Full Time RVing - How Do You Forward Mail? Pay Bills? Get WiFi Internet Access?
Living fulltime in an RV is not all fun and games. Occasionally, we do have to take care of the business end of things, just as we used to do living in a house. How do you get your mail? How do you pay your bills? How do you keep in touch with friends and family? How do you get your medications? Those are some of the most asked questions.
There are many mail forwarding services available:
Your local post office will forward your mail once a week to wherever you may be for a fee.
Mail Boxes Etc. also has a service where you can pay for a mail box on their premises. Then, when you're ready to get your mail, just call them and they will send it to you.
The Escapees Club, an organization for people who live full time in RVs, offers a mail forwarding service.
New in the last couple of years is Earth Class Mail, a company that will receive your mail, open it, scan it to a computer, and email the important stuff to you.
Each bill that allows for an electronic statement should be set up so that you receive your bills by email. And, pay everything you can online.
In the end, taking care of business from the road does take a bit of synchronization, but it is possible to get it all done.
