Obtaining a PO Box in another state..
    #3620314 - 01/12/05 09:42 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

My apologies if this has already been answered. I searched around but didn't find what I was looking for.

I live in California. Obviously, this means that I cannot have spores shipped to me. However, I am a relatively short distance from the border of another state in which it is legal to ship spores to. I was wondering if it would be possible to open up a PO Box in this neighboring state without actually being a resident there.

Thanks in advance. Oh, and hello everyone! Short-time browser, first-time poster.

This probably belonds in Safety & Security, but that's irrelevant. I honestly am not sure, but I would guess you would have to show proof of residence in that state to open a PO Box.

well.... it's easy. just open one up and say you just moved in to town. use a mail boxes etc. or something like that, not an actual postal branch. usually as long as you have a picture i.d. it's okay. you can say you are homeless, and do not have an actual residence, you bounce around from house to house at friends, you need a secure address in order to get a job, and that's why you need a p.o. box. make some excuse, but have a picture i.d. that's usually all you need is 2 forms of i.d. in my experience. just don't act shady, and it's no big deal.

Yes you can do this and you don't need to tell them why :smile:

All you need really to open a PO Box is identification.  Your ID can be from the state you live in or another.  People do have jobs which  require them to travel.  So many people open PO boxes in different states to get their mail easier while travelling.  :smile:  (there's an excuse if you need it).

Point is, just take your ID with you, if you get some remark as like (You're a far way from home, why are you opening this box here?)  Simply say that you travel.

Please let me know how it goes or if you need anything.

No. You're absolutly required to have an ID saying you live in the city of the mailbox. No exceptions are made for any reason.

You could however, try a mail forwarding service in another state.

So one says yes and one no. I'd like to know who is correct. Maybe the Postmaster knows.

Ditto,

In addition to forwarding mail, A mail-drop will also accept packages from all the major shippers.
