How much is it?
It is £40.00 to hire a Royal Mail post box for 5 days and on special offer the Victorian is £20.00. This is required ASAP to secure your chosen date.
We also ask for a £40.00 cash security deposit upon collection or delivery. This is to ensure we receive the post box back in supplied condition, with key and on time.
How do I hire a Post Box?
Please contact me first for availability. You will be asked to complete a short booking form and your date is only confirmed once money is received for the hire date.
You can pay by Paypal or BACS.
Is it lockable?
Yes, we supply one key. (We do suggest that you position your post box away from a main entrance) Despite the box being lockable and actually quite heavy we would also ask your venue to remain vigilant.

Royal Mail: We have white with silver lettering (multiple) and just one of a gorgeous Cornish Cream and gold lettering.
Victorian Pillar: We have deep white with simple gold letters on the word 'POST'

How do we get a template/plaque?
Have a look on the customer’s template photo album of the Facebook page. If you see something you would like to replicate please copy us the website URL or tell me the names of the wedding couple. Each design probably has subtle changes to wording or format of time etc. We can work together to your requirements including matching wedding stationery font. Some customers choose to have a royal mail type design others may simply just want an elegant poem for example.
This is inserted for you.
This template is yours to keep as a memento of your day.

Unfortunately our standard hire period is 5 days (you may wish to have the hire shorter however) and there may be some flexibility on dates if needed as we know some of you come from far and wide to use us.
Can you post?
Unfortunately due to weight and cost of our boxes we do not post.
