How Does Mail Management Work?

mail management, mail forwardingMany virtual offices come with a mail management option, where mail is received at your professional address and you can come pick it up on your own time. If you are someone who receives a lot of mail, or even a lot of packages, there could be plenty of questions about who receives the mail and how you are notified when something arrives.

Your mail is received at the Allied Office location you select. A facility receptionist will sign for packages on your behalf, and you will be notified of its arrival via email. Mail can be collected and held at your location, in which you will have access to your private mailbox to retrieve at your convenience (no notification. Pick it up when you can). In addition, mail forwarding is available if you prefer to have your mail forwarded to an address of your choice. The cost of mail forwarding is U.S. First Class costs plus 20% of the administrative charge.

Mail management is an excellent solution for those who work from home, but don’t want use give away the home address to vendors and clients. It’s also a much better alternative than using a P.O Box since using a virtual office address looks more professional on a website and on your letterhead. If that’s all you need, it’s possible to only choose mail management as part of your virtual office services package. Mail management is also a good idea if you will be away on business for an extended period of time. Someone will be watching any packages and envelopes that come in, instead of them piling up and making it obvious you are away.

That’s how mail management works. If you’re worried about someone else handling your mail, or it getting lost at our virtual offices, then mail management should be something to consider. We place all envelopes in a private mailbox, so it’s not sitting out for someone to take, and it won’t get lost in the shuffle of all the mail that comes through the virtual office facility. You’ll also be notified of packages, or could have your mail forwarded, if you don’t want mail sitting at the virtual office. Overall, if you’re okay with someone else managing your mail, then consider it as one less thing you have to worry about.
