History of the Posthouse
The Posthouse started with 2 British couples, Vic & Jayne, Shelley & Mick
They decided to open the posthouse after a few meetings and discussions on what would be a viable business that offered a helpful service to the community, on 1st May 2008, THE POSTHOUSE was born!
The posthouse was finally put up for sale when the two couples afore mentioned decided to go their separate ways and was bought by ourselves and relocated just up the road to its current location.
Factors they started the business with are still important to this very day in the running of the posthouse to offer a quality helpful service to our clients:-
•· Price - offering a cheaper alternative to other secure mail companies at just €65.00 per year
•· A4 size mailboxes to prevent folded mail
•· Secure parcel storage if too large for box
•· You've got mail email or phone notifications to prevent wasted trip to check your postbox
•· Convenient location with parking and local amenities close by
•· Mail forward to any other international address ( handy if your away for a month or two )
•· Outbound and inbound mail service
•· Recorded delivery signed for on your behalf
•· Internet station
•· Advertising of local business and services
•· Charity drop of point
•· Fax copy print service
•· Passport renewal service
•· Greetings cards - wide range available most cards only €1.50
The Posthouse has provided all of our usual postal related services plus those offered by Offex Easimail, Spain's largest English-Speaking Courier and Postal Service, making us the only provider of the same in western Andalucia.
We provide the following services to and from Spain via the Royal Mail:
UK 1st and 2nd class Post, UK and International Recorded Delivery, Worldwide Airmail, Special Delivery, Airsure, and Standard Parcels. All letters and parcels sent via courier and then flown from Malaga on British Airways Scheduled Flights and delivered directly into the Royal Mail Sorting Office by Offex staff based at London Gatwick Airport.
At The Posthouse, there are great savings to be made when sending mail. For example, letters weighing up to 100g can be sent to the UK for as little as 1,10 euro (1st Class letter, April 2010), making it cheaper than Correos, and without the inconvenience of having to queue in the Central Post Office. There is now no need to purchase stamps, no need to search for a mailbox, and The Posthouse is easily accessible with ample free parking.
We also have services for mail from the UK to Spain offering a fast and secure delivery service for Letters and Parcels. This allows for the ordering of goods online from British websites that only deliver to UK addresses. When registering for this service at The Posthouse, a UK address is provided. Mail from this address is then flown to Spain and sent by courier to The Posthouse for collection. Current rates can be obtained on request.
UK Passport Renewal service. Application forms, advice on documentation required, advice on the new Biometric Standard required for passport photographs, and payment details are all be provided prior to despatch via courier to the British Consulate in Madrid, thus saving time and money by ensuring that all details are correct beforehand. The Posthouse is the only company offering this service throughout the Cadiz region (see below for step-by-step guide).
Other services include ‘Express Parcels', a trackable parcel service for both delivery and collection of parcels to and from the UK, ‘International Air Courier', a worldwide Courier Service, and a very useful ‘Door-to-door' luggage service, that offers the collection of luggage from any address in the UK and delivery direct to The Posthouse, and vice versa.
We are also agents for Betterware UK products, offering free delivery on all orders, and also AVON with a range of stock to buy off the shelf! We now also offer ink cartridges to order and sell printer paper and a selection of Greetings Cards and postcards.
Please note that you DO NOT have to be a Posthouse boxholder to use our outbound mail or inbound UK mail services.
There is no waiting list for postbox rental (ie. a secure address for your mail) and even if you do not require an address for all of your mailing needs, we offer short-term box rental.
We also welcome advertising (for a small fee!) for local business.
Again, these are just a few of the ideas that have arisen from experiences since living in Chiclana, so we hope we are able to put things right, or at least, improve the current service. If you feel the same, pop in and see us, and please let us know your experiences too (just in case we've missed something out).
Our opening hours are:
Monday to Friday - 1000-1600hrs (office attended)
Saturdays 10:00 - 16:00 post box collection only office not manned
