How do I set up a mailing address /virtual office presence in the USA


My company needs to have a US address for getting insurance and other services from US providers, despite us being based abroad (in Canada).

Can anyone suggest a good provider of an inbound mailing address (e.g. virtual office services, or mail scanners/forwarders)? We need it to be both reasonable in cost and very reliable - good enough for business/legal correspondence, not just for telephone bills.

Hopefully I'm not the first one to have faced this, and perhaps others can benefit from the answers too!

I researched this topic about a year ago. If you can visit US, I believe you can set up a mailing address with UPS (complete with a street address, not just a PO box). Then there are "virtual office" providers such as Regus who provide a more "full-service" solution. Then there is EarthClassMail, they have a couple of addresses you can use, too.

  • Yes, you can get a PO box set up if you visit a post office in the US, but that only helps if you can regularly come there and pick up your mail. – Michael 14 years ago
  • Not sure who UPC is, google doesn't give any useful hits. – Michael 14 years ago
  • Oops I meant UPS, UPC is actually a cable TV company here in Europe – Tomas Kohl 14 years ago
