The Evolution Of The Mailbox

Businesses both big and small have always made use of mailboxes to handle a large influx of mail, but the way in which some of them do it today is a good bit different from how it used to be. Back in the day, if you wanted to rent a mailbox you had to go to the post office, or some other establishment that handled mail, and sign up for a box. You would be given a key that would then grant you access to your box, assuming of course that you were able to show up at a time when the place your mailbox was located was still open.

The way in which the world now operates has deemed that process to be more than just a little archaic. Mail has gone digital and globalization means that business owners need to be able to access their deliveries as quickly and effectively as possible. That has led to a new breed of mailbox services, which go far beyond the simple box and key setup from a few years ago. It is now even possible to get all your mail sent to you without you ever having to even think about trying to find the time to get to the box.

The Network Hub allows you to rent a mailbox for a small monthly fee, but rather than going the P.O. box route, they provide you with a physical address that is just far more professional. They also have a receptionist on staff who will cheerfully greet the carrier dropping off your mail, as well as any clients that may show up unannounced at the address. This is a perfect scenario for the growing number of people who operate a business out of their own home, and who would rather have their personal and business mail kept separate.

There are a couple of different options available, both of which still come with the receptionist as part of the deal. You can swing by the physical address and pick up your own mail, or you can have it forwarded to your home once a week. One thing that should be noted, especially for those that believe the pick-up system is antiquated, is that you will be notified by e-mail whenever you have mail waiting for you. That can save a lot of wasted trips to the mailbox, only to find that it is sitting empty.

There have always been a number of good reasons to make the switch to a mailbox, but now The Network Hub gives you a few more. You need to think of the service they provide as more like having a personal assistant at your disposal than just a plain old slot where mail gets stuck. There are altogether to many more things to concern yourself with when running a business than just incoming mail. Rent a mailbox using this type of service and it’s just one less thing to worry about in your daily schedule.
