USPS Priority Mail | Wood Cutting Board Arriving on Time

Custom Engraved Cutting Board

Custom Engraved Cutting Board

Mac Cutting Boards has a tremendous holiday season with our online orders.  Yay!  We have been sending our custom engraved cutting boards through our main shipping provider has been USPS Priority Mail.  Every now and again, if the customer approves, we send it USPS Express.  USPS Priority Mail advertises and markets their service to 2-3 business days and USPS Express 1 business day guaranteed.  What we found was absolutely incredible to our disbelief and disappointment.

1. USPS Priority Mail of 2 days is just a HOPE that it will get there.  The real service is 2-7 business days.  If you are looking for your package after the third business day, you cannot even place a tracer on it as it has to hit 7 days before they can start the search.

2. USPS Express Mail is guaranteed 1 day but that is just a HOPE as well.  The real service is 1-2 delivery days and once again you cannot place a tracer on it if it still hasn’t arrived by the next delivery day.

Really???  What kind of service is that?  The price points are great compare to Federal Express or United Parcel Service (UPS), but why market and advertise false hopes?  Bottom line, if you are flexible, use USPS.  If not, spend the monies and go with the carriers who are absolute in their service transit time.  Lesson learned.
