  • Business mail redirection, for switching offices

Most businesses will switch offices at some point in their lives; it’s an inevitability. Whether you’re scaling up or scaling down, sometimes you just need a new space! This in mind, please don’t forget to take your mail with you. I’ve seen this happen so many times, in the business world and the personal world. People move houses, and forget to change their addresses for things like their phone bill.

Luckily, it’s easier for companies. Whatever country you’re located in, your mail provider will offer you a business mail redirection. You can even redirect internationally! Simply put, this will redirect all your mail from your previous location to your current location, without any hassle. You’ll take a worry off your mind, and you won’t miss any letters to boot.

  • Access all your mail from the cloud

Of course, sifting through reams and reams of paper and letters can become tiring. Sometimes, you just want to do it all digitally. Fortunately, you can! I’ve had companies scan my postal mail a couple of times in the past. This creates a digital copy of that mail, and sends it straight to your virtual mailbox. You can access it from anywhere at anytime! This also means that if the letter is shredded, burnt, lost or stained, you have a copy ready to go.

  • Send important correspondences to a personal address

Many companies can be in receipt of hundreds of mail items a week, and it can get slightly overwhelming. It’s important not to miss one single one, as it could be utterly vital to the future of your company.

So, in order to reduce the amount of organizing your company will have to do, consider switching some pieces of mail to a personal address. You’re at your home everyday, but you might not be at the office everyday, so this ensures you’ll see it as soon as it arrives. Also, it won’t be lost among the reams and reams of other letters your business receives.

  • Branded stationery, for better tracking

The sad reality of postal services is that some items get lost in transit. It’s quite unpredictable, but it does happen, and that means you’ll have to plan for it as best you can. So, consider investing in branded stationery and envelopes for your company.

This basically means that any letter or package sent by you will have your logo and branding all over it, so if it gets lost, it’s clear who the owner is. Not every letter or package features a return address, so take that extra precaution to ensure your mail reaches the recipient on time!
