    I just received a notice that, for a fee, you can use the post office address for UPS, FedEx and others. You must have the package shipped to the post office address and not your P.O. Box. Check with your post office for details.

    Yes they will !!! I have been getting UPS packages to my PO Box for about two years. The USPS and UPS made an agreement to do so and it does not cost me any extra money at all. The plus side is your package is not unattended to on your door step. It is about like gun shipping info...most clerks and internet sales people know little of the procedures and rules. I have gotten UPS to my PO Box from Brownells, Gamaliel, Sierra Trading Post and multiple items bought thru Amazon.com..... and a few other I cannot remember off hand.

    I do believe that firearms cannot be delivered to a P.O. Box

    UPS cannot deliver to a PO Box, their customers can use parcel select to pay the PO to deliver the parcel the last mile to either your street address or your PO Box.

    Napawino,

    Your location is one the few doing Street Addressing, but this is not available at all locations. There are 6800 to start with I believe, it's important to remember that not all offices are part of this yet.

    The Postal Service is offering the following new services for PO Box customers at this Post Office® location:

    • Street Addressing
    • Signature on File
    • Real Mail Notification™ Service

    A. Street Addressing Service for your PO Box

    With this service, you will have the option of using the street address of this Post Office location for your mailing address in addition to your PO Box number. For example, if a Post Office is located on 500 Main Street and you have PO Box 59, your mail would be addressed 500 Main Street #59. You will also be able to use the street address to receive most packages and deliveries through private carriers, such as UPS and FedEx Both Street Addressed mail and PO Box addressed mail can now be delivered to your PO Box.

    1. When you sign up for this option, your new street address format will be:


    2. Please note that you are limited to this address format, including both the # sign and your PO Box number. For example, you may not use “Suite” or “Apt.” Mail you receive at your PO Box without using the correct address format may be returned to sender.

    3. You may not use the street address option as your physical residence or place of business in legal documents. Misuse of your street address in this manner may result in closing your PO Box and may be in violation of civil and criminal laws.

    4. You may use this address only for items that can be delivered through the mail. For example, you may not use the street address to receive shipments of wine, other alcohol, items over 70 pounds or items prohibited by Postal Service policy (see Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) Section 601) , even though private carriers can carry those items. Any such shipments will be refused or held for pickup by the private carrier. The DMM is available at http://pe.usps.com/.

    5. If you close your PO Box, you must submit two Change of Address (COA) forms: one for the PO Box address and one for the street address. Both forms must be forwarded to the same delivery address. Mail for a PO Box with street addressing cannot be forwarded to two different addresses.

    6. If you decide to discontinue street addressing, mail bearing the street address will be delivered to the PO Box without charge for an additional 90 days. The 90-day period is designed to give customers enough time to communicate their address change to their mailers. After the 90-day readjustment period, all mail addressed to the PO Box street-style address will be returned to sender as undeliverable as addressed.

    NOTE: Street Addressing is not available for Caller Service, Reserve Number, or Group E Box customers.

    B. Signature on File

    The Postal Service™ is offering Signature on File for PO Box customers at this Post Office™ location. With this service, you can place your Signature on File with the Postal Service, which eliminates the need to wait in line to sign for a package.
    When you sign up for Signature on File, you authorize the Postal Service to use this signature whenever the following signature-required mail arrives at your PO Box:
    • Express Mail®
    • Insured Mail over $200 (including Electronic Return Receipt)
    • Signature Confirmation™

    We will place this mail in your PO Box or in a secure parcel locker for you to pick up at your convenience.

    Terms and Conditions

    You must complete two PS Forms 3849 (“Sorry We Missed You”) with this agreement. One will be scanned when an eligible item for Signature on File is received. Another will be reserved in a secure area in case the first one did not scan properly. Although everyone listed on the PS Form 1093, PO Box Application, can participate, only the primary box holder (the one who signed the PO Box Application (PS Form 1093) can sign the two PS Forms 3849. All persons who receive mail at this box must abide by the terms and conditions as well.

    NOTE: Signature on File service does not apply to the following accountable items: Registered Mail (including Return Receipt), Certified Mail® (including Return Receipt), “green” hardcopy Return Receipt, and Restricted Delivery. Also, you will still need to go to the Retail counter to pick up an item that does not fit in your PO Box when no parcel locker is available. Mail placed in a parcel locker that is not picked up within a few days may need to be picked up at the Retail counter.


    C. Real Mail Notification™ Service

    With this service, you will receive either an email or text message each delivery day to inform you that you will receive mail in your PO Box that day at the scheduled time. Notifications will typically come before the PO Box mail is delivered to the PO Box. Currently, this service is only available for letters and flat envelopes.

    Please note that, at this time, we can accommodate only one email address or cell phone number for each Post Office Box address. If you choose to receive text messages, be sure to check with your phone’s service provider about any fees for incoming text messages.

    To Participate in Real Mail Notification

    You need to provide either an email address or a cell phone number.

    NOTE: Real Mail Notification service is fully automated and uses information from our mail processing equipment. Our internal testing indicates that there is a high degree of accuracy in this information but occasionally the notification may not be 100% accurate.

    ___ (Please initial.) I would like to participate in Real Mail Notification™ service. Below I have checked the message format I desire, and completed the needed information.

    Terms and Conditions

    This document identifies the Terms and Conditions under which the Postal Service makes optional new PO Box services available to you. By signing this agreement, you are stating that you have read and understand this document and you agree to be bound by its terms and conditions. These services (as described above) are offered on a voluntary basis. Customers who wish to participate in these services must sign this document indicating they agree to the terms and conditions. If you do not sign this agreement, you will continue to receive regular PO Box service without the new services.
