Yes.

I used My Home Address in SD and when traveling you can have them hold your mail until you call and give them your current location.

I did a 2 week interval, but you can do any interval you want as you pay for each mailing.

With the archaic practices of government, some insurance companies, and others I have dealt with, sadly yes. The US postal service is still necessary.

Yes you can, no problem. We have been with Alternative Resources since 2002, excellent service.

My qusetion is why do you need mail every 2 weeks? With auto bill pay we manage to need mail maybe twice a month and could probably get by with once a month.

Every two weeks IS roughly twice a month, but I suspect you are correct about the one a month scenario.

Yep, there are still times you need to rely on the Post Office. Many insurance companies, such as health insurance will send you the first bill via mail, after that you can setup on-line payment. But agree, unless you're expecting something important approx once a month is fine. You just have to see what fits your life style.

I chose Americas Mailbox located in Box Elder close to Rapid City.They also have a Rv Park in the back of the office.
I have a account and do my mailing every 2 weeks,as you move you can log into your account and make changes to your mailing address.You can also add money to your postage online.

We have been happy with them and plan to stay with them as long as we keep fulltiming.

I can attest to St. Brendan's Isle in Florida. Outstanding service.

We are using the Escapees Mail Forwarding. Reasonable and great service. Just send them an email on where you want the mail sent for the week. If we are going to be near Livingston, TX, we will have them hold the mail and we pick it up.

Do they include the junk mail, paper type ad's and well Junk? That will increase the cost of shipping won't it? I was thinking of asking the neighbor if he will get the daily mail and then he can mail it to me once a month or whenever with out all the junk mail. I mow his yard all summer. Barter system. For those that still have a S&B's and neighbors willing anyhow.

They will forward various classes of mail according to your instructions.

I did not have junk mail forwarded.
