Gareth Foster – owner of Private Box

We are a mail forwarding company created in 2005 to give our customers to have the freedom to live and do business anywhere. Our HQ is located in Wellington (New Zealand’s capital city) with addresses in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.

We have three core values here at Private Box:

  1. Peace of mind – giving you, our customer, space to live life how and where you want worry free.
  2. Thinking differently – we solve real-world problems in new and creative ways. We will keep striving for a better way to do things.
  3. Enjoyment – life is for living so get out there and enjoy it! We will take care of the rest.

We are registered. Private Box is a Registered Company (1656061) under the Companies Act (NZ) and a registered Postal Operator under the Postal Act (NZ). These acts provide a legal framework for delivering our services to you.

We have a small team of nine people and have steadily grown every year to have 1300+ customers. We process thousands of items of mail every week with Monday being our busiest day.

We are closely linked with two businesses at our central Auckland location. Private Box Auckland is located in Parnell in a building shared with Security Deposits Vault, a safe deposit box provider. We also work closely with Space Station Storage to provide secure long-term document storage in Auckland
