Use of Address
Until you complete the identification and review process your mailbox IS NOT approved or active and MAY NOT receive mail or packages. Do not use your selected mailbox address until approved by Postmarked & Co. Once approved you will receive a notification indicating your mailbox is ready for use. Regulations require us to return mail & packages as undeliverable if you are not an active mailbox subscriber.
Please be sure that all items are addressed appropriately by using the address format provided below. We are unable to deliver mail or packages that are not addressed correctly.
Line 1: Your Name and/or Your Company Name (name must match your USPS 1583 form)
Line 2: Virtual Mailbox Street Address (provided at signup)
Line 3: City, State & ZIP (provided at signup)
Item Delivery and Processing Turnaround
We are dependent on commercial carriers such as the United States Postal Service, UPS, FedEx, etc. to deliver your items to us in a timely manner. Until a mail or package item reaches us, we have no control over items in transit or delivery dates and are not responsible for delivery delays. Mail and packages are delivered to us daily Monday through Saturday (excluding Postmarked & Co. company and Federal holidays).
We make every effort to process your item, or other requests such as scanning, forwarding, or shredding, within one business day. While your requests will typically be completed within this timeframe, we make no guarantee or warranty that such requests will be completed within this timeframe.
Once mail has arrived in your mailbox you can schedule an in person pick up or have it opened & scanned, forwarded, recycled, or securely shredded. Scanning is our most popular request – once opened and scanned you receive an image of all contents from inside the mail item. The item is then returned to your mailbox until you give us further instructions such as forward or shred. If you choose to have mail forwarded to you, shipping and handling fees apply.
Forwarding of Items
Items requested to be forwarded may be sent anywhere in the world and are typically sent by one of our preferred carriers, FedEx or UPS, with tracking enabled. To avoid fraudulent activity packages must be addressed to a mailbox recipient on file. Shipping charges are charged to your card on file at the time of shipping and are non-refundable. We reserve the right to require a minimum fee when charging your card.
Your mailbox plan comes with specific usage limits for number of incoming items, number of days items can be stored, etc. Each plan differs on the limits or usage fees charged so be sure to fully review your plan to make sure you understand when fees apply. If you would like a plan review or would like us to help explain all of the details of your plan, please reach out to us using the help information section below.
