How to organise business mail collection

Make sure your mail reaches your customers as quickly as possible with a business mail collection service.

When sending lots of post every day, you don’t want to be visiting the post office multiple times a day – it’s a waste of time! Instead, set up a service to come and collect it from your office. Business mail collection services aim to save you time and money.

What is business mail collection?

Business mail collection is a service run by Royal Mail in which they collect mail from your office to send out to recipients. Instead of running to the post office every time you need to send mail, the business mail collection service comes to you. All you need to do is make sure everything is addressed correctly, has the right postage paid, and is ready and waiting for collection.

If you’re sending a lot of post from your office, Royal Mail will collect your letters and parcels from you. Collections are flexible and cost-effective and can be set up for any day or time that works best for you. Even Saturdays if that works for you.
