Every business needs to receive postal mail, but with so many being based in a residence, planning to frequently relocate as they expand, or not even having a physical office in the same city as their customers, many seek a remote address solution such as a private mailbox service, mail forwarding service or an executive suite
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 18, 2008
Earth Class Mail Corp., the global leader in delivering postal mail online, announced today the immediate availability of three new prestigious street addresses where businesses can establish a remote physical presence for receiving their postal mail and packages. Virtual businesses, e-commerce retailers, publishers, professional services providers and a wide variety of other customers in need of a physical address can now select premium addresses on New York's Park Avenue, San Francisco's Market Street, or West Hollywood's Santa Monica Boulevard as their own.
Earth Class Mail currently operates a network of 23 addresses in 18 major US cities, typically used by consumers and small businesses as their mail receiving addresses. (The company's enterprise, government, and military customers typically have their mail collected at their existing post office branches and brought to a nearby Earth Class Mail processing facility, although many also use these addresses for select mail streams). Of the 23 locations, 18 are PO Box addresses, which have certain limitations but offer a very low-cost solution to customers - starting at a $9.95-per-month bundled-service rate that includes scanning of those pieces of mail that customers would like to receive electronically.
The five street addresses - the original Beaverton, Ore., and Seattle, Wash., addresses, plus now the newly added "prestige" addresses in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles - provide customers the option of a high-profile image, and can also be used to receive parcels from major carriers like UPS, FedEx and DHL (PO Boxes cannot receive parcels from carriers other than the United States Postal Service). Physical street addresses are also sometimes required for legal purposes, such as for a Corporate Registered Agent address or when applying for certain types of financial loans.
"Every business needs to receive postal mail, but with so many being based in a residence, planning to frequently relocate as they expand, or not even having a physical office in the same city as their customers, many seek a remote address solution such as a private mailbox service, mail forwarding service or an executive suite," said Ron Wiener, CEO and Postmaster General of Earth Class Mail. "These other solutions are either too costly or too inconvenient for many businesspeople, especially for those who are unable to drive every day to pick up their mail. Even for customers who are in the same city, many perceive their time, and fuel, to be too valuable to waste on driving somewhere to get their mail every day. The advantage of our service is that driving is never required because we can confidentially scan the mail for secure electronic delivery, or even forward-ship physical items to any address in the world."
Delivering postal mail online lets people access all communications remotely, as they do email, fax, voicemail, and cellular calls. The service helps reduce or eliminate unnecessary trips to office headquarters simply to pick up, often unwanted, paper mail. Earth Class Mail's solution is convenient, efficient, and environmentally beneficial, helping to reduce carbon emissions and increasing recycling by 400% compared to the national average.
