Franked mail

can you put franked letters in a regular post box, or does it need to be bagged and collected?

Hi

you can put it in the normal mail box, all a frank is, is a pre paid postage facility that the sender uses.

When I got my franking machine I was told that it had to go in a "Special" Franked Mail post box... you can put it in a normal post box but only if it is bagged in one of the special brown envelopes?

I'm no expert, but this is what I was told!

On a similar note, I need to get hold of the green and red bags - anyone know how you go about that? I havent really got 2 spare hours to queue in the post office to ask them ;-)!

I've also always understood that you can only put franked mail in the special post boxes but looking at this quote from Royal mail website perhaps you can use ordinary boxes - but I assume for only small quantities!

"Franked mail must be posted in the area shown on the franking impression, and on the date it is franked. You can choose from a range of different posting methods including the use of Business Post Boxes®, Post Office™, Royal Mail Enquiry Offices, Royal Mail Mail Centres and Royal Mail’s Customer Collection service."

Jody. Do a test send yourself a franked letter and see if it arrives. At the same time send yourself a stamped letter. Same post box. Richard.

Good thought Richard - may just try that!! I'm lucky in that there is a Franked Mail box very close to my office, but good to know :-)
