I was reading the blog, Tumbleweed and they mentioned a mail forwarding service in Florida they use. When we start fulltiming, we will need to change our residence back to Florida and get a mail forwarding provider.
That got me to thinking about it, so I went to the My Rv Mail website. What I found interesting is that they scan all your mail so that you can view it online anytime you want. If it’s something you deem important, they will open it for you and read it to you or scan the document. That way you can look at the envelope to determine if it’s a fancy piece of junk mail, or something important. I don’t know if this is something the other mail forwarding providers offer. It probably is…new technology and all.
I’m not really sure how much actual “good” mail we would be getting though. We subscribe to a few magazines, like Motorhome Magazine… we can’t miss that! I don’t know if most fulltimers keep their magazine subscriptions or not?
My Rv Mail’s Gold service for a year, with setup and initial postage is $217, if you have a Passport America plan. I haven’t checked any other providers, so I don’t know what the going rate is.
I’m wondering how you go about getting all the junk mail to stop? I don’t want to have to pay a mail service to forward junk.
I feel pretty certain Florida will be our home base, after all it was home for over 30 years. There is no state tax and vehicle registration is reasonable, even though the cost increased last year.
This is just another thing we will need to research more.
