Small-Business Private Mailbox Rentals Protect Privacy

Aside

I did financial planning out of my personal home office for years. I quickly realized I needed a mailing address other than my home for several reasons.

I managed client’s money and insurance. I needed a place to receive my mail where sensitive documents could be sent, and received, safely until I could pick them up.  A place where they wouldn’t be stolen. And a place where my client’s highly sensitive papers would not be put on a doorstop for anyone to take or read.  So, I opened a private mailbox in my area.

Further, after reading news stories about angry customers entering places of business, and violently lashing out at owners and employees, I decided I did not want potentially disgruntled investors knocking on my door. The vision of my young child opening the door for such a person was not a pretty image!

As time went by, I became aware of the various Federal and local privacy laws. They became a big deal, and were multiplying like rabbits. I read where an insurance agency converted all there paper records into electronic records. They dumped the paper into a trash can outside their place of business. They were then turned into the Federal authorities by a neighbor. The government prosecuted the agency owner, and sent them  to jail. The agency owner lost the agency and a relative he bought it from never got paid on the note from the sale. Tragic all the way around.

I am not an attorney, but I think it likely that receiving sensitive papers on your door step might violate one or more of these laws. Maybe it is better to open a private mailbox. Check with your legal council, or better yet, go rent a private mailbox today!

Bottom line, I earnestly believe that all home based businesses should rent a private mailbox to protect their loved ones and their clients privacy.

UPS Saturday Pick Up and Delivery in Superior Colorado 80027

The UPS Store 5183 in Superior Colorado

We are experiencing wonderful new changes with UPS through the UPS Store. It used to be that you paid extra for Saturday delivery. And to get things delivered on Monday, through UPS, required next day delivery service. And instead of a late-in-the-day pick-up, you had to have the pick up earlier in the day on Saturday.

To see specific details about this program, and how it is being rolled out across the country, click on this UPS link to get the details straight from UPS!

One subtle point to be aware of is that the Saturday delivery is only to residences and strategic businesses like our The UPS Store 5183 in Superior Colorado, and other retail locations across the country.  The reasoning here is that many businesses are not open on Saturday and would not benefit from this new service. If your business is open on Saturday, and you would like to take advantage of Saturday delivery, check out your local The UPS Store!

Businesses can take advantage of this service on Saturday by setting up a mailbox rental at a The UPS Store like ours. We receive the packages for you on Saturday and email a delivery confirmation to you notifying your package is in. Just make arrangements to drop by before we close and you can participate in Saturday delivery.

If you don’t want to rent a mailbox, no sweat. You can set up a “Package Only” service with no monthly rental. We still email you a delivery notice. We then hold your package for you. Just bring in your ID, and pay a $5 or $10 fee for each package you pick up. If you receive 5 or more packages per month, the rental is the best option. If you get less, the Package Only option may be best; unless the packages are large and heavy.

Residences in select cities will get Saturday delivery at normal ground pricing. That is because people tend to be home on the weekends.

Another cool feature is that in select cities you can ship ground, in your own state, and it is guaranteed to be delivered to residences by end of day on Saturday instead of Monday! If UPS offers local pick up at select retail locations, like the UPS Store, on Saturdays you may still get it there on Monday by the end of day for ground pricing. Check with your The UPS Store for details.

The UPS System now offers better service and lower costs at 5,000 The UPS Stores in select cities across the US and more to come in 2018! What’s not to like. Bravo UPS and The UPS Stores!

Come see us if you live near our Superior Colorado Store. Let us help you use this new service and maybe benefit from other services you are unaware of!

Inked Rubber Stamps For Business

Time Savings for businesses

Pre-inked Stamps save you time. They allow you to do repetitive messaging quickly and legibly. For example, instead of writing “Return to Sender, Address Unknown” on letters that come to you erroneously, you can simply get a red stamp and affix this same message on letters you are returning. When you get a check you can quickly stamp “Deposit Only” only with your account number on the back of the check to make it difficult to cash other than to put it into your account at the bank. When someone presents payment at your office with an invoice you can stamp “Paid” on it.

You can personalize your correspondence with a kind of stamp emoji. Custom stamp makers, like our The UPS Store 5183, can download a picture and make a stamp for you. Or we can make happy faces, sad faces, stars and any emoji image you can think of by having you send the graphics to us for download.

Use your imagination. Look for ways to save time and money for your business. Find fun ways to spice up personal and business correspondence.

Let The UPS Store 5183 make your custom per-inked stamp today! We make them in our store in about 15 minutes. Find our web site at The UPS Store 5183.
