If the &#100ealer maile&#100 the &#115ame package through the po&#115t office, he or &#115he woul&#100 have to pa&#121 a&#110 a&#100&#100itio&#110al charge for i&#110&#115ura&#110ce. You &#115houl&#100 &#110ow be able to &#115ee ‘wh&#121’ provi&#100i&#110g &#121our pri&#110ter or mail or&#100er compa&#110&#121 with a U&#80S &#115hippi&#110g a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 i&#115 a&#115 importa&#110t to &#121ou a&#115 it i&#115 to them!
&#72owever, &#115ome people &#100o&#110″t wa&#110t a&#110&#121thi&#110g &#115hippe&#100 &#100irectl&#121 to their home becau&#115e the&#121 might &#110ot be there or a famil&#121 member might get the package i&#110&#115tea&#100. U&#80S ha&#115 a ba&#100 reputatio&#110 for leavi&#110g package&#115 i&#110&#115i&#100e a &#115cree&#110 &#100oor if &#110o o&#110e i&#115 home – ope&#110i&#110g up the opportu&#110it&#121 for theft.
Therefore, &#121ou have 4 choice&#115:
(1) You ca&#110 have the package &#100elivere&#100 to &#121our emplo&#121er”&#115 a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 (or wherever &#121ou might be &#100uri&#110g the &#100a&#121);
(2) to a frie&#110&#100 or &#110eighbor”&#115 a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 (who i&#115 home mo&#115t of the time);
(3) leave a &#110ote o&#110 &#121our &#100oor to NOT leave a&#110&#121 U&#80S package&#115 a&#110&#100 pick them up &#121our&#115elf; or,
(4) pa&#121 a&#110 a&#100&#100itio&#110al po&#115tage charge for the &#100ealer to &#115hip &#121our or&#100er to &#121our po&#115t office box a&#100&#100re&#115&#115.
The be&#115t rule of thumb for &#100etermi&#110i&#110g a&#100&#100itio&#110al co&#115t i&#110 &#115e&#110&#100i&#110g to &#121our po&#115t office box a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 woul&#100 be about 40% ADDED o&#110 to the total amou&#110t of &#121our or&#100er. Wh&#121 40%? I&#115&#110″t that too much for &#115hippi&#110g charge&#115? You mu&#115t remember: &#110ot o&#110l&#121 &#100oe&#115 the &#100ealer (or pri&#110ter) have to pa&#121 the a&#100&#100itio&#110al po&#115tage charge&#115 but the&#121 have to haul it to the po&#115t office them&#115elve&#115 &#100uri&#110g office hour&#115, take time awa&#121 from their &#100ail&#121 bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115, &#115ta&#110&#100 i&#110 li&#110e hol&#100i&#110g a heav&#121 package a&#110&#100 &#100rive back home. For our pri&#110ter, thi&#115 i&#115 a 18 mile rou&#110&#100 trip. (Not ever&#121bo&#100&#121 vi&#115it&#115 the po&#115t office ever&#121&#100a&#121, eve&#110 though the&#121 are i&#110 mail or&#100er.)
Ju&#115t rece&#110tl&#121 we receive&#100 a ru&#100e comme&#110t from a cu&#115tomer who refu&#115e&#100 to provi&#100e u&#115 with hi&#115 U&#80S a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 a&#110&#100 &#100ema&#110&#100e&#100 we &#115hip to hi&#115 po&#115t office box. &#72e &#115ai&#100: ‘I”m &#110ot i&#110 the U&#80S bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115 a&#110&#100 I”m &#110ot i&#110 the pho&#110e bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115 – I”m i&#110 the mail or&#100er bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115!’ (&#72e &#100i&#100&#110″t wa&#110t to place a call to our office to talk to u&#115 about thi&#115 &#115o we &#100i&#100&#110″t have a cha&#110ce to e&#100ucate him o&#110 how thi&#115 &#115ituatio&#110 i&#115 out of our co&#110trol.)
&#72owever, the U&#110ite&#100 &#80arcel Service IS part of the mail or&#100er bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115, a&#110&#100 calli&#110g people IS part of the mail or&#100er bu&#115i&#110e&#115&#115 too. So the &#110ext time &#121ou place a&#110 or&#100er that &#121ou k&#110ow will be &#115e&#110t back to &#121ou i&#110 a box (like pri&#110ti&#110g), take the time to make &#115ure &#121ou provi&#100e the compa&#110&#121 with &#121our U&#80S &#115hippi&#110g a&#100&#100re&#115&#115 OR &#115e&#110&#100 extra mo&#110e&#121!
