How many of you use P.O. Boxes? And how much do they cost? What are the benefits? THANKS
i have a p.o. box. i like it bc of security. nobody needs to know where i live or i keep my equipment. also i dont want a PITA customer coming over and causing problems
How much does it cost?
We have a P.O. box I thought it was like $70.00 for 6 months
We have 6 Duplex' s a four unit apartment and an older two flat that we own and rent .
So for the safety and security it is a must !
So we use it for the lawn accounts also
I just got my renewal the other day. I don't feel like walking upstairs to grab it, but I think it was $70 or $72 for the year. It was something like $40 for 6 months.
Most of my customers are minimum 1/2 hour from my shop, and some are an Hour away. The PO box makes it look like i'm a "local." I also like the ease of doing Postage Paid return postcards and such. BTW- That i know is $160 a year for the BRC (Business Reply Card) Permit.
Mine is $24 for 6 months. Not a large box, just big enough to hold magazines and the "Your postbox is full" card. I agree with the issue about security, especially with checks being mailed to me. My house mailbox doesn't get half of the mail it should. I am constantly getting my neighbors mail and vice versa. And this is almost on a daily basis. I have complained numerous times, but to no avail.
I think having a P.O. Box helps seperate everything and can reduce some junk mail but not all
I have a PO Box, I like it because my customers don't need to know where I live, I don't want them to come knocking asking me to do this or that. I run my business out of my house so it doesn't matter. Mine cost $26.oo yr. Just big enough to hold payments, bills, and magazines.
How does one do the paid return cards?
were actually looking into one right now dont want them sent home anymore
