  • About Red Dot Mail
    • What is Red Dot Mail?

      We provide local mailbox rental for individuals and small businesses within or around Folsom, California. For as little as $12 a month, Red Dot Mail can provide you a professional street address, a private and secure mailbox, full-service mail and package receiving, arrival notification, and additional options for mail and package storage and forwarding.

    • How is Red Dot Mail different from other mailbox rental services?

      Our Arrival Notification is a service unlike any other. Upon receiving your mail or package, we will notify you by text message, email or an option of your choice. This way, the trip to your mailbox will always be worth your time and energy. In cases where your mail is coming in everyday, we can easily customize your notification to best suit your schedule.

    • Is Red Dot Mail like a P.O. Box?

      This is not a P.O. Box. Our location is a real street address with a physical office, this is more professional than what a P.O. Box can provide. You are also able to receive mail and packages from all carriers (i.e. FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc).

    • What are your pricing options?

      We offer 3 different mailbox sizes: small, medium and large. We also offer 3 different options for length of rental: 3-months, 6-months and 1-year. Minimum mailbox rental is 3-months and all fees are due at initial sign-up.

      Term Length Small Box Medium Box Large Box
      3 Months $48.00
      6 Months $84.00
      1 Year $144.00
    • How do I know which size mailbox to rent?

      Typically if you receive 3-4 pieces of mail per day we suggest starting out with the Small Mailbox. The reason being is that you can always upgrade to a larger mailbox when necessary. If you know that you receive 5-6 pieces of mail per day then we suggest starting with the Medium Mailbox. Any amount over 6 pieces per day should start with the Large Mailbox.

    • What will my address look like?

      After completing the sign-up process, you will be assigned a Private Mailbox Number (PMB). If your PMB Number is 201 then your address will appear as follows:

      Your Name or Business Name
      2260 East Bidwell Street #201
      Folsom, CA 95630
