I'd allow at least a day to judge the lack of response, but maybe you're right. There might not be many who have an opinion.
As for myself, I can't claim a varied experience with mail forwarding services. I used extended family
members before SBI. I see that there are a number of services that one could choose.
Some, like USGlobal Mail have a lower price/monthfor an individual, but a higher cost for the family
. I see choices of Mail Call (San Diego), Dakota Post (South Dakota), NYMail (for that 5th ave. NYC
address) and iPostal1 Digital Mailbox with twenty Florida
addresses with a smart phone
These are the reasons why I use Saint Brendan's Isle:
1- I'm doggedly consistent! 'same career for 32 years, 'same wife for 47 years, 'same boat for 31 years, 'same mail service
for 14 years.
2- SBI is near my "homeport" of 43 years and I sometimes pick up at the "brick & mortar" store. I know, trust and respect the staff.
3- Over the 14 years using SBI I did complain about one missing package. I was offered monetary compensation, but after some time the package was recovered, found to be mislabeled and given to me with a gracious apology. I never had that record
with just the USPS.
4- I've had personal support with not only mail forwarding, but residency, voter's registration
, US Census forms, etc.
5- Even if I catch up with technology and have a smart phone
and start "hailing" Uber drivers, SBI has those technical services that I don't currently use.
