A personal mailbox away from home can have a number of advantages for those who want their post to be safe, secure and readily available. Using a fixed address for all of your correspondence, whether that is business or personal, has many benefits and can also be simple and easy to get set up.

If you are keen on your privacy, or just worried about your post going missing, then a personal mailbox away from home is exactly what you need to put your mind at ease.

Ensure your post is safe with a personal mailbox away from home

It may be that you are living at a temporary address, a house share, or even a block of flats that does not have their own mailboxes and in which all the post is left in the hallway. It can be the case that your post goes missing, is opened by another person living there, or that you do not have permission to have post sent to your temporary address.

All of these are excellent reasons for looking into a personal mailbox away from home, as there will no longer be any worry about the safety of your post. Once your personal mailbox is set up you can use that address for all of your correspondence meaning everything will turn up to the offices of the mailbox company.

In most cases you will then be able to contact them to find out if there is post waiting for you and then go and pick it up in your own time. Keeping your post secure and private is a priority of many people nowadays, with identity theft rife and the amount of post stolen increasing every year.

With a service such as a personal mailbox you can stop chasing letters or parcels up through the postal companies to find out whether something you were expecting is just late, or has been stolen and rest assured that all of your post will be in one place for you to pick up at your convenience.

Never miss a parcel with a personal mailbox

With so many people using online retailers to buy their goods nowadays, it is inevitable that you will have parcels being sent to your address. For those that are never in for the postman, this could involve receiving a card through your door letting you know that you have to drive to the depot to then pick those parcels up, normally during working hours which is hardly convenient.

With a personal mailbox away from home, you can have all of your post and parcels sent to one address where someone will always be there to sign for them. Then, you have 24 hour access to that place to be able to pick up what is yours whenever you have the time. This service is extremely handy around Christmas time as there is a chance you will be having a lot of items delivered to your home which you may not be in to sign for.

Instead of risking a note on the door saying ‘Leave in shed’ or something similar, which will give thieves an excellent idea of where to get their hands on your post, you can have everything sent to a completely secure address and then collect it whenever is convenient for you.

A personal mailbox away from home is perfect for anybody who is worried about their post going missing, those who have a temporary address or even those who are never in for the postman.

Never again will there be the worry of parcels that have been stolen, birthday cards that have been looted, personal details being taken from credit card bills or having to ask the postman to hide your deliveries somewhere in your garden.

There are many benefits to having a personal mailbox other than those that have been listed, such as protecting your privacy by not having to give out your home address as well as having round the clock access to being able to pick your post up when it suits you.
