Title: Cheap and Good Business Address and Mail Forwarding Solution Needed!
Post by: FreeBird on August 27, 2020, 01:08:32 PM
Hi All,

I would like a business address (street address, not PO Box) for my business.
So I don't have to use my own home address.

I would also like them to hold my mail and and forward it to me anywhere in the country while I'm traveling.

USPS is out - various reasons.
The UPS Store has what I want - but it's expensive.
It's about $380 the first year just for the service. Plus $5 service fee and shipping charge any time my mail gets forwarded to me. So it would be about another $520 per year on top of that.

I can't spend $900 per year just on an address and getting my mail.

Anyone know of a better/cheaper solution??

Thanks!

I use mailboxforwarding.com, which runs me $25-$45 per month. They scan everything, so 75% of my mail is digital. The other 25% might be checks or replacement credit cards, stuff I physically need. They forward it and you can chose from different options. So the $45/mo reflects a couple forwards using priority mail.

Traveling Mailbox has worked well for us in the past. We paid for a year upfront, and it cost us $150.

Do you have a neighbor you could pay to receive your business mail and act as your registered agent?
