Private, online postal mail boxes are becoming more and more common. We’ve reviewed a few of them here before. This one is based in New Zealand, which has some advantages for many businesses. Wherever you’re located, your PrivateBox street or PO box address (your choice) is accessible online.
The service offers both mail forwarding and scanning. If they scan it, then they’ll open it, scan it, and you’ll be able to view it securely online. Originals can be flagged for forwarding to you or shredded and recycled, at your discretion.
Scanning is in full color and Private Box also offers check depositing if you have a New Zealand bank account for your business.
Rates aren’t too shabby, starting at $32.46/year for personal accounts and $77.92/year for business. Those are US Dollar conversions. Document scanning is also cheap, at about $0.13/page. NZ taxes are included in the pricing listed on their site. They also have affiliates who can get you a local New Zealand phone number with call forwarding and/or VOIP and fax.
The service is definitely something that many will want to try and it’s at a more than reasonable price.
