Competitor prices shown are based on research made on 12 May 2015. Figures shown here are as a result of information taken from various websites and telephone enquiries.
Personal Post Box: We charge a staggering 57% less than Royal Mail to set up a Post Box, and we offer a host of mail handling options that they don’t. Our annual Business Post Box plan is 45% less than their’s. (Based on our Annual Personal and Business PO Box plans).
Whilst we don’t go into specific cost comparisons here, a few quick calls will quickly establish that our Virtual Office plan prices are amongst the lowest around. They can be up to 5 times less than some of our competitors, and don’t forget that our itemised charges and deposits are often much lower too.
Virtual Offices are just that, virtual. So why pay massively over the odds for an over-staffed, fancy London building, that you’ll never even see or use?
Surely all you really require is a prestige WC1 address, top flight mail and call handling services, monthly hot desking facilities (available with our Virtual office PLUS plan). With a British Monomarks Virtual Office that’s precisely what you get.
Itemised Charges and Deposits
Our itemised charges and refundable deposits are amongst the lowest in the industry.
With us your mail is totally secure and confidential – every single item of mail we handle for you is individually tracked by our bespoke system via a unique reference.
Our system instantly recognises your account name, names or Box number and follows the individual mail handling instructions you gave us, applying the appropriate class of postage and mail handling option you requested
