Mail and package handling is a separate service available for Virtual Membership and Flex Desk Plans for an additional $50/month and is included in the Reserved Desk and Private Office Plans.

Members can also opt-in to our Mail Scanning Service for $50/month. Members with this service are emailed a digital copy of their mail within one business day of receipt.
