Mailboxes (Currently not accepting applications)
When you open a private mailbox at Tran Postal Central LLC you get much more than a "PO Box." For the home-based businesses, a private mailbox provides you with a street address that allows you to have a business address without having to use your residential one. Also, our mailboxes offer security and reassurance when receiving items with personal information.
A private mailbox permits you to receive deliveries from ALL carriers, neither of which can deliver to a post office box at a USPS facility. Rental agreements are 3, 6 and 12-month commitments. There is a refundable $8 key deposit.
Rates for Mailboxes Will Increase Beginning in 2015
