I don't need a phone number and answering service. Can I just get the mailing address?
Yes. Check out our regular Mailbox Rentals.

No. Only the Virtual Office Package includes phone and fax services.

Do you have conference rooms available for meetings?
No. Our location is set up as a mail center where staff receives mail and packages on your behalf.

Of course. And if you need a local phone number, our Virtual Office Package can also be tailored for personal, non-business related use.

Can I call to see if I have mail before making the trip to your location or deciding if I need mail forwarded?
Any time!

What about package receiving?
We sign for deliveries from all carriers and couriers, and keep them secured until you pick them up.

Will you let me know when my express deliveries and large packages arrive?
Our automated system will alert you via text and/or e-mail about any delivery our office staff signed for on your behalf. For regular U.S. mail deliveries, you are welcome to call and check.

Can you also forward my large packages?
Yes. Handling fees and retail shipping rates will apply.

Can I ship packages and mail letters through your office?
Yes. We are authorized to ship for FedEx, UPS, DHL, and the U.S. Postal Service. If you have your own shipping account with these carriers, you can drop-off your pre-printed label packages here too.
