Virtual mailboxes are steadily becoming a must-have. What started as a way to get instant access to your postal mail is now an indispensable tool in business, travel, and security.
Digitizing your postal mail and managing it anytime and anywhere is a good enough reason to get a virtual mailbox. But here are 8 more reasons to choose Anytime Mailbox for your virtual mailbox.
1. Over 1,800 Locations and Counting!
As they say in business, the three most important things are location, location, and location. With 1,800+ partner mail centers and coworking spaces (as of November 2022) across the United States and worldwide, Anytime Mailbox provides an ever-increasing list of locations to choose from.
Anytime Mailbox is available in more countries and more U.S. states. If you run a small business, you can choose a location and have a business footprint in the state of your choice.
You can also choose a location on the basis of tax and business incentives that fit your operations.
Our locations are prime locations ideal for a wide variety of purposes. In need of a business address in a business district? We’ve got you! Struggling with a change of address every time you relocate for work or school? Choose a location from our website listings, and you’ll have a permanent mailing address in no time! You can continue using it even if you move out of the country.
We are continually partnering with PO Mailbox Stores, Mailbox Business Centers, and Coworking operators, so your choice of Anytime Mailbox locations continues to grow as our operator base expands.
2. Topnotch Technology
Our team of highly skilled software developers and engineers ensures that your virtual mailbox is backed by industry-leading technology. We continuously innovate to keep the platform at its best for our Renters and Operators.
The Anytime Mailbox app is intuitive; it is easy to use and features a sleek dashboard, both for Renters and Operators. We are also continually updating with language localization in order to expand the location and market reach of our virtual mailboxes.
3. World-Class Customer Service and Technical Support
Anytime Mailbox customer support is the best in the industry and is one of the key reasons we are the virtual mailbox of choice by thousands of Renters.
While our competitors typically get back to customer concerns in 2-10 working days, here at Anytime Mailbox, we are able to assist our Renters and Operators and offer feedback within hours.
Anytime Mailbox customer support is available via phone from Monday to Friday, 6 AM until Midnight PST, and can also be reached via web chat, WhatsApp, and email.
4. Security and Privacy
Your Security and Privacy are our Top Priorities
- All your information is digitally protected by the best data encryption technology available. We cover the privacy of our customers on multiple levels. All images uploaded and viewed in your browser go over a 2048-bit SSL connection, making data interception virtually impossible. We also purposely do not send pictures of mail in email notifications. All correspondence has to be viewed on our secure web portal.
We Keep Your Home Address Safe
- Your virtual mailbox street address is an extra layer of security. If you have a home-based business or side hustle, you can use this real street address as your business mailing address. Think of the security risks if you use your home address! Anyone can show up at your doorstep.
Please take note that while you can use the virtual mailbox address as your business mailing address, you may not be able to use it to register your business.
We Protect You Against Mail Theft and Porch Pirates - All mail items you receive will be stored in a secure staffed location. They will be kept safe by our partner operators until you pick them up or make a request to forward them to another address.
5. Wide Array of Pricing Options
Essential virtual mailbox services start as low as $5.99 a month in some locations. That’s the price of a latte! It’s that simple and affordable.
Note that service plans and pricing differ depending on the location. The median rate is around $10 a month. Some locations are a lot pricier as they are in prime business districts or prestigious buildings. They are what we consider vanity addresses and can cost more. However, $39.99 is nothing compared to leasing a space in your CBD, which can go for tens of thousands of $$$.
6. Easy to Use and Convenient Mail Management
The Anytime Mailbox platform is user-friendly and intuitive. If you know how to use basic email, you’ll have no problem managing your postal mail and virtual mailbox.
Wherever you are in the world, you’ll be able to check your virtual mailbox and manage your mail. You can do this with your phone, tablet, desktop computer, or laptop. All you need is a decent internet connection.
The app lets you make the following requests:
Open & Scan - The staff at your virtual mailbox location digitizes your mail so you can read its contents. Your scanned postal mail is stored in your virtual mailbox account, free of charge. You can access your scanned mail for as long as your account is active. You can organize the files, download them to your devices, send as email attachments, or delete them as you see fit.
Forward - Request to have your mail or packages shipped to a different address.
Mail/Parcel Consolidation - You can have several packages or postal mail sent to the virtual mailbox location for consolidation and then have them forwarded to you or another address once all items have been received.
Shred - Discard unwanted mail but keep your information secure by having the document shredded.
Recycle - Discard the mail, but as the contents may not be essential or confidential, have it dumped into the recycling bin.
Mail/Package pickup - Schedule a day to pick up your mail or packages from your virtual mailbox location.
You can also have mail items forwarded to your preferred location or set an appointment for pickup at your convenience.
7. A Real Street Address Adds Credibility
The real street address that comes with your virtual mailbox can be in a sought-after building or a premium business center. This gives your business or side hustle a more polished and professional image.
Using a PO Box as your business address and putting it on your website, business card, invoices, or print ads will make potential clients think you have a fly-by-night operation!
You may also use the real street address to register your business, but remember that every state has different regulations and protocols. Please verify with your state’s Secretary of State or local Small Business Administration (SBA) office.
