I live in Auckland (or Christchurch) and want to pick up my mail. Is this possible?

Even though Private Box has addresses you can use all over New Zealand all mail ends up in Wellington for processing. This means we only offer pickup from our Wellington facility. 

Receiving letters outside Wellington

We can forward or scan letters to you any where in the world. 

Receiving parcels outside Wellington

Of course we can forward parcels received by Private Box to you any where in the world. 

If you were using us to handle parcels only and are based outside Wellington we might not be the best solution for you. The cost to get the parcel from Wellington to you in Auckland / Christchurch could make the service cost too high. 

If you are just after a safe delivery address for parcels I would recommend checking out the following options: 

Parcel collect: get items that are couriered delivered to a Z station, countdown or NZ Post ship. More info here - https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/receiving-mail-parcels/receiving-your-parcels/parcel-collect

Parcel pod: get parcels delivered to a central locker for collection within 48 hours - more info https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/receiving-mail/parcelpod

Counter delivery - can be used for a temporary address (normally less than 3 months) at an NZ Post Shop. It is a really good idea to speak with the post shop first as many have different rules about Counter Delivery. More info here - https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/receiving-mail/counter-delivery

Poste Restante - an inexpensive way to have a temporary address somewhere. More info https://www.nzpost.co.nz/personal/receiving-mail/poste-restante
