Good news for consumers as Post Office branches re-open
The SA Post Office is pleased to announce the reopening of most branches that were temporarily closed following extensive negotiations with landlords.
The Post Offices will re-open on Monday 10 May 2021 and will be trading normally. Customers are therefore welcome to visit these post offices for collecting parcels, paying car licences or doing other postal transactions. The branches that will re-open, are:
Belle Ombre, Pretoria
West Acres, Mbombela
Negotiations continue with landlords of the remaining few Post Offices that are closed; they will re-open as soon as agreement is reached with property owners. This is expected to be within the next few weeks.
All a vehicle owner needs to renew a car licence, is his or her identity document and a completed renewal form which can be downloaded from the Post Office website: www.postoffice.co.za. The form is under the domestic products button.
Post Offices are important access points for government services such as social grants. To eliminate long waiting times, the Post Office has introduced separate queues for different transactions. This also serves to eliminate crowding and ensures that Covid-19 regulations are adhered to.
The SA Post Office offers the most cost-effective delivery service for small international parcels and therefore plans to play a growing role in delivering e-commerce parcels. Its network of outlets is one of the reasons it is able to offer a unique service, and the organisation intends to maintain its extensive network.
