    Thank you SO MUCH for the INVALUABLE information!!!!!! I downloaded this video on purpose ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t know about Canada, but many US Post offices are now allowing you to use yout post offices street address as your own and then just specify your PO box as a unit number. Can get packages there and everything at no extra cost.

    DMV, and other places, have a list of addresses like these on their list as not valid home residence.

  4. Strategic Thinker on January 31, 2023 at 5:37 am

    I used to do p.o. boxes (cheaper) this way: I found out the actual street number the post office is on and just put the p.o. box number as the apartment number. So 136/16 Some St., etc… And the mail came no problem. I don’t know if this is still possible or the post office rejects the mail. I think it might still work.

    Would this work when applying for a BC driver’s licence and job applications? If so I’m saved!!! Thanks chrome!

  6. Philippe Di Pizzo on January 31, 2023 at 5:40 am

    Can you use these address as a proof of address for drivers licence and health care?

  7. Brooklyn Dirk on January 31, 2023 at 5:42 am

    Do you use this on your driver’s license?

  8. Ryan Hitchcock on January 31, 2023 at 5:43 am

  9. Graycee Calloway on January 31, 2023 at 5:46 am

    Once again excellent info!!!๐Ÿ‘ ๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿ‘ 

  10. Gallowglass on January 31, 2023 at 5:47 am

    That’s one of the things I was worried about. I need a mail address for work and so no personal info gets sent to my previous address. $16/mo is not bad at all for a permanent address.

  11. Dawn Kelley on January 31, 2023 at 5:47 am

    This is really a super easy problem to solve. People make it so much more difficult then it is. Google will totally be your friend here. Thanks for the video.

  12. Kodey Whitewolf on January 31, 2023 at 5:47 am

  17. April Baxter on January 31, 2023 at 5:54 am

    Love this video. I agree with the subscriber who asked you to go back around Christmas time. I’ll be watching for it.

  18. Andrew Williams on January 31, 2023 at 5:54 am

    I just found out about the Amazon one yesterday, I didn’t know there was such a thing. Thanks Chrome.

  19. Joona Parhankangas on January 31, 2023 at 5:55 am

  22. VR Ardis on January 31, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Could get four vanlifers to share a box, like roomies ๐Ÿ˜€ I get my mail to a fancy storage place, $8 month-to-month and they text when mail has come.

  23. Joachim Peiper SS on January 31, 2023 at 6:03 am

    GREAT HEADS UP !! THAHKS CHROME !! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š

  24. Scott Outram on January 31, 2023 at 6:05 am

    Hi Chrome, Great videos. Hey, I just tried to change my BC drivers license to my UPS mailbox and ICBC wouldn’t let it go through because it’s a commercial address. Have you renewed your license or changed your Canada Revenue Agency accounts to reflect your mailbox? Thanks. Scott.

  25. Aero Solos on January 31, 2023 at 6:05 am

    Bro im not being disrespectful but you look like mr clean.. No I mean literally

  26. NoCo VanCo on January 31, 2023 at 6:06 am

    Vancouver seems like such a beautiful city

  27. Martyisnuts Aboutdiggin on January 31, 2023 at 6:08 am

    that answered my question all that other shit like pooping is just common sense. I was thinking of maybe using a friends address. don’t need an address for anything other then the government issued crap.

  28. Mike on January 31, 2023 at 6:08 am

    What about registering your car? Car registrations require two different forms of proof of residence. What do you use? You change your bank account to the Mailroom address you’re given and what else? Does Mailroom provide you with a proof of address form you can use for car registration?

  29. Top Secret on January 31, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Chrome, you are a very uniquely special individual … so happy I found your channel. Peace!!

  30. Cameron Garcia on January 31, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Speaking of check’s, some banks are now using electronic check deposit. Bank of America (which is my bank) allows me to actually scan the front/back of the check into my account, and within 3-5 days the check is now added to my banking account….

  31. dianeinvanbc on January 31, 2023 at 6:11 am

    I was wondering about this. Thanks for the great info. I’ll be looking into Mailroom. Cheers!

  32. Terri Lynch My Life on January 31, 2023 at 6:12 am

    We have a ups store that does that. I think it’s expensive though. Wow my daughter would love that Halloween house. It’s her favorite holiday! Thanks so much for the vid. Love you guys!

  33. Wild Adventures on January 31, 2023 at 6:12 am

    I have a P.O. box, postmaster says "use Post Office Street address as a street Address" and they will see your name on the mail and just put it in Your Box ๐Ÿ˜

  34. First Name Last Name on January 31, 2023 at 6:14 am

    You don’t use that address for your vehicle ownership and IRS, do you?

  35. BeagleEase Living Free on January 31, 2023 at 6:14 am

    I must be on the right track. Every time I have a question, the next video of yours that I watch turns out being the answer. I just found one of these mail box places right in the middle of my routine shopping area that I never noticed! Blam!

  36. U OL on January 31, 2023 at 6:16 am

    Is this type of address acceptable for voter registration too?

  37. My Wayward Life on January 31, 2023 at 6:16 am

    Hi Sir!! I am a new follower preparing for retirementโ€ฆ it will be on the street as I live paycheque to paycheque so better a van, yeah?! You have such a large following (congratulations and well deserved!) and this is 4 years old, so not sure if you will even see it, butโ€ฆ HELP please! I searched the company you mentioned and couldnโ€™tfind them. Can you share who you use now? I know in Canads we need one for taxes, driverโ€™s license, and health cards ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

  44. Leah Beah on January 31, 2023 at 6:21 am

    So just to clear things up.. everyone is saying that UPS works the same way? I saw a comment say it works for everything except voting ..

  45. MUTE Running on January 31, 2023 at 6:21 am

    Anyone in the US do anything similar with regards to your drivers license and van registration?

  46. keanu weathersbee on January 31, 2023 at 6:22 am

    The one I found was $70 a month
    Could you please place a link to the companies website

  47. Lucian Eugen on January 31, 2023 at 6:23 am

    Pretty good info from a guy who says he’s not posting "how to" vids

  48. Sam Ra on January 31, 2023 at 6:25 am

    Hmmm Mail Room is the name of this specific enterprise? Is it a local company or exists elsewhere ?

  49. Wandering Nature on January 31, 2023 at 6:27 am
