Why rent a private mailbox?
A private mailbox rental makes sense for a host of reasons. For business owners, a private mailbox from Box & Send Business Centers gives your business legitimacy. Our mailboxes aren’t PO Boxes you like get with the Post Office. Instead, they are an actual street address that can be used as a headquarters for your business and on all business documentation.
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 use 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 of its arrival via Google Text. When packages arrive, we also sign for them, input the details (including tracking number) into our Package Signature book, place a ‘package for you’ slip in your box, and text you of its arrival. No need to worry about porch pirates here!
