Mail forwarding service options
In addition to the mail shipment services, OPAS provides scan, discard and shred services. OPAS scans the document and uploads the scanned file (PDF) to your secure OPAS account. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a scanning service for items that may contain sensitive information, such as checks, gift/credit/debit cards, or PINs. However, we will be able to offer a shipping service.
*Please also note some mail items may be opened to determine whether it is a mailed correspondence or merchandise purchased from a store so that we can adequately register, sort it, and check shipping regulations. Discarding and shredding services are free of charge.
*OPAS will be able to offer shipping services as long as there are no restrictions for the item(s) that you wish to ship in the country of destination.
