Subscriber box and its advantages
Despite the development of high technology, peoplecontinue to use ordinary mail: a parcel with books or some other goods can not be sent over the Internet, important documents must also be sent in hard copy, and ordinary letters and greeting cards are still far from outlived. All this is collected in a mail box, which can be uncomfortable and very unreliable. There is an alternative to it - the user box. What is it like, what is it for and how to use it?
What is a PO Box and how does it differ from the usual
The user box is a special lockablea box that is intended for incoming correspondence. Unlike a regular mailbox, it is located not in the actual or legal place of residence of the addressee, but in the post office. Therefore, on letters, postcards and parcels sent to such a mail box, only the index, city and mailbox number are indicated, so that information about the addressee can remain a secret.
In the post office, the subscriber box looks likealmost the same as usual: it's a metal box with cells, each of which has its own number. The cell, like the mailbox in the entrance, is locked, to which only one key fits.
To begin with, you need to choose a post office,which is located in the most convenient place and works at the right time. First, the future subscriber writes the application, then fills the contract with his individual number, which will later become the number of his box, and the post office will register the user box. Russian Post provides this service for a fee, unlike, for example, mail in Switzerland or Germany. Therefore, after completing all the necessary documents, you need to pay a certain amount. And in a few days to receive, finally, a certified contract and a key to the box.
But it's not so simple. This service is quite popular. And to find a free box in the right post office is not always possible. In such cases, it is possible to rent a user box: the post office of Russia allows such an opportunity. The lucky owner of his own box needs to inform the interested party about his number, draw up and conclude a lease agreement and receive payment. Tenants can even be several, and then the owner of the box assigns each of them additional numbers and sorts all incoming correspondence according to them.</ p>>
