Yes, Mail is moving in plants across the USA 24/7/365.Is there a way to check exactly what time USPS delivers mail at your house on a daily basis?
No. You can ask where your delivery is on a route, and the approximate time expected, from your carrier.
Mail volume, late delivery from General mail facility, employee call outs, can all effect the time we leave each day. If we are short of clerks, it takes longer to get our mail.
In our facility with 34 routes, we have two throwing parcels, two sorting individual letters and flats (magazine size mail), one sorting bundles of magazines per route, one helping the back door. So if one of them is missing, we get our mail late.
When a carrier is out, and there aren’t enough to fill every route, the route still has to be cased- mail put in order per delivery- of the mail left at out cases. (We also get letter mail put in order by machines.) Then the mail has to be split up and carried by other carriers.
Depending on when the carrier carriers the “split” from the other route, which is usually first, your mail gets pushed back.
How long does regular mail take to be delivered?
It depends on the to and from zip codes. If the letter is going to a rural area, it could take a day longer than it would if it were being mailed from and to a big city. But I would guess 2 maybe three days from Texas to Louisiana.
What exactly does ‘processed through ISC New York’ mean on USPS tracking?
International Sorting Center. Located in New York, so it went through the plant process in New York and being sorted into different areas of the USA, headed your way.
USPS says my package will be here today and is in transit. The mailman already came and went. Will I still be getting my package today?
It could still come. Either the carrier missed it, its in the truck, and they will be back, or it could be brought out tonight if mis-sorted. Most likely will get it next day If mis-sorted, but sometimes we are sent back out with parcels.
Can I change my delivery address after a FedEx package has been shipped?
If you have a tracking number, you can call FedEx, or the shipper, but that is the only way to change it with them. USPS is the only shipper that has change of address forms.
U.S. Postal Service: Do I legally have to have a mailbox?
You do not. Take a letter to the post office stating you want no mail delivery, and you want all mail returned to sender. Take your box down and all parcels and mail will be sent back “”no mail receptical”.
How can I “refuse” a USPS shipment?
Write refused and DO NOT OPEN IT. Leave it for carrier to pick up, or take it to post office.
How much time does it take USPS to forward a first class mail to my new address?
It can take up to 14 business days depending on how often forwarded mail is moved out of the office- which should be daily. Next, how far it has to travel to forward, which should not take more than two days and last, how backed up forwarding is, when it gets there to be keyed and correct label put on to be mailed to your current address.
Can I wrap my goods with plastic wrap or a bigger envelope and ship it through USPS?
Yes. As long as it is secure and an address is legible. People mail flip flops with an address on them, coconuts, beach balls, plastic Coke bottles. Etc.
Is it possible to track the status of a USPS Priority Mail with information such as sender & receiver address, date of payment, and credit card used for payment?
No, you can fill out a form for a missing piece of mail or package and an inquiry will be started. But without tracking, it’s almost impossible.
