Seattle, WA (PressExposure) May 07, 2012 -- It's not a coincidence that most people don't know of the existence of a mail forwarding service that also has scanning capabilities. After all, if you ask the post office you might be told that there's no such thing. How could you possibly view your mail online? Well, the post office might tell you that because they want you to do it the old fashioned way, but now we've found a business that can give you the other side of the story.
At http://VirtualMailCenter.com, they have found two very efficient companies that offer mail forwarding in the form of scanning the mail and placing it into your online mailbox so you can look at your postal mail from your computer. Now this is something the post office may or may not ever offer, but since they are having a hard time making money these days it may be something they should think about.
But they don't really have to. The owner of the site says you can now have a mail forwarding service for as little as $14.95 a month. And with this service, you'll also get a personal virtual mailing address to send your mail to. You can either forward all of your home mail to this address, or set it up as a separate address and begin forwarding just important items to it.
The owner of the site, Eva Baker, says that when she started looking around for this service it was originally because she wanted an address to use while she was doing business on the Internet. And, since she works at home, it was also a good idea for a business address that she didn't have to worry about traveling to in order to get her daily mail.
Eva explains: "Even though people who travel a lot are the ones who formerly used these services the most, it's not uncommon now for people who work at home to use them as a virtual address for privacy reasons. This way, strangers aren't invading their home space."
Eva also warns potential mail forwarding service customers to make sure to get all of the facts before they sign up for any service - and that can be hard when trying to compare different sites.
That's why she has compared the sites on a grid so you can see what the extra charges are for pieces of mail, scanning, and addresses in top cities. "It just makes the final decision so much easier to make and ensures that everyone is happy with the new service."
