I come from Puerto Rico and I want to change my address, I have to call to Puerto Rico to change the address or only fill a paper with us?


My mail carrier continues to deliver all of our neighborhood mail to the wrong addresses. He walks up to my home smoking a cigarette. My mail and packages smell like smoke. Carrier opened my amazon grocery order and put a 12 pack of soda onto my eggs making a huge mess. I filed a complaint and now I get daily retaliation from the carrier. The carrier cites my address for violations such as a car too close to the mail box. I live on a public road and cannot control who parks near my mailbox (no one has ever blocked the mailbox). It is near impossible to file a complaint with USPS. I cannot get through on the local number to the post office directly. Pretty piss poor customer service and a sorry excuse for a mail carrier. I hear from other carriers that this individual is a problem employee. Seem impossible to get any action taken to correct this individual.


I received a package from an Ebay purchase today. The package was clearly opened by someone and the contents removed... leaving only an empty box. USPS in Hockessin has a VERY sketchy track record with my packages. i cant believe that the USPS allows this to happen!


Very surprised by package delivery at 8:30 Sunday morning. I don't think it was necessary to ring the doorbell when they were just leaving the package. Most of my family was still asleep as Sunday is the only day they can sleep in a little.
Please dont ring the bell if you have no intention of waiting for me to answer (10 seconds) EARLY SUNDAY MORNING.
IF You want to compete with ups and other package services, you should know this. I have owned a business for 30 years and wouldn't call a customer on any day before 9:00 am and would never disturb on Sunday unless there is an emergency.
