Busiest week for USPS with holiday mailing, shipping and delivery

Time running out on holiday mailing, shipping, delivery arriving by Christmas

Time running out on holiday mailing, shipping, delivery arriving by Christmas

Patience will be a virtue as you mail those last minute packages and cards this week. Her son also got to visit with Santa in the lobby of the post office.

"Make sure you know your rights this Christmas just in case something unexpected happens to your delivery".

Miss Tuesday's deadline? There are still options. One person was outraged that a parcel was left under their vehicle, another had a parcel left with a neighbour without permission, who opened it and showed it to others in the village, and a third found a fragile delivery after it had been "tossed over the gate". That's for your packages. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, USPS expects to deliver more than 850 million packages, an increase of more than 10 percent compared to the same period last year.

Fresno's post master, Doug Smith, said, "Most of the time during Christmas we go out at Six a.m".

The USPS estimates three billion pieces of First-Class Mail will be delivered this week before Christmas.

She said the postal service expects to deliver almost 200 million packages leading up to Christmas Eve.

-Avoid sending cash by mail.

Use Special Delivery - For valuable and important packages and parcels guarantee delivery with Royal Mail's Special Delivery, which means your gift is tracked, traced and insured against loss.

-Consider an alternate shipping address.

Long lines, package after package, many are shipping their gifts off to family and friends.
