New Zealand Post Services in the quake-affected area

Update on New Zealand Post Services in the quake-affected area
Sunday 27 February 2011

Limited postal services will resume on Tuesday 1 March. The extent of where can deliver to and pick up mail from is dependent on what areas are cleared by the authorities, are deemed safe for our staff to access, and also on staff availability.

For those addresses where we cannot deliver, New Zealand Post will hold the mail at an alternative location for pickup where a redirection is not in place. Details of pickup sites will be published from Tuesday 1 March.

Free Mail Redirection
New Zealand Post is providing free mail redirection services for residential customers in the earthquake affected areas.
