    USPS Frustration

    So I recently placed an order for some Utrics, which were shipped out, with shipment tracking via USPS on the 17th. They were last tracked at a sorting facility in New York at 5 am on the 18, with expected delivery on the 19th...and nothing today even.
    I really don't mind that it takes them so long to get things delivered, I just dislike that they consistently say things ill get delivered multiple days shorter than they actually will!

    USPS only guarantees delivery time on Express Overnight. Everything else takes from 2 to 30 working days. Like 2-10 days average for Priority and 2-15 days for First Class. As I recall there was an announcement that delivery times for First Class was going to take another day due to cutbacks.

    With all the snow across the nation I would expect some delays.

    See this post for further information

    I guess it differs


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I had two neps shipped over 3000 miles with USPS Parcel for like $11.00 and it arrived in less than two days. I've had better experiences with USPS than UPS or FedEx.
