Early Extraction™ can transform your incoming mail workflow and gives you:
- access to your mail ahead of normal delivery times – and as early as you need
- the chance to process incoming mail sooner
- your preferred regular collection time.
If your business relies on being able to reach its mail at the first opportunity, each working day then Early Extraction can help. Access whatever part of your incoming post has reached our mail centre and been processed, and do it at the earliest possible time in the morning.
With Early Extraction you can pick up your mail from as early as 00:01 until 06:00; just tell us what time suits you. Sign up, and your mail will be available to collect from your local mail centre at the same time every morning – including Saturdays.
Collectable - and deliverable
Early Extraction is available to use with a range of our other workflow services. And although it’s designed for you to collect from us at a pre-arranged time, for an extra fee, we can deliver to you before 06:00, so you don’t have to make the trip at an unsociable hour.
Plus, if you want access to your post early - but not necessarily THAT early - we also have our Early Collect option that allows you to pick all your available mail from the delivery office at an agreed time between 06.00 and 08.30.
How it works
Early Extraction has no volume restrictions. We know that volumes fluctuate daily and sometimes can’t be predicted. So, you can collect your mail, regardless of quantity. If your business has a Royal Mail Account Manager, contact yours and find out more about how choosing to use Early Extraction can benefit your business. If your business already has an account, contact us on 08457 950 950*. We will tell you how to add Early Extraction. It will speed things up if you can have your Royal Mail account number to hand when you ring us.
Finally, if you are wondering what happens to the mail that comes into our mail centre AFTER you’ve collected your early post; well, we deliver it as your standard daily delivery the very same day. Of course, if you prefer, we can hold onto it until we see you the following day.
If you wish to have your available Early Extraction™ mail delivered before 6:00am, this service can be added as an optional extra. Please use the Early Extraction™ pricing calculator to calculate the total price including any add-on services.
If you wish to have your available mail delivered after 6:00am, you will need to pay separately for the Timed Delivery service. Please do not enter this delivery option into the Early Extraction™ pricing calculator.
