P O Box vs Private Mailbox.

What is the difference between a PO box (rented at the Post Office) and a Private Mailbox (rented at a A1 Livescan NOTARY SHIPPING location)? There are several, including:

The postal mailbox is only accessible when the Post Office is open, and perhaps an hour before and/or after normal Post Office hours. The Private Mailbox is generally accessible 24 hours a day – you get a key to the front door to come and go as you please (in most cases)!

The PO Box cannot accept any parcels on your behalf. If you receive an overnight letter via UPS,FedEx, DHL the Post Office cannot sign on your behalf and hold the letter for you; therefore, most common carriers will not accept for shipment any packages addressed to PO Boxes.

A1 Livescan NOTARY SHIPPING can act as your Commercial Mail Receiving Agent and can accept parcels on your behalf. The staff will sign for your parcel(s) and then notify you that the parcel is available for pickup. They will usually ask that you sign a log to indicated receipt of the parcel from the store.

A PO Box address is just that – a PO Box. When you rent a Private Mailbox, you get a real street address. You can actually operate a business right out of the store because you have a real street address.


PO Box vs Private Mailbox for Your Home Business

When you’re starting out with your home business, chances are you do not want to use your home address as your main business address. There are several reasons for using a different address:

  1. Privacy
  2. Email newsletter compliance (CAN-Spam)
  3. Professionalism with a business address
  4. A place to accept business mail/packages

Overall, privacy is probably the primary concern for most home business owners. Fortunately, you can have a separate business address through the renting of a post office box or a private mailbox. There are advantages to renting a private mailbox over a PO Box.


In general, a PO Box is usually less expensive than a PMB (private mailbox.) Typical rates can range from $120 – $140 a year depending on the size of the box. A PMB can be more expensive with rates as high as $170 a year or more.


You can get regular mail, magazines, etc., at either mailbox, however, if you’re wanting to get bigger packages you may be out of luck with a po boxes rental. Some places cannot ship to post office boxes and the post office will not accept very large packages the way a private mailbox can.

The advantages of a PMB can include:

  • Having an actual street address (looks more professional)
  • Mail forwarding
  • Accepts packages from UPS, FedEx,DHL, etc.
  • Phone-In mail check
  • Usually more availability to get a mailbox

Either one you choose will most likely be a business expense and can be a tax write-off. However, you are best to consult with your accountant
