    You are, there is no "inspection" of USPS packages.

    NOOoooo.. your address is now 6540 Acker Drive.
    Your street just isn't the grand river it used to be.

    I or my wife has had a package opened and regaled with tape saying it was inspected. They do check.

    Also so does agriculture. I know a friend in Cali get two packages intercepted because they were shipped potted.soil including peat is regulated. The vendor refused to ship her the plant again. I order the plant get it shipped to me. I bare rooted it and shipped it to her with no soil. And she gets it fine. They do inspect.

    Yeah but you said your plant arrived okay right? At least it wasn't dead. I have had plants lost in the mail and they come 1 month later all black.

    Sorry about that SSS really am. That part sucks. If it's any consolation the 2-3 day priority is always 4-5 because the N Augusta post office sucks butt.

    Hey, glad you got it at least. Also, I'll be sure to write Acker instead of Grand River when you give me your address next time.

    i ship stuff all the time and i can say this for certain: first class is cheaper and faster than priority and even overnight shipping... i ship everything first class unless its over 13 ounces or the person requests it.. i live in oregon and ive had things get to the east coast in 2 days. priority will always take at least 4 days for some reason and the few over night packages ive sent (and paid a lot for) took 3 days...
