Niagara Falls NY - Mail Box Rentals

Hi there -

I know there has been a bunch of posts - but I haven't seen anything lately.

I'm considering signing up for a US Mailbox at either SGS Can Am or CBI USA. Any feedback of users of either? I have seen a bunch from CBI - but not anything from SGS Can Am - especially since they changed hands last fall?

Anybody have some experience with one or both?

Thanks,

SP

Use CBI USA and love it. The guys who run that place are top notch. Always quick to reply to any email or issues...even had them call me a few times if it was a big issue.

I'd recommend them hands down.

And super close to the Queenston-Lewiston bridge crossing.

This is highly likely a shill posting, but it is cheaper and I like that they have 3 and 6 month mailbox options.

However, CBI has excellent customer service and this place has virutally no reviews.

rhunter1, congrats on getting the website up today... and I love the retro 90s theme.

+1000 for CBI, those guys rock, they've got me out of a bind more than once.
They hold packages indefinitely, have online tracking, even re-ship to other CDN orz US address while on vacation, let you use their computers on site at no charge, the'ye even kept their spot open for me up to 30 mins after they closed since I was delayed in border traffic.

You're best bet if you think thier prices are too high is to split it with with 2 or 3 other people like I did. I've had a membership for 5+ yrs now.

I have been very happy with Kinek. You only pay for what you pickup, and they have depots all over the place. General cost is $5 - $15 per package depending on which store you select and how heavy it is. When you sign up for them (free) they give you an address that sorta looks like you work at the store.

Used them many times and always great service. $5/package. Setting up with them just took an email. Right over the lewiston border crossing. usaddressinc.com is the website if I remember correctly.

I use CBI and love them, but now that my schedule is getting busier, I need a place that opens Sunday. Anyone use American Mailbox? You can PM me if you rather not post it.

Hi All

I love shipping to the US....we save a tonne of money. However I would tell you to be cautions when using SGS Can-AM Mailboxes. They are the ones at the end of Whirlpool bridge. The business was sold recently (in the last couple of years) and the staff that they have now, do not really understand "Customer Service." I drove down on Saturday, July 20th to pick up 4 packages from them. I called prior to going as we had those bad storms come through. There was no indication on the website, the voice mail or facebook that they were closed. When I arrived the place was closed due to no power and about 8 people were standing outside with no direction. The notice that they were closed only came up around 9:15 am that morning when most Canadians would have been on their way. Now I understand that a business will close when things happen that are out of their control. For this I am not upset. I called on Monday to see if they had reopened as the facebook page had not yet been updated. I spoke with Matt. I asked him if they were going to compensate those in anyway who came down on Saturday and he was rather rude and said no as it was beyond there control. My husband went to pick up the packages on Tuesday and spoke to the Manager Alex. He asked her is there was any promo or special for those that came down on Saturday when you were closed. She was extremeley rude to him and told her that they offered a service we needed so it did not matter. My husband informed her that we will be taking our business elsewhere as this kind of business was a dime a dozen. Again, not bothered by them closing, bothered by their lack of informing people and sucky Customer Service. I will be using CBI from now on.

I have been using American Mailbox on 3rd, across from Seneca Casino since September 2012. Nice guys. Good rates. Open Sundays. Their phone number is on outside window and if you call after hours they came and opened up for me. Don't know if they do that with all customers but I am sure they would as long as you don't abuse it. Their website with hours are: www.AmericanMailbox.net
