    Default Post Office box rental

    Hi all,

    has anyone an idea how much an annual post box rental is from the Post office? I would like to start one so we can start our address changes and get our UK mail redirect changed. I cannot find the actual cost on the website.

    thanks

    Sadly obtaining a post box without being resident in NZ is no longer possible. This is the response I had this morning. Thank you for your inquiry.

    Due to new anti-money laundering legislation which came into effect in New Zealand on 30 June 2013 we can no longer open PO Box's for customers unless they are currently residing in New Zealand.

    PO Boxes now need to be paid for at time of opening and we have to physically sight ID, and verify your New Zealand address at a Post Shop.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thank you for contacting New Zealand Post Online Customer Service Centre.

    I don't know if the same legislation would cover them, too, but there are other bodies in NZ offering mail collection, for instance these. https://www.privatebox.co.nz/aboutus.php http://www.backpackerboard.co.nz/BBShop/

    Thanks JandM. My other half pointed out that the following would actually act as an interim solution. http://www.nzpost.co.nz/home/receivi...poste-restante

    Oh, good - as long as there's a way round.

    That looks like what we need...if we can't arrange to PO Box from here.
    Miss_Austion or others did you actually use this service?
    Any feedback to share?
    Many thanks!
