UPS Mail Service?

We are just stretching our wings as newly minted full timers. For a number of reasons, we'd like to have our domicile listed in a particular county in Virginia, which rules out most of the other well known mail services (Escapees, KOA, etc.). So, we're thinking about UPS, who are located just about everywhere. I've spoken with them over the phone and they seem to do all the things we would want them to do. Would like to hear about others' experiences using UPS as a mail forwarding service.

We do use USPS for some things, but they have their limitations. We are domiciled in Kansas, but we use Escapee's mail service for the last 6 years for our mail forwarding and they've done a great job. While mail forwarding and domicile usually go together, they don't have to.

Clarification--I was referring to UPS--the guys in brown--not USPS.

As someone that mails a lot of packages $20,000+ per year. If you to make sure it gets there go with USPS, and they are much cheaper.

We are full-timing, but our official address is a UPS store in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It satisfies all the requirements for vehicle registration, driver's license, voting, and paying taxes. The only hiccup we encountered was opening a new money market account. The UPS address did not qualify as a residential address according to the Patriot Act, so we had to use our son's address. But the UPS address is on our DL, insurance, and everything else. We have come to have a personal relationship with the guys at the store, and I just call them up and tell them where to forward the mail. They have our CC, and send it via UPS each week without fail. So far so good after a year!

X2 on this. We also Fulltime and use a UPS store in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee as our official address and as stated above for everything else too. Works great and we have never had any issues with it.
