Does anyone on the Forum use a Po box and is it complicated to have one?

Yes and No in that order. Go to Post Office - fill in form- show ID - Pay Money - they give you a key - Job Done

It's about €35 a year for a box inside the post office or one with access on the outside wall so you can visit out of hours. You pay for the Calendar year (renewable end December for the next year) and still pay the full amount even if you sign up in July. If you don't pay then the box (and number) goes to someone else and your mail gets returned.

For your own box near your house ...

Go to Post Office - Buy Box and lock - Fit it yourself or get someone to do it for you - Go back to post office again to tell them you have a new box and ask them to associate it with your name. Postman will visit and put a number on the box which then becomes your address for postal purposes. Post office will advise the post code. No repeat costs after buying the box which coincidentally is €35. Whole process made very much more efficient and level of service for ever after moves to a new and efficient high if you give the postie that delivers to the box a bottle of the cheap Lidl whisky and shake his hand.

That's great and thanks, I just think renting and changing address it will be easier to have a PO box.
