Six reasons for renting a mailbox in 95762
1. Mail & Package Security
A Mail Center (similar to a U.S. Post Office's PO Box area) is inside a building, behind a door that is locked from the outside. Mailboxes are only accessible to named users who have a key. Secure 24/7 lobby access means that mail can be picked up at any time.
Residential mail is often delivered to an unlocked mailbox outside a home. Mail delivered to a mailbox in a Mail Center has two layers of security — the building entrance and the mailbox itself.
Package theft can be avoided by having packages delivered to a Mail Center rather than being left outside the front door of a home. Your packages can be picked up during office hours.
2. A Published Street Address
Unlike the local USPS in El Dorado Hills, a Mail Center mailbox at GoldKey allows for a street address to be published. For businesses, this conveys a more professional image.
Shippers such as UPS, FedEx, and DHL are able to deliver to a street address. This can include wine club shipments that can in turn be stored in the same facility.
3. Fast Delivery
Mail typically gets delivered faster to a Mail Center than to a residential or business address. There is no waiting for a letter carrier to drop mail off at your home or office. New mail is usually available before 12pm.
Another reason people rent a mailbox is to protect their privacy. There are situations in which you may not want people to know where you live. By renting a mailbox, you get a separate mailing address that can be used for selected contacts and transactions.
A common example of mailbox rental usage is for receiving rent on real estate properties from your tenants. There are good reasons for not wanting your tenants to know where you live.
5. Affordable Prices
Mailbox fees are affordable. Our El Dorado Hills Mail Center mailboxes are priced as follows, with a one year contract:
Small - $18 per month
Medium - $24 per month
Large - $30 per month
6. A Permanent El Dorado Hills Mailing Address
A mailbox is a great option for people or businesses that periodically relocate within an area.
If you’ve ever relocated, you know the pain you have to go through changing mailing addresses for bills, bank statements, and subscriptions.
You need to update information with the IRS, the FTB, and other government agencies. You also have to notify friends, family members, vendors, and customers about your new address. It’s easy to miss updating an important person or service.
A mailbox rental gives you the convenience of not having to change your mailing address every time you move or your business moves.
GoldKey's Mail Center is conveniently located a mile from El Dorado Hills Town Center. There is easy in & out access to parking.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between a mail center mailbox and a post office box?
Unlike a traditional post office box, a mail center mailbox allows for a street address to be published. Package delivery companies are able to deliver to a street address. This means that boxed shipments can be signed for and held by mail center staff.
Will Amazon deliver to a private mailbox?
Yes. Unlike a USPS PO Box, you can receive orders from Amazon at your private mailbox. Amazon typically ships packages via UPS, which will not deliver to a USPS PO Box. Mail centers, on the other hand, can receive packages from any major delivery service such as UPS, FedEx, DHS, and others.
Can I use a mail center mailbox as my permanent address?
Yes. Your mail center mailbox address can be used as your permanent mailing address, but not your physical address (because you don’t actually live in the mail center). This is a helpful option for people who frequently move or want to separate their home address from their business address.
Are private mailboxes secure?
A private mailbox, or mail center mailbox, is typically inside a building, behind a door that is locked from the outside. Mailboxes are only accessible to named users who have a key. Secure 24/7 lobby access means that mail can be picked up at any time.
In many cases, a mail center is more secure than using your residential mailbox. Most residential mail is delivered to an unlocked mailbox outside a home. Mail delivered to a mailbox in a mail center has two layers of security: the building entrance and the mailbox itself.
