I'd be getting a PO Box... you can't be calling in work sick every time you expect a package...
Isn't there some sort of service where you can collect packages from the depot yourself in the USA? We have several services like that in Europe. That way they save on delivery, and you are sure to get your goods.
That's what a PO Box is. It's a mail box for you at the post office instead of at your house.
No, I mean like you can get packages delivered to other places/businesses, so that you are not limited to receiving the volume that will fit into the PO box you rented. For example, I get packages delivered to a supermarket near me, and it doesn't matter what size they are. Furthermore, it's cheaper than delivering to a PO box (which seems to cost the same price as a delivery to a private address + the cost of renting the PO box).
I'm not aware of anything like that here... we do have UPS locations that will accept mail, but I don't know what they charge. Even if we did, I'm not sure I'd want my coins going to the supermarket..
