THE Post Office would like to remind its customers in KwaZulu-Natal that they can now renew their post boxes and private bags at any post office or online at www.virtualpostoffice.co.za — the cost of renewal is R535 per year. Pensioners can rent a postbox for a full year at a special discounted rate of R340. This amount ensures complete security and privacy for your mail. Payment is due by December 31, after which the Post Office will start locking postboxes to remind customers that they should immediately renew their postboxes. After this date, an extra amount for late payment will be levied. The Post Office says post boxes are readily available and safe. A postbox can be paid for at any post office outlet countrywide; there is no need to pay at the outlet where you have your postbox.Post boxes offer excellent security for mail items and are particularly useful to companies and individuals who receive important or sensitive items in the mail. — Supplied.
