Yesterday I was surprised to see a US Postal Servicve banner ad on a business website touting “Free Package Pickup”. Several months ago I wrote Don’t Stand in Line for Postage without ever discovering on the USPS site that free package pickup was an option. And if you go there today, you still probably won’t find a single mention of it — unless you search. Search, I did, and here’s what I found: Yes, it is available and here’s the USPS information page about it. That makes one more reason you don’t have to go to the Post Office.
I haven’t tried it yet. You need to arrange for pickup the previous day, and pickup time will depend on when your carrier comes to your location, but as the Fact Sheet says, “No more waiting in line at the Post Office. And no more valuable time away from your business.” Worth a try.
