Two Post Office branches in the Bath area have launched Drop & Go, a new service that allows business customers and internet power sellers to use a fast track pre-paid card to send their mail.
The new Drop & Go service offers an efficient mailing option for small, local businesses that regularly spend more than £20 a week on postage.
Small business customers in the Bath area are now able to simply hand over their mail at the fast drop counter at these branches and swipe their pre-paid Drop & Go card. The new service which is being rolled out in over 2,200 Post Office branches across the UK aims to save SMEs valuable time and is free to join.
Davyd Nash, Head of Post Office Small Business Mailing Services, said: “Over half of small businesses visit our Post Office branches every week. We want to make our services as easy to access as possible. This new service allows them to simply drop off their mail and leave it to the Post Office team to process.”
Further branches are expected to sign up to the service in the coming months.
Simply ask at one of the following Post Offices in the Bath area for an application form to open an account:

- Moorfields, 28 Moorland Road, Bath, BA2 3PW

The Post Office, now independent of Royal Mail, is the largest retail network in the UK, with over 11,500 branches.
It serves around 20 million customers a week and half of all small businesses and 99.7% of people live within three miles of their nearest Post Office outlet. For many rural communities the post office is the only retail outlet. Post offices remain highly valued and trusted and are the focal point for many communities.
