Why do you need a virtual business address with Mail Boxes Etc Denmark

Operating a business can be a lot easier when you use a virtual office service. It removes many of the worries that startups and small business have about using their own address. We have opened our business 15 months ago in Copenhagen, Denmark and we have over 100 virtual business address or we name it also rent a Mailbox with us. We talked to many business owners before and after they have formed a company and they tell us why a virtual office service is so important to them. The following are some of the most common reasons people have a virtual address with us.

  1. Keep your address private. Many small businesses operate from home. This can save many new businesses a lot of money in the first few years. Unfortunately, it also means giving customers your home address. Using a virtual address service keeps your address off public websites and allows you to provide customers and suppliers with a real address. Do you really want your customers turning up at your house?
  2. Permanently manned office. Our offices are open during normal office hours and staff are on hand all day which means you will never miss an important delivery or document that needs to be signed for on receipt. You can visit your customers without worrying if you are missing important letters, parcels or payments. We store parcels and letters for 30 days*, we also take larger packages on like machinery and plates.
  3. Professional address. Does your existing address look like a residential location or an industrial unit? If a customer checks your location do you look like you are based in a commercial or business area of the town or will google maps show your true location.
  4. Customer confidence. Customers want to see an address on your website. Using a virtual address allows you to display a real address for customers on websites, emails, and letters. Would you buy from a business that did not display an address or only offers a Postnord Box number?
  5. One fixed address. A permanent address can save your business money and allows you to be flexible. Not all businesses are static and you may need to travel with your business or move into new regions as you expand. If you are managing a business from home you can move house or rent a new property without having to keep changing your business address.

A virtual address is more than a mail forwarding services. It provides your customers with a real address and all its advantages. It allows you to focus on running your business without telling the world where you and your family live.

Mailbox rental and virtual address

The number of mailboxes and virtual addresses keeps increasing, so what is all this about? The are several reasons, we have companies which only need an address to be registered and operate from another place, quite common for independent workers who wish to separate their home address from the work/office address. International companies that need Danish presence. Private mailboxes is also quite common, some clients are travelling around the world or living abroad and need a place that receives and manages their post, some clients are not home when their online purchase is been delivered, so they rather pick up at our address whenever they are free.

Our customers get notify when post or parcels are delivered, and they can choose to get them scan to email or forwarded to a different address, we can store items for an extra time if required, the service adjusts to the customer needs.

Special Packing

At Mail Boxes Etc. we deal with different types of items to be shipped or simply customers who required special packaging. We had the case of a big harp that was traveling with the owner and needed to be packed for the flight. Even though we are never in control of what happens in the transportation process we can reduce the chances of damage by packing as good as possible.

Another case was a beautiful old clay statue which is very fragile and had cracks already. A lot of protection material, and space to absorb all impact was necessary, in this case for more safety was placed in a custom made pallet so it would be handled more carefully. We can say it arrived in one piece and there is a happy customer enjoying the new acquisition.


More than a shipment

Shipments are getting things from one place to another, it sounds simple and boring, but somethings have a value that you can’t put a price on.

This old rocking chair have sat 4 generations and it needed to follow the family from Denmark to the US. Pick up and careful packing was required to make sure it arrived in one piece as well as the customs documentation to go smoothly. The family is happy and reunited with a piece of their history.

At Mail Boxes Etc. we are happy to make this things happen.
