    You can also give ups permission to sign
    For your certified mail.
    They will email or text you when you get a package.
     
    Team818 Thanks this.

    UPS box usually cost per month what you can rent a similar USPS box for 6 months. Also many entities recognize the UPS address as a P.O. Box regardlees if you try to fool people by callingbthe box an apartment or suite. The UPS stores around me were not open 24/7. Some of them only allowed access to your POB during certain hours, while USPS were accessible 24/7/365

    My state requires a utility bill in your name for establishing residence. A cell phone bill does not count. It must be cable tv, internet, water/sewer, etc.

    I realize they need the bills. To change your CDL address, I have a legit Apt. I think an RV Park would work if you had to have an address, but you have to buy the RV. hahaha.. Which is going ape,there is going to be a big rush on rv's. I wish I had property, I think I would put in a RV Park, if possible. I just need them to hold my mail. 30 Days seems fine. I will see. Maybe my landlord will get it out of the box here at the Apt's and drop it inside my Apt in a cardboard box I will leave for him. I will ask. Thank you though.

    No I haven't but, but it must involve not really having an RV... I am good. I have a low cost apartment for now. I do not have a ups store, post office boz plus, etc. I will talk to the nice lady at the post office here. It might be that I have to rent a PO BOX and have it all handled that way, but I do need a actual apartment for my stuff, but thank you.

    Part of the REAL ID efforts after Sept 11 were to prevent handing out Driver's Licenses based on PO Boxes and other similar things. You can establish residency and a ton of RVers and nomads have done it.

    I am good. I have a apt situation. Just needed a better mail option. Its all good. But yes, I considered an RV life period. Might still do that in a few years. Thanks.

    My and others point about RVers IS NOT TO SUGGEST YOU BUY OR LIVE IN AN RV. We are trying to persuade you to search among people who full-time RV about the mail options that could work for you. They are the experts on the topic.
     
    CorsairFanboy and Team818 Thank this.
