2. Security

When you have a private mailbox rental, your packages and mail are kept safe until you have to pick them up. If you'll be away for the day, you don't have to worry about a package being left by your front door. Also, private mailbox service continues to receive your mail when you're away on business or vacation. That means no more putting a hold on your mail or having it pile up in your mailbox while you're gone.

3. Reliability

With a private mailbox rental someone is always there to receive important letters or packages.

4. Convenience

A private mailbox service will notify you when there is mail in your personal mailbox. Now you don't have to waste trips going to the post office to see if you've received mail.

5. Full-Service Package Receiving

The U.S. Postal Service doesn't receive pages from other carriers like FedEx or UPS. A private mailbox service can receive services from all carriers. Most mailbox service providers will even notify you when a package arrives so you can pick it up when it's convenient for you.

6. Mobility

You can move around but your mail will always go to the same place. This is helpful if you move from one area of Basking Ridge to another (no change of address forms to fill out) or you can go between residences during the year. Most personal mailbox services will even forward your mail if you'll be out of town for an extended period of time.

7. Rent A Mailbox With A Street Address

In some instances, a street address may be more of an advantage than having a P.O. box. When you rent a personal mailbox with a PMB mailbox provider, you use their street address plus a "#" sign for your box number (e.g. 123 Main Street #(your mailbox number here)).
