Default UPS Store Mailbox

Hi,

I opened a UPS store mailbox under my name. Can I receive mail for another person using the same mailbox with the same last name?

Please share your experience.

thanks so much

If you don't plan on receiving anything, you should be fine. If you plan on receiving stuff, send yourself a large envelope or small box (that won't fit into the mailbox) using your "stealth" name and see what they say when you go to pick it up. Give them an excuse that it's for your girlfriend/roommate. They may require other users of the box to provide ID.

be careful using UPS store mailboxes.

i work there and apparently you are not legally allowed to get one and list it as your HOME ADDRESS for say, ebay or paypal, or anything else. they are not supposed to be used for business purposes either.

im sure people do this anyways and get away with it just fine but i am just stating the facts here.

apparently some people have opened up the ups boxes for insurance fraud so you can no longer use a ups box as your "home address" so be careful!

Wouldn't it make more sense to ask the UPS Store where you have the mailbox for the answer?

Thanks for all the answers.

I tried to send something there using my "stealth" name.

They wouldn't let me pick it up. They said "name not in mailbox". Therefore, I'm not authorized to receive it, and they return to sender.

The UPS Store is very strict about their mailboxes. They want two form of ID's for all mail recipient name under the box.

myIonU open it in your real name. Sit and wait for all the junk mail and collection notices in other people's names to come.

As long as you don't have to sign it or go to a counter to pick it up, then nobody will do anything.

Since UPS Stores are independently owned and operated, what you get away with at one store might not apply to another.

According to the UPS Store website anybody else besides yourself you add to your box MUST provide 2 forms of I.D.

There are many alternative such as the mail drop locations..some even upload your letters online, with the option to shred it or foward it.

myIonU, so you get letters to other names fine, it's just package returns? If it's just package returns, why don't you just completely leave off the name entirely?

While UPS Stores have their policy, you can butter up to individual owners and literally explain that post will come in other names.
