UPS offers a mailbox service that’s similar to a USPS PO box, although there are a few key differences.
A UPS mailbox provides the benefit of a real, physical address. You UPS mailbox address will be the actual address of the store where you signed up for you box with the letters “PMB” or a pound sign denoting your mailbox number, like this:
PMB 1353 [or #1353]
4576 Main Street
Cityville, NY 12345
UPS Mailbox Rental Prices
Since UPS stores are individually owned and operated franchises, rental costs will vary. To get an exact amount, you’ll need to use the UPS store locator to find and contact a location in your area.
However, the following figures can be used as a general guideline:
Small Box (Individuals)
Medium Box (Individuals or Small Business)
Large Box (Small to Medium Businesses)
Mailbox rentals are available in 3, 6, or 12-month terms. Many UPS stores offer a discount if you purchase a longer term.
Deposits and Fees
Most UPS stores charge a non-refundable fee of around $10-$15 per key.
Many locations will also charge you an “overflow fee” of $3.00 or more if you allow excessive amounts of mail to pile up in your box. You may also be charged if you leave large packages at the store for too long before picking them up.
