Have you considered Escapees? They provide a unique street address, and do mail forwarding, and such.

I know that doesn't answer your question. Just wondering because I am considering using them and interested to hear opinions.

PMB is a POSTAL MAIL BOX.

In my instance, for insurance purposes, I use the street address of the PMB provider minus the mail box. The PMB people know who you are and what box belongs to you.

Actually, PMB = Private Mail Box.

You are supposed to use "PMB" before the box number, but you can use "#" or "Apt" instead. You'll still get the mail.

not right...not all misaddressed mail is delivered


you just don't know its been returned


you aren't notified when your mail is returned because of a bad address


that's what "address service" is...

you HAVE to remember that bad addressed mail is not yours...it belongs to the person that applied the postage


its not your till its in your box...then its "private property" with $0 value

Some PMBs are big enough companies to have a zip code all to themselves...so the zip code alone can identify users of PMBs, even if the number is not used.

And there are databases that identify street addresses as either commercial or residential. So using a PMB street addess, which will be identified as commercial, doesn't always fly as a residential address. Banks are starting to get picky about that.
