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.

USA 2 ME

USA 2 Me attempts to mimic the efforts of the better companies but fails in the process. USA 2 Me offers four plans including priority, express, priority gold, and express gold. While the annual fees seem low don't be fooled - the add-ons are outrageous.

Junk mail discarding is not free across all plans. Depending on which plan you've chosen be prepared to pay for junk mail to be recycled or forwarded. USA 2 Me requires they hold a credit card or deposit on the account to pay for those subsequent and frequent charges like recycling, scanning and forwarding mail.

Mail held in the account longer than 30 days is charged a fee of $1 per pound. USA 2 Me does not offer check deposits and we weren't confident of their scanning abilities. The website says they offer scanning at a low cost but provided no additional information and no way to find the cost.

Customer service was another concern as with every attempt to reach them we received an unprofessional sounding voicemail. No hours of customer service were provided in the voicemail and that created concern if we needed to resolve an urgent issue.

USA 2 Me doesn't offer freebies as it's mainly geared toward non US residents looking to appear in the US. USA 2 Me forwarding mail charges were outrageous. The fees range from $7.25 to $28.95 to send one pound of mail at your discretion. That said, USA 2 Me ranks lowest on our list. Pass this one by!

Are you struggling with effectively managing your personal or professional mail? Whether you are living abroad or RV'ing across the country, or work in a company with large mail volume but little staff to handle it, mail management can be a constant battle.

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.

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.
