Go Postal simplifies shipping in Hoboken, NJ
“GO Postal with Benny Love.” Program this number into your phone: (201)400-6907 – you’ll be glad you did.
After bouncing around several locations in Hoboken over the past few years – Go Postal is now located down at 50 Harrison Street. And they have a new truck now too! (more about that below…)
What is Go Postal you might want to know? It’s a super package delivery service owned and operated by born & raised Hoboken resident & entrepreneur Benny Love. This fills a niche that almost everyone could use in town, considering online shopping has hit an all-time high (and with all the package thefts around).
To set up an account – simply text your full name to 201-400-6907 – and you’ll be assigned a “PMB” number. Afterward, you send your boxes to:
50 Harrison Street
PH421 – (plus your PMB#)
Hoboken, NJ 07030
The fee is very modest ($2 per box delivered to their location – and a very small $2 fee to have ALL your boxes then delivered to your apartment at a time convenient for you). They are authorized to accept all major carriers.
The PATH pickup is BACK!
Those living in Hoboken long enough – remember the days when you used to be able to pick your deliveries up by the PATH station (UPS and at one point FedEx was doing it to, I think). But due to the fledgling economy those conveniences were discontinued.
Go Postal will be starting a similar PATH pickup later this spring. Those who utilize Go Postal just have to let them know they want to pick their packages up – and the Go Postal truck will be in the vicinity of the downtown Post Office every night (I think 6pm to 8pm).
I think the peace of mind having a “package concierge” for your deliveries is well worth the pocket-change they charge.
Glad we still have some entrepreneurial spirits in town (that go beyond “apps” and “startups.”) This service is functional, and solves a nagging problem that is only getting worse. Way to go, Benny!
