Many times when people go searching for a mail forwarding service they have in their mind how it was done in the old days. This is where you went to the Post Office and changed your mail address to wherever you were going to be. liteblue usps
So if you were going to be at your summer home for two months, you would forward your mail there, then when you got back, un-forward your mail. If you travel a lot you might be doing this several times a year and your mail may never catch up!
But this is a new age, and technology has advanced to the point where there is now a mail forwarding service or two that will solve all your problems. You change your Postal Address once to the address of the mail forwarding service and they do the rest. They really don’t even need to forward all that snail mail to you anymore. Here’s how it works.
After you’ve changed your address, all your mail will go to the mail forwarding service. They will first scan the envelopes of the mail received. Then you log into their site and look at the scanned envelopes to decide if you want the contents scanned or not. You’ll probably authorize shredding some of it without scanning as you will recognize it as junk mail, or business bulk mail, as the Post Office likes to call it!
Anything that you want to see you just click your mouse button and send it to the appropriate section of the mail forwarding service. The service will then scan the contents, and again put it online for you to view.
You will also have several options of what to do with the original letters. They can store them for you, or shred them; it’s your decision. Not only do you have options of what to do with the letters, but your mail forwarding service can provide you with several different addresses in different cities for you to choose from. You can choose the one closest to the city you live in, or pick one where you’ve always wanted to live. Again, the choice is yours.
