Nearby Mailbox

A Nearby Mailbox gives you the chance to have mail delivered where you want it at destination. For example, the service offers households the chance to have mail delivered to the door mail slot, for example. Also housing companies or its residents can agree separately on mail delivery. Similarly, it is possible to agree on moving the mailbox to the boundary of the summer home plot or beside the cottage road, for example.
