Send a test mail using MM's variation above to see if it arrives into your PO Box.

Some Post Offices don't allow the use of street names, while some do.

Just need to experiment to find out.

I agree with the other members about using the street address and the #. Some post offices allow it other aren't fond at all about it. But if you are just trying to throw it off. This is what I use to do. I had 4 variations. Mostly for plugging in on the return shipping address.


Postal Box 2934, Va beach, Va - 23450

Post Office Box 2934, Va beach, Va - 23450

Postal Mail Box 2934, Va beach, Va - 23450

Bring this form into the post office where you rent your box and you should be fine:

Ok. So I tried to make the return address that P.o box and it forced me to use this address. Will this work?.


501 Viking Dr
Unit 8061
virginia beach VA 23450-1249
United States

It won't let me change it to what I want to for my default address.

I have used "Unit" in place of box and it has worked fine for me.

Unit should work, if you rent a box at a Mom and Pa place they don't care about the way it's configured.

Get the street address of the office and use the pob number as a suite or B.

I've had customers try this style of address "work around". They get rather nasty when the parcel comes back "return to sender - incorrect address".

My advice - TRY IT FIRST!!! It does not cost much to send yourself a letter...
