Access postal services earlier & later than ever before 29 March 2011

Customers of Wessex Garage, Douglas can now transact their postal business and top-up their fuel all at one location thanks to the introduction of a self-service Pay and Post kiosk in the premise.

The move is part of a wave of postal kiosks being introduced to provide the public with improved access to postal services particularly early in the morning and after 5.30pm with emphasis on weekend access. The expansion has already seen the introduction of Pay and Post kiosks in the Crosby Hotel and Shoprite, Victoria Road, Douglas.

The new location at the Wessex Garage, Alexander Drive, Douglas will provide customers and residents of the local area with the opportunity to transact their postal business earlier than ever before with early morning opening from 7am and late night closing until 10pm.

The postal kiosks offer postage of letters and small packets, purchase of postage labels and the payment of utility bills (MEA, Manx Telecom, Manx Gas and Government Rates).

Pay and Post kiosks were first trialled in Regent Street Post Office, Douglas in August and 94% of the first 600 customers to use the kiosks rated them as excellent and said they would use them again.

Adrian Christian, of the Wessex Garage said:

“We are delighted that Isle of Man Post Office has chosen our premises for their new kiosk. We offer a range of services at the Wessex Garage and our extended opening hours mean that customers can carry out postal transactions at a time that suits them. We hope that local residents will take advantage of having the kiosk so close to their homes.”

Geoff Corkish MBE MHK, Vice Chairman, Isle of Man Post Office said:

“I am conscious of the value and need for services provided by the Post Office in our communities. Therefore I am very pleased to see the installation of the very popular postal kiosk being placed in this busy and convenient area of the Wessex Garage, together with long opening hours of accessibility. I very much hope that this facility will meet many of the postal needs of the community.”
