What our customers say about using Anytime Mailbox as their Temporary Address

I purchased a mailbox to establish a business address for my home-based web design company. It was quick and straightforward, including the interaction with a notary online. I now have an excellent-looking address!

Joe H.

Greatness! Love the service options! Needed an easy-to-access, efficient business address. A cost-effective and value-focused place that provides the virtual business address that meets my needs.

Ali S.

Great way to live abroad or be nomadic and keep your mail in one spot. We use our mailbox for an LLC and have been happy with the mail forwarding when we need to have something sent to us.

Shane H.

Starting my own business and wanted a solid address that was not a PO box address, I would take the time to look into this as an option as a business owner. Perfect for what I needed!

Devin B.

As my main office is at home, the service provides me with a separate discrete mailing address that protects my home privacy, while giving me a “physical” address for my mail. It’s been an amazing tool for my business.

Matt H.

Service is quick, and the cost is fair. I’m a small business owner so this seemed right up my alley in terms of what I needed. Cost and reliability based on reviews. Needed something that was cheap and cost-effective.

Frequently Asked Questions on a Temporary Address

How do I set up a temporary address?

To set up a temporary address, locate the ‘Temporary Change of Address Form’ on the USPS website and fill out the form. Have your current and new addresses ready, prepare payment, record the confirmation code and receive your welcome kit.

USPS’s temporary change of address service provides forwarding of mail to a temporary address for up to six months, which can be extended if necessary. Mail will stop being forwarded on the end date you listed in your request. When using a virtual address for your temporary address, you can opt to have the change be more permanent by completing a change of address form.

You can use a temporary address for mail by applying for the United States Postal Service Change-of-Address Form or the USPS Hold Mail Service. This will help ensure you don’t miss important mail while away from your primary residence.

A P.O. box provides a physical mailbox at a post office, whereas a virtual address offers an online or app-managed real street address for a more professional image and extra features like mail scanning, forwarding, and discarding.

Using a temporary address provides privacy protection, flexibility for those on the move, and convenience when relocating or expanding businesses.
