Car tax pledge for local customers

The East of England Co-op, which operates 20 post offices in towns and villages across the region, is reminding drivers that, although paper tax discs no longer need to be displayed on a vehicle – they can still pop to the East of England Co-op, main post office to pay their car tax.

With main post office counters at stores in Bramford and Manningtree, customers simply take along their vehicle tax renewal letter or V5C document and can pay over the counter with cash, cheques, debit or credit card.

The East of England Co-op is also keen to let members of the local community know that, in addition, they can now set up monthly direct debit payments for their car tax. This new payment method is available to those who need to tax their vehicle from November 1.

Malcolm Austin, post office manager at the East of England Co-op store at Bramford said: “We think the opportunity to pay car tax by monthly direct debit will really help many of our customers manage their household budgets over the year. So for those who don’t have access to the internet and online banking we want to say, ‘Pop in - we’re here to help you set up your car tax payments’.”

Bramford and Manningtree Post Offices also have ‘Combi Tills’ in store open in the evening and on Sundays where customers can buy stamps, withdraw cash and post or collect letters and parcels throughout the store’s opening hours – with both premises boasting plenty of car-parking.

Customers preparing for a winter break can also collect a wide range of currency at East of England Co-op’s post offices – with extra currencies in stock from Canadian dollars to Croatian Kuna, not forgetting Euros; plus arrange travel insurance and pre-loaded travel cards.
