EARTH CLASS MAIL

Earth Class Mail offers the most comprehensive service available today. The flexibility and scope of their service allows anyone, from the small-volume RV'er to the growing corporate business, to use their service. The flexibility presents itself in their long list of services and the smart way they manage their business.

Getting started is simple. First, you choose where you want your mail sent from their list of locations. Earth Class Mail provides a long list of physical addresses to choose from to best meet your business or personal needs. Some of those do come with an additional charge so make sure you read carefully. Next, after completing the required US Postal form 1583 you simply notify your friends, family and business contacts of your address change. Finally, once the mail starts arriving, Earth Class Mail uniquely scans all received sealed envelopes. You then review the outside of the envelope and make the following decision via their system:

  • Request to open and scan the contents
  • Recycle it
  • Shred it
  • Ship it to your location of choice
  • Archive it for safe keeping

Earth Class Mail requires one day to scan your incoming mail and place them in your inbox for review. They also provide a check deposit service with Wells Fargo. This adds additional convenience for those receiving payments via mail.

How much mail you receive will help you determine which level of service best meets your needs. Earth Class Mail provides three levels of service for the individual and additional levels for business needs. Each level comes with a pre-determined number of scans and mail pieces. If you receive more volume than you anticipated, additional charges are applied to your credit card kept on file. For example, the Standard plan includes volume of up to 100 pieces of mail per month. Extra mail is .35 per piece.

Unlike other services, Earth Class Mail has no extra charges for recycling, as well as no additional cost for storing and archiving for 1 month.

Overall, we feel that Earth Class Mail will meet virtually all individual and business needs. This is a full service company that strives to provide the highest level of service to their customers. The responsiveness of the customer service team is outstanding and the capabilities of their website top notch. Earth Class Mail sets the standard in mail scanning services and they earn our highest rating.

MY U.S. POSTBOX

My US PostBox, similar to other providers, offers three different level of services dependant on your needs. However, be careful - the nickel-and-dime fees really add up with this provider. My US PostBox does allow for monthly billing on their mall scanning and forwarding services and requires at least a 6 month contract.

Mail is held in water and fireproof safe storage to best protect from damage. Customers receive an email notification whenever new mail arrives. You would then simply sign into your account at My US PostBox and determine what action you want to take. My US PostBox provides the postmark date, the date received, and the sender information. You may then choose one of the following actions:

  • Have the item mailed to you
  • Have contents scanned
  • Request a translation to your language
  • Pick up your mail
  • Have the mail discarded

Scanning takes two additional days for completion. If you request to have items mailed you may create a bundle of mail to have sent to you as soon as you like. This reduces overall mail handling and delivery charges.

The total cost of the forwarded mail charges is payable in advanced. Forwarding mail to addresses within the USA cost $15.00 per each mailing. We found this overly expensive compared to some of the other providers. My U.S. PostBox also charges a .50 shredding cost per piece.

Hold All Mail (HAM) is a service provided my My U.S PostBox developed to satisfy the needs of individuals who require a U.S. address. However, My US PostBox does not offer check deposits.

Overall, we felt that My US PostBox offered a number of valuable services but we had concern with the fee structure and the extra costs associated with shredding mail and going over the limit within the plan.

The latest trend in mail services allows anyone to manage their mail through the internet. But what does that mean? First, you tell the US Post Office to deliver your mail to a service provider (using a Form 1583). Next, you notify mail senders of your new address. Finally, from a PC connected to the internet, you can read your mail online, print it if needed, shred it, recycle it, or forward the actual mail to any physical address.

There are a number of companies that provide mail scanning services, and the range of what they provide and their focus can vary greatly. Some service providers offer flat rate fees for scanning, and others charge per page. It's important to fully understand what each provider charges. Changing companies and addresses can be a time consuming effort - you want to get it right the first time!

Some of the important aspects to consider before making a decision include:

  • Fees. Is their a flat rate fee, and what does that include.
  • Scope of Services. Do you need checks automatically deposited and mail forwarded on a pre-set basis?
  • Customer service. Is anyone going to be around to assist if you have a mail emergency?
