We offered a business address with mail forwarding in the centre of Manchester for 20 years but have reached the difficult decision not to accept new customers for this service. The enquiries over the past year or so were from people who wanted post and parcels to be signed for, occasional meeting room rental, letters to be scanned and emailed, or just a very cheap service. None of these requirements were a good fit with what we could offer and the enquiries were just a distraction to our core telephone call handling business.
If you are looking for a mail forwarding service please consider the following:
Do you want post forwarded to you or opened, scanned and emailed?
Will you have some items that need to be signed for, such as registered post?
Are you likely to get parcels, perhaps items being returned from your customers?
Do you need the occasional meeting room or foyer to meet customers?
Be prepared to provide proof of address and proof of identity for the key people in your business. Mail forwarding services have to comply with Anti Money Laundering Regulations and you will need to provide this information to your provider.
Hopefully this list will help you find a suitable service in the right location for your business. If you would like a telephone call handling service independent of the address provider please contact us to discus your requirements.
