Additionally, a private mailbox with  Box & Send Business Center provides security and peace of mind for a very minimal cost (tax write-off for business owners). USPS, UPS, FedEx, Amazon, and DHL deliver mail to us each day. We sort it and put it into its respective mailboxes.

If a signature is required for a mail piece, we sign on your behalf and notify you of its arrival via Google Text.
