Experience convenience and security in postal management with a virtual mailbox. Say goodbye to drives to the post office or losing battles with mail thieves and porch pirates. Manage and access your postal mail and packages securely, whenever, wherever, with Anytime Mailbox.

A virtual mailbox is a service that allows customers to access and manage postal mail remotely via an app or a web portal.

With a virtual mailbox, a customer’s postal mail and packages are delivered to a safe and staffed location. The virtual mailbox operator takes a photo of the mail items and sends them to the customer via a secure virtual mailbox app. The customer can remotely access their virtual mailbox and make requests to further manage their mail, such as scanning its content, forwarding to a different address, shredding or recycling, or scheduling for pickup.

A virtual mailbox offers convenience and security for small business owners, digital nomads, freelancers, frequent travelers, students, and anyone seeking to add an extra layer of protection to their safety and privacy.

What our customers say about using Anytime Mailbox for their Virtual Mailbox

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.
