2018-12-05 06:02

THE SA Post Office wants to advise customers who rent postboxes that they should renew their annual rental before December 31.

“Post boxes are readily available and safe and they give customers access to their mail at their convenience,” said Sbu Xaba, General Manager: Operations at the SA Post Office.

He also pointed out that customers do not have to pay at the branch where they rent their postbox.

Postboxes and private bags can be renewed at any post office branch nationally by debit card or cash. They can also be renewed online at

A year’s rent for a postbox is R450. Pensioners can rent a postbox at a discount price of R300.

The Post Office reminds customers to pay their rental through a notification left in their postboxes. If your cellphone number is on the Post Office’s database, they will also SMS you a reminder. Customers with inquiries or feedback regarding postboxes are welcome to contact Post Office’s call centre at 0860 086 860 or e-mail
