Why Should I Rent a Mailbox?
Renting a private mailbox is becoming a popular option for private residents and businesses in need of increased security and privacy. Here are the primary benefits of renting a private mailbox.
When you rent a private mailbox, the location of the box is known only to you. This is especially valuable if you have had issues or concerns about identity theft. Identity thieves commonly target home mailboxes because they provide easy access to government identification, credit card bills, and any other documents that contain sensitive information. A private mailbox eliminates this risk entirely.
Mail theft is a growing problem in the U.S., and home delivery services often leave your packages extremely vulnerable. A private mailbox, on the other hand, ensures that your package is received, signed for, and safely stored until your arrival.
In addition to their benefits for private residents, private mailboxes are important security assets for home business owners. Publishing your home address as your business address can lead to disgruntled customers knocking on your door or entice thieves to target your home. A private mailbox allows you to keep your home address secure while storing your business mail in a secure building.
If you’ve ever used a P.O. Box, you understand that their services are limited and often frustrating. Many retailers won’t even deliver to P.O. Boxes. Renting a private mailbox means you’re renting an address that has a physical location. That means every delivery will be made to your mailbox with no concerns about your mail or package not being eligible for delivery.
In fact, a private mailbox at AIM Mail Center will hold your mail for as long as you’d like. It will be safe and secure for pickup when it’s convenient for you. You can also take advantage of extended hours when compared to the limited business hours of your local post office.
Boost Professional Credibility
Renting a private mailbox offers yet another advantage for business owners. If you’re looking to expand your business into new markets, or you want a more prestigious address in your home service area, a private mailbox can give you a boost in credibility. A private mailbox with AIM Mail Center gives you a street address, which presents a more professional appearance than a P.O. Box or home address.
If peace of mind, stability, and reliability are among your top priorities, renting a private mailbox can deliver on all accounts. Contact or visit the AIM Mail Center in your area for options on mailbox sizes, and secure your mail today.
