Hi I'm moving to the area in October and I'm confused!  I know my house doesn't have a correos postal delivery and appreciate I can set up a post box but does official mail ie car tax, IBI etc that has my actual property address on them get redirected to the PO Box or will I have to give my PO Box address to everyone as a correspondent address. The person I'm buying my house from didn't have a PO Box and has outstanding IBI and traffic fines as mail wasn't delivered..I'd appreciate it if someone could clear up my confusion..many thanks

I’ve recently moved here and set up a box in the post office

 Address your post to your postal address and the PO put it in your box for collection.
Its worked for me thus far

If my memory serves me correctly it was about €75 for the year.

Thanks so much, I was hoping that would be the case but wanted to be sure as the correos website is a bit vague. Thanks once again

You can also have your mail and parcels delivered to Velez Stores (The English Shop) at the Poligono Industrial, Velez Rubio. They open longer hours than Correos and charge €47 pa.

Thanks Lorna, I've contacted Mick at Velez stores and will definitely use him for larger items. What I can't get my head around is how  items with the property address but not a PO Box address such as my  car registration document, insurance documents, bills and perish the thought but say a speeding fine would  find their way to my PO box if it's not noted in the address.  I assume from a previous reply that  Correos tie up the addresses, I'm sure it will all become clear once I move in. Thanks again Angie

Hi Angie

Re your car insurance, IBI (council tax), road tax etc, you have to provide them with your mailing address. I emailed the town hall with our mailing address (we come under Lorca), used Google translate and had a reply within an hour. 

Good luck with the move. 

Lorna

Thanks again Lorna that's very helpful. I'm moving near Fontanares so I'll come under Lorca town hall too so I will do the same as you.  Angie

Even when you have a very clear postal address in the town not campo the mail is hit & miss via correos. We've lived here 8 years and only once received our car tax reminder.
