PO Boxes

How do PO boxes work ? I've sent something to a company and the address is a PO box. I've tracked the delivery of the item on the Royal Mail website and it's saying that they tried to deliver the item but no-one was there so they have the item and the addresse (sp) needs to either pick it up or arrange re-delivery. Now I thought a po box was litteraly a box where you had your mail sent and you picked it up when you wanted. The item was sent special delivery which I thought didn't require a signature so I'm a bit confused. I've e-mailed the company but I just thought I'd ask on here

No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

    Special delivery needs a signature mate.

    I thought that they work in 2 x ways.

    1] You want to keep your private address private so you buy/rent a PO box address that people send things to but they end up at your 'real' address.

    or

    2] The items are sent to a PO box depot where the company signs for mail on behalf of you and you go and pick up.

    Maybe your company has option no 1 and wasn't in???

    Cheers lads. Chrismac I didn't realise that a po box could be a way to keep your address private
