Ive been having trouble getting some packages lately. I bought a dozen mink traps off a guy in Pennsylvania he shipped them on November 23, they came to Columbus, Ohio then went to New York then back to Columbus then went farther north to Delaware Ohio then been sitting there for four days now. I bought 3 dozen stretchers off another person in Pennsylvania and I got one dozen in a couple of days and the other two are still sitting in Columbus for a week now. I got the same situation with another big order. Im waiting on about 10 packages and Im just really mad. Anybody else having the same problems.

I've been having trouble with USPS for the last several weeks. A book shipped from Indiana made it to my local facility and was supposed to arrive the next day. Five days later it arrived three hundred miles south at a facility in Norfolk, Virginia. For five more days tracking updates kept saying "Arriving today by 9:00 PM. " It finally showed up about a week later.

Mail (rent checks) from Allentown usually arrives in two days, it's been taking up to five days.

We sent a package to my daughter who is serving overseas. My wife paid $80+ ($50.00 more than the slower option) to get it to Chicago in two days where the military will handle it from there. Nine days later it finally arrived.


Eh...wot?

I just got a shipment of mice from the other side of NY that took almost 2 weeks and was rotten. I have a bunch of customers orders stranded in Rochester NY about 2 hours from me for days now.
We shipped a bunch of orders this past Friday and all but one is in Rochester. The one that isn't in Rochester was out for delivery in California this morning

I had another one a few weeks ago. I bought two large flat rate boxes of conibears from a member here. They was coming from New York and one got here in a couple days and the other went clear to California and back. Took about three weeks to get the second one.

usps would be faster if they didn't have to deliver half of ups's packages. everyday I see that brown truck back into our local post and unload on them. they would also be faster if everybody didn't sit at home and order everything from there couch. ever since this pandemic hit everybody shops from home.

USPS can't even seem to deliver my regular mail on time. I have that USPS Informed Delivery that shows me scanned images of mail I'm getting, but those pieces sometimes show up 1-2 days later.

Leave them be they are trying to figure out what to do with all the Trump ballots! But seriously daughter can not get mail from local colleges delivered. She finally told them not to use the USPS any more. Two full ride offers not delivered! The colleges have been great communicating and she has been on the phone non-stop with them other wise she would not have known. And seriously we used this service to handle an election!!! What a joke!

Update she just told me she received the one offer marked sent ten days ago. Hour drive to the school.

I sent a priority mail large package last month to Wyoming. $22+ for postage and the two day trip took 2 1/2 weeks to arrive.
At the same time UPS is doing all they can to proved good service. Had a delivery last week by ups driving a U Haul truck.
Yesterday the UPS driver was in his own car.

my brother-in-law (big rig driver for USPS) just told his mom not to mail a rum cake to him now (PA to AZ), because he wouldn't get it until his birthday (late January).

All of my stuff delivered through ups or fed ex has been right on time. I think I did have a one day delay on a fed ex delivery a couple weeks ago but that was worst case. The brown Santa havent let me down yet.
