Mail Service in Florida - moondancer5 - 08-25-2017

Can anyone recommend a good mail service in Florida. I am domiciled in Fl but want to travel but still have a Florida address.

Myrvmail.com

It is a part of goodsam

I really like this. They post online the mail. I can ask for any piece to be opened and scanned...often saving me the postage as I only need to know what it says.

Mailing stuff to me is quick. No delays.

I really like this service. The previous service was the same basic cost, but none of this service.

I've been using St Brendan's Isle for about a year now and everything has been great.

The outside of every piece of mail is scanned and I get an email alert that it arrived. I can have it shredded, scanned, or mailed to me.

I ran into a problem with MyRVMail........

When I tried to insure the van at that address, the computer kicked it out and denied me a policy. Apparently there is now a database that contains all of the "mail service" addresses and flags them. Probably because of the Real ID Act.

Yes, you often need a relative or friendly campsite to act as your "permanent phyical" address.

But they don't need to deal with your mail.

I've had no problem with using this address. My insurance as well as everything else has been just fine.

I have GEICO and Nationwide. Both are just fine with this.

ST. Brendon's refused me. Before I had this RV...the said that I had to have a registered RV before they would allow me their mail service. Just having a van was not enough for them. They want proof you are really a nomad...simply a van wasn't good enough.

  ... they give mail service to anyone, no need for an RV, boat, etc. - many traveling nurses use this service -

I did a two part process for my Florida residency

first: I found a real brick and mortar address (friend or just a month by month room rental). I then gathered up all my docs to go to DMV to get my drivers license at the residence address (you have lots of options for proof of address. I used a letter from my bank and copy of my month by month lease). once you have your drivers license in hand you can sign up with the mail services. I've used two for florida: MyTravelingMailbox and FirstClassMail. both offer scanning and online viewing of scans which is perfect for me. prices are similar for both. 

second: after I have signed up for the service, I then request a change of address with the DMV to the new mailbox service. I get my new drivers license delivered to the mail service and have them forward it to me wherever I am at the time. 

I can file taxes and all other addresses with the mail services. 

my point is I don't believe it is possible to establish your address initially at a mail service, but you can do a change of address to a mail service and then use it.
