Everyone has a mailbox. A lot of time it gets crammed full of junk mail that gets brought into our homes and businesses and someone needs to sit and sort through all of it just to find the pieces of important mail.
If this is a business or a home with multiple people the task is even larger because there is more mail to sort and then there is delivering the mail to the different people or setting it aside for each person.
Then there is the junk mail some can be easily recycled, but some of it really should be shredded to protect sensitive information from identity theft.
Now that doesn’t need to be done daily, but if you let it pile up too much it will become too much of a chore.
The question then becomes how often does it need to be done? and who has to do it? and if it’s a house you may argue over it like taking out the trash.
If it’s a business you may have a service that does the shredding and that’s great, but you likely pay by the pound and that mail is likely going to end up costing your company over time.
Here’s another bad thing about regular mail that everyone has faced at least once and likely much more often than that.
You know something important is coming in the mail maybe it’s an invoice for your side business you have been expecting or maybe you are waiting on an insurance check from the fender bender you were in last month.
While you are at work you can’t help but wonder if today is the day that mail has arrived and you can’t just go check either. Well if you had an online mailbox it would be as easy as logging into an email account.
Then there’s the question of what you are going to do about your mail when you are on vacation?
Are you going to bother a friend, family member, or neighbor to come by and collect it daily for you?
Or are you going to risk letting it sit there for a few days at a time or worse let it sit there for the whole week or 2 and hope no takes notice and steals your mail and possibly your identity?
Why virtual mailbox is important?
A virtual mailbox will eliminate that worry as well and if you are expecting anything important or decide to check and see what happens to come while you are gone on vacation and see that something important did come you can have it delivered to you wherever you are.
You can have your mail forwarded to a center that weeds out the junk for you then scan the front of the envelope and then you decide what to do with it from there.
Do you want it forwarded to you at your home, or another location virtually anywhere, or maybe just recycled or shredded and recycled? It’s entirely up to you.
Even better you decide how quickly you want the mail delivered to you. If it’s really important you can have it the next day, not so important a few days later.
You control everything, and you know where it is from the day it is received in your virtual PO box. Virtual mailboxes just don’t handle mail they can also handle packages too.
Online postal mailboxes can handle a single person, a household or a business and are great for small businesses.
