Emirates Post Group has announced the launch of a new service that allows residents of selected villa communities in the UAE to have their mail delivered to their doorstep.
The MyHome service, a personal PO Box facility, sees Emirates Post Group installing a mailbox on the compound wall or near the main door of the customer's villa.
The box comes with separate compartments for incoming and outgoing mail and postmen drop mail into the box or collect outgoing mail from it, either daily or three times a week, depending on the option selected by the customer.
The customer pays only the annual rental fee of AED750 for mail delivery 3 times a week, and AED1,250 for delivery 6 times a week, the company said in a statement.
Ibrahim Bin Karam, chief commercial officer, said: "We are pleased to offer this premium service in selected villa communities. This is part of our efforts to deliver mail directly to subscribers' homes under a pilot project. We are confident that residents of these selected communities will find this service useful and convenient.
"The MyHome service was introduced in response to the demand for door delivery of mail. It eliminates the need to drive to the post office to collect mail," he added.
Subscription to MyHome service can be done by filling a form available at all post offices or through the EPG website. The box will be installed seven days after receiving the application.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
