MailPost guarantees 99% of ALL its customers’ promotional material to be delivered*.
(*unless it is disclosed and returned to the advertiser)
What happens if MailPost fails to deliver the material as guaranteed?
If for some reason 99% of the printed material assigned for delivery is not delivered within a delivery pocket by our Postie, then MailPost will reimburse the print and distribution cost for that pocket or at its discretion, reprint and re-distribute that material at no additional costs to the customer within the effected pocket(s).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can MailPost make such a bold guarantee?
Firstly, there is a practical reason why we can confidently make this guarantee. MailPost uses Owner-Operators who are independant business people and who have acquired the rights to distribute in a mailpost pocket of approximately 1000 homes. Naturally any independant business person has a vested interest in ensuring that their business is looked after and it grows in value.
Secondly, the Owner-Operator takes full ownership for the distribution of the material in its designated pockets. He or she is contractually obliged to deliver the material personally into each and every available letterbox. The use of an employee for distribution work is prohibited by MailPost, unless it is supervised in-field. The supervision must be in-field with the employee walking the beat and the Owner-Operator able to sight and verify that the employee has walked the beat and has been GPS tracked.
Finally, every Owner-Operator is equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS) device which tracks the individual’s route while he or she is walking along each street. If an off-sider is walking on the other side of the street, he or she is required to carry a separate GPS device.
Why does MailPost need such a guarantee?
This is an essential part of the MailPost business success. It differentiates the MailPost business from that of its competitors.
Is distribution to all letterboxes?
Unfortunately it is not always possible to deliver into every single letterbox in every MailPost Zone. Some of these letterboxes are inaccessible to the MailPost Agent, especially in strata buildings and behind locked gates or doors.
The Agent is also not permitted to deliver any material into letterboxes with signs indicating that they do not want any unaddressed mail. MailPost will always respect the privacy of such owners and will not deliver any material into such letterboxes.
If the letterbox is full or it is damaged and the material is likely to fall out and litter the streets, MailPost will not deliver into such letterboxes. MailPost does not permit its agents to remove our competitors’ material from any letterbox. Also, if the promotional material does not fit into a letterbox the Agent will not “jam” it in.
Our Agents will not insert material into any letterbox if there is a personal risk or perceived threat by doing so. This could be an unleashed dog or an abusive owner. It could also be a group of unsociable persons standing along a street. To avoid confrontation, the Agent will skip the delivery along that section of the street or the entire street, if necessary. Similarly, there will be no delivery of any material made into letterboxes where there is no or difficult access due to road works, street closures, building-works or during extreme weather conditions.
