Renting private mailboxes has become increasingly popular within the past few years. For those who don't know, a private mailbox is an addressed lockable box located on the premises of a post office and/or shipping center. Here, you can rent your own private post office box. Privately operated mailbox rental services adjust to the needs of their clients.

Well, the Pony Postal Center not only provides you with a variety of mailbox sizes, they also offer products such as packing supplies, movies, DVD rentals, drinks and snacks, as well as copying, typing, printing, packaging and shipping services.
It's clear - people want personalized service and you get that at the Pony Postal Center.
Here are a few great reasons why you should rent a private mailbox from the Pony Postal Center today:
* First, the Center is conveniently located in downtown Hagerstown and is within walking distance for many.
* Secondly, if you move frequently, due to being in the service, business, or just get tired of being in the same place for too long, then renting a private box is a good thing to have as you don't have to change your residential address every time.
* Another great reason to rent a mailbox is if you are in college at a dorm and you need a safe place to receive mail and packages.
* Everyone receives presents and cards throughout the year. Well, renting a private mailbox also helps guard against mail theft, which leads to identity theft. That's a huge plus!
* If you like to order from places like eBay and Internet stores, a mailbox rental allows you the option of not having to be home to sign for the package. There again, because what you purchased comes in the company box, you don't have to worry about the box being stolen off your porch. Of course the post office also offers mailbox rentals, however, keep in mind that they will not sign for packages or mail.
* Having a private mailbox ensures privacy. No one will know the address of where you live, as all packages and mail is sent to your private mailbox.
* You can also use your private mailbox address and suite number on your personal checks.
* A private mailbox also works wonders for business owners - especially those run out of the home. This gives your business a separate mailing identity, and you don't have to worry about clients showing up on your doorstep.
* If you're a traveler, or a retired person who likes to travel the world, then renting a private mailbox keeps your mail safe and in one location until you return for it.
* Another good thing is that you can keep the same address and suite number for years - no matter where you live.
