UPDATE: It appears BoxChecked is out of business. Please consider one of these alternatives.
BoxChecked is “The Entrepreneur’s Virtual Assistant” company. They are based in the US, and all of their virtual assistants also work across the US.
The company is focused on helping entrepreneurs grow their business by relieving them of the day-to-day tasks that drain their time.
The company was formed in spring 2016 by Shane and Jennifer Young, a brother and sister team. Shane and Jennifer have worked together for a number of years. After building a successful company of their own they turned their focus to starting boxChecked to help others grow their own businesses through the use of their virtual assistants.
The company specializes in helping businesses grow by handling the repetitive tasks that keep you too busy to focus on other areas of your business. The virtual assistants at BoxChecked have been vetted and have a wide range of skill sets to handle anything you throw at them.
Box Checked offers a handful of different service packages. Their “Paper Pushing Isn’t For Me” package includes:
- accounting chores
- social media and web tasks
- any form of paperwork
- scheduling and booking appointments
- answering phone calls and emails
- project management
- and more
Their “Do Just One Project” package does exactly that. They do one project or task off your list at a time for a fixed hourly rate. This can include getting your workflow organized, carrying out research, or just about anything you need doing.
Their “Dedicated Back Office” package is a service to handle all of your back office needs. It’s a quicker and more cost-efficient option than hiring a member of staff, and they have a team of virtual assistants ready to start immediately.
Their fourth package isn’t really a virtual assistant service at all. Their $500 one-time “Business Assessment” service is more of an outsider’s audit of your business and processes. The assessment is conducted by a successful and seasoned entrepreneur who will make recommendations based on the health and opportunities they discover.
This is aimed at people starting up a new business or needing some direction for their existing business. With experience in starting and growing a successful business, BoxChecked has the expertise to offer some valuable advice.

VAA Exclusive: If you mention Virtual Assistant Assistant when buying a package you will receive 10% off the purchase price for up to three months.
When I asked boxChecked what separates them from the other companies in the crowded virtual assistant space, they said, “The big thing that sets us apart is our experience building, running, and selling a company to a publicly traded company. Isn’t that every small business’ dream? We bring that experience and proven track record to your business.”
(It’s a unique and interesting selling proposition, though a big exit might not be your dream or where you want to take your business.)
Among US-based virtual assistant services, Time Etc and Boldly are well-reviewed, similarly priced, and worthy of your consideration.
