Stranded by Coronavirus? How to Get Your Postal Mail

View and Manage Your Mail from Anywhere with an iPostal1 Digital Mailbox!

March 9, 2020
For Immediate Release

Montebello, NY – Coronavirus is now a pandemic according to the WHO, threatening to strand and isolate millions away from home or the office, disrupting families and businesses to an unprecedented extent. Companies are telling employees to work from home.

Globally, over 300 million students are barred from attending school. 2,500 passengers on board the Grand Princess cruise ship could not disembark at San Francisco as planned. These numbers are growing daily, and nobody knows when the situation will abate.

With everything people must deal with under these circumstances, concerns about receiving and managing important postal mail and packages is yet another worry to add to the list.

However, people with an iPostal1 Digital Mailbox have a ready-to-go solution for this problem.

Access to and Control of Your Mail

Digital Mailbox Service

With a Digital Mailbox from iPostal1, you can view and manage your mail with an app or with your PC from anywhere in the world, 24/7.

How? iPostal1 has 3,000 mail centers across the U.S. and worldwide where you can redirect your mail and when new mail arrives, you get notified and can view an image of the outside of the letter of package on your smartphone or laptop. Then, with just a click, you can request to forward mail and packages to any address, scan mail content to view as a PDF in hours, or discard or shred unwanted mail.

You can even request to deposit a check by mail to maintain critical cash flow. This can be a lifesaver when you’re traveling or for whatever reason cannot make the trip to your office or post office box to retrieve your checks and deposit your funds.

So, whether you’re working from home or at a remote location, stranded on a cruise ship or just want to save time on a daily basis, you can redirect your personal or office mail and packages to an iPostal1 mail center near your home or office. This way, you still have access to and control of your mail no matter where you are, no matter what the circumstances.

Postal Mail Contingency Planning for Business

Many companies have developed contingency plans for workplace disruptions related to natural disasters, Internet failure or a computer breach. And now there's coronavirus. Most have not thought about contingency plans to ensure that critical postal mail or packages get to the right person and location when normal processes fail.
