Built to save you time, money and energy.

One home for all your mail

You don’t change your cell phone number when you move, why change your address? Your USGM address will be your permanent, mailing address to keep track of all important mail you get – personal and business. No matter where you live and how many addresses you get mail at.

Why we do it

It started with our desire to do something about the millions of tons of junk mail that gets printed and thrown in the trash. And our love of tech which helps make our lives simpler and more productive.
Combining the two we found a way to revolutionize paper mail by eliminating the physical mail box and helping reduce and recycle truckloads of junk mail.

Frequently Asked

Yup. All you need to do is complete a change of address with the USPS, and you’re good to go. It’s a very simple process (just fill out an online form) but if you run into any snags, we’re just a phone call away.

Nope! The USPS will re-direct all incoming mail, on your behalf. Once you complete the change of address, mail sent to your original address will automatically be forwarded to your new virtual address. Therefore, you do not need to contact family & friends about your new address. They can keep sending mail to the old address, and it will all be forwarded to your new mailing address, automatically.

Once a package arrives at your virtual address, you will get a notification along with the image of your package. Simply click on Shipping in your account, and we’ll have it shipped over to you. The best part is you get up to 80% off retail shipping rates.

All paper mail is stored offline in our corporate warehouse with on property security and 24/7 surveillance systems. The only time any piece of mail goes online, is when you request a mail scan at which point it gets encrypted. Your mail is safe with us.
