What colour postboxes do you have?
Currently we have Red, White, Ivory, Black, Pink, Silver blinged up sparkly, Mint Green, Yellow, Purple postboxes. However we do offer a custom painted service so if there’s a specific colour you want that we don’t have then let us give you a price for your very own custom postbox.
Can you deliver the Postbox to my venue?
Yes, we can deliver the postbox to you for a small additional fee (see the “Delivery” page) but some clients choose to collect the postbox themselves from us. We also offer a UK wide delivery service for the flat rate of £90. Please note that the George V pillar box & Pink Penfold pillarbox is delivery by us only.
How much are the boxes to hire, and how long do we have them for?
The smaller postboxes cost £45 to hire if you collect them yourself if you want the Pink Penfold postbox these are £65 if you collect. The postbox will usually be available to collect atleast 1 day before your Wedding and need to be returned on the next working day. The fullsize pillarboxes are £125 + delivery
I want to hire the George V pillar box. How much is it and can I collect it?
The George V pillar box is available to hire for £125 + Delivery. Due to the size of the pillar box this is delivery only by ourselves.
If you deliver, when do I get the postbox?
When we deliver to your chosen venue it will be there in plenty of time for your guests arriving and normally collected the following day.
Some others that hire Wedding postboxes want large cash deposits left with them incase of damage, do you?
No, we don’t ask for large cash deposits but we do take a security deposit via a debit or credit card authorisation and this will be cancelled on the safe return of the Wedding postbox.
Do I have to use the postbox at a Wedding?
Not at all. You can use it for whatever you want. In the past we had hired them out to businesses to use to collect Prize draw entries and we even hired one out to Santa & Postman Pat last year . If you’re looking to use a postbox at an event then take a look at the George V pillar box.
Do you only hire the postboxes as I'd like to buy one?
No, the main side of the business is hire but if you want to buy a postbox then get in touch to discuss it further.
Can I see the postbox before I order it?
Yes you can. Check them out at Wedding Fayres as we do a few of these in the Spring & Autumn.
Is the postbox supplied with a personalised card in the front?
Yes it does. A week or so before your hire date we’ll be intouch to see what you want putting on the front of the postbox. Of course the card is yours to keep as a momento of your big day.
Are the postboxes heavy?
The Red and White postboxes are cast steel so weigh approx 15kgs and come in a custom built flight-case. The other postboxes are made of fibreglass so a lot lighter at approx. 2kgs and also come in a transport case.
What are the dimensions of the postboxes?
The steel boxes are 24″ x 10″ x 14″. The Fibreglass postboxes are 24″ x 10″ x 10″. Both come in travel cases so will fit in the average car boot with ease. The George V pillar box is 63″ (1.6m) x 29″.
