Mailbox Forwarding Review by

As everything moves online, people rely on physical goods less and less everyday. Our postal service still delivers daily mail, but chances are you and most of the connected world now rely mostly on email and other online communication mechanisms. But there are still cases where physical mail is needed. Whether that be to receive packages, or even letters from some sources that haven’t adapted yet, like bills or official correspondence from the government. That’s why a new service called Mailbox Forwarding exists. This is a review of this innovative solution, and what it can do for you.

The idea behind Mailbox Forwarding is that the company provides you with a mailing address, and then scans your mail as it comes in, then shows it to you as email. It’s a bit like a PO Box system, except more convenient, because you get an actual address, and you don’t have to go and check the box, everything is shown to you on your screen. There’s no question that it’s a lot more convenient, especially if you don’t have a mailbox right at your doorstep. Every type of delivery is accepted, from normal postal service letters and packages, to UPS and FedEX. Packages are also no problem, and a description is shown to you on your interface. Everything is accessible online from the moment it’s received at your remote address.

The cost structure is reasonable at $15 per month to get your own personalized address, and the ability to receive an unlimited amount of mail, which all gets scanned by the system and can be managed online. In this web interface, you have several options as to what you want to do with the item. You can get details about it, you can have it forwarded to your home address, or get them to shred it. On top of an added convenience, it’s also more security, since you don’t have to give out your home address. Simply give this one and people can send you mail without knowing where you live. As an added feature, you even have the ability to receive faxes through a shared or dedicated line. So this is an additional bonus that the company provides.

Overall, it’s a very interesting concept. For people wanting more security, or convenience, or simply somebody who travels a lot and can’t keep the same address all the time, this can be a useful tool. Whether it’s worth $15 per month is up to each person to decide, but it’s easy to see how it might be for those who need that type of service.
