In today’s world of global business transactions, establishing a local business presence in foreign countries is becoming more and more a commonplace. Whilst logistically this seems like a big task – office space, local staff, local infrastructure to name but a few considerations that spring to mind, it’s actually quite simple in practice.
Unless you require a physical 'bricks and mortar' establishment (because your business model consists of walk in customers and clients) one highly effective way to conduct business is to utilize the services of a commercial mail receiving agency (CMRA). We are a CRMA and can help provide your company that professional business address it would need. Us CRMAs are also known as a mail drop service, and us good CMRAs can provide a number of additional services for offshore and local clients including provision of local mailbox locations which acts as a business address for receiving and sending mail, parcels and various other documents. CMRAs also function independently of official postal systems, which means they can send and receive courier drop offs and other items not generally carried by those postal services. Basically our services go further than the limitations of present couriers.
Companies and businesses adopt this business strategy for many varied reasons. It may be because people in a particular country or state prefer to deal locally, making the acquisition of a local business address pretty much a mandatory part of establishing a successful business presence there. Or it may be that a neighboring country or state has a more ‘up-market’ image and so a business address there is seen as being advantageous to the business.
Home-based businesses may also prefer to keep their physical location private by having their business address elsewhere. In some cases it may also come right down to simple economics especially for companies that do a lot of mail outs – postage rates are a lot cheaper in some countries but in order to take advantage of those rates the business needs to have a return address in that country.
If you’re looking for a mail drop service we can help with a complete range of postal, electronic mail, and telecommunication options.

• Individuals signing up as a business entity, subcontractor, or for use other than typical use for a mailbox must adhere to any changes, rates, fees, and updates applicable. Changes may occur and take in effect immediately. Space rental rates are typically higher than mailbox rental rates.
• Your monthly mailbox rate as specified in relation to its dimensions and size as described may incur additional charges if in fact your usage goes beyond its parameters. Using our floor as storage, excessive mail and parcel holding or handling, or mail and parcels outside of its designated dimensions will result in additional charges of which you will be charged and invoiced separate. Late payments will result in late fees as well as your mailbox blocked until payment is received in full. Subleasing is not permissible. For any "mail services" requests and rates please contact us. Your mailbox is only to be used for yourself and up to 5 members of the same household.
• New rate changes, terms, and increases may occur and occur naturally as with any business and should not be taken personal. Customers will be notified via email or in person in advance. Aggressive, hostile, or belligerent behaviors regarding our notifications of any changes is not tolerated and may result in immediate termination of your mailbox of which we do not provide any proration or refunds of services. Also 24 hour access IS revocable. As a courtesy we currently continue to provide 24 hour access, however during a global pandemic, any maintenance, or any other natural interference our 24 hours services will be limited. Also, some instances can cause termination or revocation of this access. All contracts state clearly that rates are for your mailbox NOT excessive parcels, handling, storing, etc. We have made exceptions in the past and no longer provide these free services due to increasing volume. Cancellations are to be done in writing and acts as a 30-day notice to vacate the mailbox. Keys are due within the 30 day time frame or customer is responsible for a lost key fee.
• Monthly mailbox rates do not include space usage! Mailbox rates are exclusively for the chosen mailbox and its perspective dimensions. If you have a parcel(s) larger than your mailbox dimensions we will put it in ONE of our available larger mailboxes (dimensions 16x11x9.5) and place that key in your mailbox to retrieve that parcel(s). Excessive services as described will result in fees. Unfortunately due to growth and expansion of Amazon and increasing parcels received daily by our store we no longer provide any free services nor do we provide 8 free parcels. Postal stores have yet to find means to combat the exponential increase and growth in parcel handling therefore customers must incur the costs for the increased services. Our store was the last to make the change which allowed our customers extended free services.
• If your parcel cannot fit in our largest mailbox it is considered oversize and we do charge for storing, handling, holding, labor, and services associated. Mailbox holders receiving oversize parcel(s) that fall outside of the dimensions of the ONE available larger “after hours” mailbox must pay $2 or more per depending on size and storage length. Please note, if you have 40 small parcels that come in and any cannot fit in the “after hours” mailbox that parcel counts as 1 oversize also. Again, excessive parcel handling comes at a charge.
• The largest package we allow in our store is 25x25x25 no heavier than 25lbs. Please let us know in advance if something greater than this size will be incoming. Packages this size must be picked up the same day and we must be notified in advance to accommodate otherwise this package may be refused.
• Drop offs requires a service. We no longer provide free drop offs. $1 or more per parcel dropped.
