Postal Holding

Postal holding is a service that some of our clients find invaluable. If you are of no fixed abode, or for some reason are not able to receive post at your current address, you can use Fist Stop as a ‘care of’ address. This means that vital documents, such as benefit updates and legal correspondence, can safely be stored with us until you can come in and collect your post.
