Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
We offer 24 hour service, look for locations that are busy and have other businesses attached for safety. Look for businesses that have been around for more than 5 years. For package receiving you should sign for any package that they sign for, this increases your security and package safety. Business should accept packages from all carriers, FedEx, UPS, DHL, US Mail and even freight carriers. Business should offer free notify service so you will be emailed when a package arrives.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Unlike the Postal Service our customers have access 24 hrs a day to their mailboxes, we accept packages and letters from all the carriers, UPS, FedEx, US Mail even freight services. We sign for any packages that require it and then log them into our system that will automatically email you when we receive a package for you. We have all the benifits of a PO BOX but none of the limits and restrictions. Private mailboxes offer security, privacy and convenience.
