Definition of mail, packages, parcels

MODETTI® is one of the few professional mail handling firms in Singapore willing to accept a variety of mails, packages and parcels on behalf of our clients. In our practice, we do prescribe to international standards of service and these are the definitions of various types of what is accepted:

Mails
: generally referring to letters and small packages that fit into standard mailboxes/ postboxes and are not bulky. To Singapore Post, our national postal service, these are classified as standard mail and easily portable. Most of the time, it would contain documents and papers, thus may or may not even require declaration of value.

Packages
: generally referring to non standard mail that is either in envelope or softly boxed. Packages will usually weigh less than 5.0 kilograms and each will often not exceed the width and depth of a piece of A4 paper, for reference. Instead of documents or papers, packages often contain item(s) and can be of irregular shapes. For sending such non standard mail or packages, every postal/ courier service will require a declaration of the value of its contents and details or descriptions.

Parcels
: generally referring to non standard mail that is strongly boxed. For example, parcel can be a regular watch box, or a carton box that weighs less than 10.0 kilograms. For sending such parcels, every postal/ courier service will require a declaration of the value of its contents clearly, and details or descriptions.

Storage and Capacity Limit

MODETTI® is not a storage or warehousing facility located in the prime business district.

We provide commercial services but not industrial services. MODETTI® handles mostly mails and our services are primarily to assist our business clients with their mails and occasional small packages.

We are also limited by space constraints and particularly so, as we serve thousands of clients, with easily several hundreds of letters passing through our processing daily!

It is only out of willingness to help clients that we may accept larger items and help to hold mails or packages or parcels up to a certain period of time if space and conditions are permissible.

Our extra willingness is not to be mistaken as a storage or warehousing facility, or any obligation like a safe deposit service, a security storage or the likes. For suitable storage or warehousing facilities in Singapore, please visit StorHub (www.storhub.com.sg) or ExtraSpace (www.extraspace.com.sg)

For client convenience and simplicity, we adopted the international standard of calculating combined space area taken, via volume in cubic centimeters (cm3). This is easily calculated when you have in centimetres (cm), the Width X Depth X Height of each parcel, and add the grand totals per parcel altogether.

Cubic Volume / Area space of per parcel = Width X Depth X Height in centimeters (cm) = total cm3

For our clients on any existing International Mail Concierge service, we may accept a combination of mail/ packages/ parcels which does not take up more than 20,000 cm3 of area space, and may safekeep this for until the last day of the service validity. This is significantly more than what any other service provider will willingly allow as this means a large space will be set aside to safekeep one or more items which is part of this whole area space. Should the total space exceed this already generous allowance, the excess items need to be collected or forwarded out within 14 business days from the date of receipt.

For our clients on existing International Mail Forward service that is at least 1 year, we may accept a combination of mail/ packages/ parcels which does not take up more than 15,000 cm3 of area space, and may safekeep this for a maximum number of 14 days by which it should be collected or forwarded to the client by then.

As a recognised anti-fraud prevention, this exception is not applicable for 6 Months International Mail Forward service. By means of this allowance, it is significantly more than what any other service provider will allow as this means a large space will be set aside to safekeep one or more items which is part of this whole area space.

Should the total space exceed this already generous allowance, the excess items must be collected or forwarded out within 7 business days from the date of receipt.

For our clients on existing Business/ Personal Mailing Address service that is for at least 1 year, we may accept a combination of mail/ packages/ parcels which does not take up more than 6,500 cm3 of area space, and may safekeep this for a maximum number of 7 days by which it should be collected or forwarded (if a local mail forwarding service is subscribed to) out to the client by then.

The service is for mainly mail. As such, maximum weight we may hold anytime is not exceeding 3 kgs (kilogrammes).

By means of these allowances, it is significantly more than what any other service provider will willingly allow as this means a very HUGE space committment considering the number of companies we serve.

Should the total space exceed this generous allowances, MODETTI® shall politely decline the further receipt or collection of new mail and the excess items must be collected or forwarded out within 3 business days from the date of receipt.

As a fair measure, this helps ensure that our willingness will not be mistaken as storage or warehousing facility which will easily charge 6 times of our low fees, just to allow storage of items that take up such space.

As standard industry practice, we cannot accept or help to safekeep anything containing contraband, items that are considered flammable/ combustible/ radioactive and or are generally illegal in Singapore.

Acceptance of goods or shipments?

MODETTI® is neither a storage facility nor a freight forwarder.

We are not industrial and are not equipped with forklifts or warehousing manpower. We may accept “manageable sized” shipments on behalf of our clients, provided that these are not cargo type or palletized shipment and that they are collected or forwarded out quickly based on the above guidelines on storage and safekeeping.

Generally, if the goods or shipment are “manageable sized”, that would mean it can still be easily lifted and moved by an average sized office lady who weighs less than 55kgs.

By providing our friendly and efficient mail handling and re-direction services, this has to be highlighted because only commercial services are provided within our offices, which are staffed by office workers.

Forwarding mails within and outside Singapore

MODETTI® as an experienced service provider since 2002, has local and international mail forwarding services and various options too. You may find out the details here (www.modetti.com/forwarding.htm).

MODETTI® has the lowest fees since we base calculations on weight, rather than number of letters/ packages or parcels. Our fees are typically 80% lower versus other professional mail forwarding services, but we do seem to be favourites judging by the numbers of international clients we support in more than 30 countries, since 2002!

To have your mails forwarded overseas, please consider signing up either International Mail Forward service, or International Mail Concierge Service.

These two services are quite different as International Mail Concierge means you will be assigned a senior executive of MODETTI®, and enjoy personalised concierge services above normal taking of instructions for forwarding preferences and changes. Mails can be opened at instruction, read or faxed or scanned and emailed to you in detail, alongside with taking your instructions on the handling/ deposit of cheques or records.

Opening and reporting of mails

Yes, we may do so under your specific instructions if you have signed up for the International Mail Concierge service or have the Prepaid Postage Account (PPA) add-on.

As a known Professional Bureau and one of the top service providers in Singapore, our stringent preservation and protection of client privacy is very well known.

With International Mail Concierge service, it means you will be assigned a senior executive of our firm who shall discreetly handle your mails per your preferences. Via this service, our clientele currently includes very well known and famous persons, international celebrities and foreign dignitaries amongst others who appreciate business class services.

With Prepaid Postage Account (PPA) add-on, really just a simple deposit. It is your best friendly e-wallet whether starting at S$50 or S$100, takes care of micro payments as when you need. Should you decide to end the add-on or conveniences somehow, remaining balance is returned to you after verifying no outstanding/ due payments.
