Business owners who do not have a Post Office box or who receive too much mail for the largest box size can schedule regular caller service at a local branch. This gives the business owner a regular time slot during which he can stop in and quickly pick up all of his mail.

The UPS Store offers a street address and additional services with its business mailbox rentals. Not all UPS Store locations have mailboxes for rent, however. Mailbox access is usually available 24 hours at these locations.

Many areas also have smaller mom-and-pop businesses that rent mailboxes and have business mail services. These generally also offer a street address. They may only offer access to the box during business hours, however.

Some "online mailbox" services exist that open mail, scan it and forward it by email to the recipient. They may also be able to forward physical mail and packages. These services are useful for maintaining a business mailbox while traveling outside of the country.
