There are many opportunities to work with and operate your physical mail remotely in Chicago. For example, you can use the old-fashioned services of subscriber boxes provided by the USPS or mail forwarding services. But for today, these options are somewhat outdated. In my opinion, the best option is to create a virtual mailbox through the Anytime Mailbox service. Let’s talk about how it works in more detail.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL MAILBOX?
A Virtual Mailbox is a service that provides you with an actual address that you can use to receive mail. The correspondence you receive is processed according to your wishes. Mail gets scanned by service employees, and you can then read it on your laptop or smartphone. Unwanted mails and spam are filtered, and you do not clutter your real mailbox with them. All these options (and more) are available in Anytime Mailbox at a fairly reasonable price (usually around ten dollars a month).
ADVANTAGES OF ANYTIME MAILBOX
There are lots of locations that you can choose for an address (so it is not necessary to acquire an address in Chicago)
There are enough good reviews about Anytime Mailbox on blogs, ratings, review websites, etc.
If you need a local address in Chicago, there are seven addresses to choose from + several locations in the suburbs
You can even choose an address outside the USA if it’s necessary for your online business, for example
There is a convenient application for iOS/Android smartphones, but you can also use the service through a web browser
A large range of tariffs and additional options. You can choose the most advantageous combination, depending on the monthly volume of your letters.
WHAT IS NECESSARY TO ACQUIRE A MAILBOX IN ANYTIME MAILBOX?
The process is generally simple. To register, you will have to confirm the service has the right to manage your mail. You can do this with the help of online notaries. It is a standard procedure using the USPS Form 1583. It is also available for non-residents of the USA, so you can acquire a mailbox in the USA while in another country. After going through the procedure with a notary, you will only have to decide on the address, the tariff and then pay for the subscription!
