VAN LIFE PROBLEMS | PERMANENT MAILING ADDRESS
I get this question a lot. What about getting mail or i need a permanent address for some things in my life. Well….. I have a solution. Its kind of a no brainer. If you don’t need a service like this and you have a friend or family address you can use then PERFECT.

Thank you SO MUCH for the INVALUABLE information!!!!!! I downloaded this video on purpose 🙂
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.
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!
Can you use these address as a proof of address for drivers licence and health care?
Do you use this on your driver’s license?
Great info thx 👍🌵
Once again excellent info!!!👠🚌👠
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.
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.
Yup if you just relax it is an easy lifestyle for sure Love it
you rock – thanks. love disco
Ours is at ups store and is shown as real address and sends email if have pkg…like P.O. box but real address
I use a company called Pak Mail …. excellent place !
I’m just noticing..you and Cruzie are twins! 🙂
Love this video. I agree with the subscriber who asked you to go back around Christmas time. I’ll be watching for it.
I just found out about the Amazon one yesterday, I didn’t know there was such a thing. Thanks Chrome.
Here in finland is not allowed anymore for permanent address. Keep up! Building my own van now. Going out and working same(daywork) + Fishing etc.
Omg those Halloween inflatables 🎃 👻 🧛♂️ 😂
Thx Chrome, just the Info I needed! Great Videos😎👍
Could get four vanlifers to share a box, like roomies 😀 I get my mail to a fancy storage place, $8 month-to-month and they text when mail has come.
GREAT HEADS UP !! THAHKS CHROME !! 👍👍 👊👊
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.
Bro im not being disrespectful but you look like mr clean.. No I mean literally
Vancouver seems like such a beautiful city
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.
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?
Chrome, you are a very uniquely special individual … so happy I found your channel. Peace!!
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….
I was wondering about this. Thanks for the great info. I’ll be looking into Mailroom. Cheers!
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!
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 😁
You don’t use that address for your vehicle ownership and IRS, do you?
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!
Is this type of address acceptable for voter registration too?
Hi Sir!! I am a new follower preparing for retirement… 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, but… HELP please! I searched the company you mentioned and couldn’tfind them. Can you share who you use now? I know in Canads we need one for taxes, driver’s license, and health cards 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️♥️🙏🏽
This is so helpful!
Well that solves that issue.
You better be glad your not in the states because someone would have shot you. Just saying.. I wouldn’t
interesting information xxx
Hey chrome I live in Alabama and watch your show almost every day, I want to send you a tag from Alabama but don’t know how to do it. Can you send me instructions . I hope you never stop doing the videos. Your show is my way of going to Vancouver without leaving my house, I am 75 and love your videos that opens doors to the world for me
Does anyone else sync their cell phone in order to be able to comment while watching on their tv? Because a ‘like’ isn’t always enough lol. Another informative video. Thank you Chrome😊 Hi Disco 😘🐶
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 ..
Anyone in the US do anything similar with regards to your drivers license and van registration?
The one I found was $70 a month
Could you please place a link to the companies website
Pretty good info from a guy who says he’s not posting "how to" vids
Hmmm Mail Room is the name of this specific enterprise? Is it a local company or exists elsewhere ?
Now that’s a collection lol,
The view looking into the yard I got a dejavu feeling
