Renew your post box
17 January 2013
The SA Post Office reminds customers to renew their post boxes and private bags before 31 January 2013. If payment is not made, Post Boxes will be locked and customers will have to pay a late renewal penalty of R20.
The cost of renewal is R320 per year which ensures complete security and privacy. If a new post box is being rented, then a pro-rata of the annual rental fee and a refundable key deposit of R30 is payable. "Post boxes offer customers peace of mind as mail is kept safe until ready for collection. Patrons can collect their post at their own convenience and boxes can be rented all around South Africa," said the Post Office.
Post boxes are particularly useful to people who receive sensitive or private items in the mail, such as medication. Payment can be made at local post offices as well as the Virtual Post Office www.virtualpostoffice.co.za. Customers who are experiencing any problems with their post boxes can contact the customer care call centre on 0860 111 502.
