Unfortunately, Royal Mail still does not provide a comprehensive list of all it’s franked mail post box locations around the UK. However, there are a few tricks to finding the nearest place you can send franked mail even without an official list.
Use Your Nearest Postbox
While you can’t place regular stamped mail in ‘Franked Mail Only’ post boxes, you can post franked mail using regular post boxes provided you meet the following criteria:
- 30 items or less.
- Use the proper franking outer envelope supplied by your franking manufacturer or independent provider.
- Post items no more than once per day.
Use the Post Office®
The Post Office® has over 11,500 branches in and around the UK, so chances are there’s one near you. At each location you can post franked mail. Find your nearest branch using the map below or their branch finder tool.
Use Royal Mail Collection
Have Royal Mail come and collect it from you. Just be aware that Business Collections can be quite expensive.
If you spend more than £15,000 annually with Royal Mail you can arrange free weekday collection. Also see: 2017/18 Royal Mail Franked Mail Stamp Costs & Postage Charges.
However, if you spend less than that amount costs range from £246 for Saturday collection (Allocated by Royal Mail) and £1,792 for a timed weekday collection chosen by you per year.
One-off collections can also be arranged but prices vary based on availability.
You can book online or call 08457 950 950 (5p per minute) to arrange pick-up.
