00

If you want us to keep the mail for you for longer than 14 days, a few cents will be charged per item. This is done in large vaults so that we are sure that your mail has been stored securely.

My setting is forwarding once a month – are there any storage costs charged?2019-07-13T12:17:45+01:00

Storage costs are only charged if you have ‘forward on demand’ as your primary setting. So no, if you have forwarding with a certain frequency, no storage costs will be charged.

Can I change my ‘forwarding on request’ setting to scanning?2019-07-10T15:45:00+01:00

Yes, that is possible. It is true that the mail that has already been entered can only be forwarded. If you change the setting from forwarding to scanning, this will start the next day and only applies to new mail. More information about different scanning options you can find here.

Can I have my stored mail destroyed or scanned?2019-07-10T16:05:29+01:00

Unfortunately this is not possible. Mail entered with a specific setting cannot be changed during the process. So we can only process this mail by forwarding it. You can specify a date via the inbox in the customer portal.
