According to statistics compiled by Project Untethered, the emerging digital nomad trend is still thriving despite Covid-19. In fact, digital nomads have more than doubled in the U.S. over the past couple of years, from 4.8 million in 2018 to 10.9 million in 2020.
More people than ever need dependable mail services, no matter where they might be. From a business and personal perspective, receiving mail is essential. By renting a private mailbox, you can ensure you still get all your parcels and letters.
In this article, we’ll cover all the benefits of renting a mailbox.
Getting mail can be difficult when you’re not home to receive it. That’s where mail services, such as private mailboxes, can come in very handy.
They are services, usually including mailbox rental, that makes receiving mail much easier, and come in a range of fixed or custom plans. Some mailbox plans enable you to get letters only, and others both allow for customers to receive both packages and paperwork.
In some cases, the mailbox service firm’s staff automatically open and scan your mail before sending it to you securely. Then, you can read it on your laptop or smart device. Mail forwarding is also a common service, which means you can receive hard copy versions of your mail, but it can enable you to disguise your home mail address.
Shoppers who live overseas sometimes also take advantage of mail forwarding, so they can shop in places like the U.S. and then have a mailbox rental company deliver packages to their address in other countries.
Because shipping is usually free in the contiguous USA, this enables international shoppers to save money. They can combine several different purchases from various online vendors into one consignment for shipping to them at their home elsewhere in the world.
Because you don’t have to reveal your home address, if you use a private mailbox service, it can increase the security associated with sending and receiving mail.
A home-based business, such as a recruitment agency, can especially benefit from these services. There’s then no chance of strangers showing up unexpectedly at your front door, professing how much they want to work for Google.
A mailbox also keeps your business and personal (private) correspondence separate. In some cases, mail forwarding services such as receive/scan/email services can also be a good short term solution for business travel.
Perhaps you have some important paperwork coming, but will be overseas? By setting up a temporary private mailbox, the service provider can scan and send your paperwork to you via email.
More Than a PO Box
Although it might seem similar at first, a private mailbox service is not the same as a PO Box service. A PO Box service does not enable a person who rents it to use it as an official address for business purposes or provide a searchable location listing in Google. A mailbox is different because it can be used as a business address and even added to letterheads and business cards in most cases.
PO Boxes are also viewed suspiciously by some delivery companies who will outright refuse to deliver to them. But mailboxes can receive shipments from anyone.
