Question: If I have a package that doesn't fit in the mailbox, I have a week and a half to pick it up. If I have an address mistake and check "tracking" they return my property immediately instead of allowing me the same amount of time to pick the package up. I now lose my property cause I'm not paying for shipping again. Said package wouldn't fit in mailbox anyway.


If it does not fit in the mailbox usually the carrier will leave the package at your door.Unless, it requires a signature, than a peach colored note card sized form will be left at your door (if no one answers) that will inform you to pick up the package at your local post office, then a follow up peach form will be left in your mailbox notifying you to either pick it up by a certain time or it will be sent back.Of course a multitude of factors can also exist: apartments, retirement homes, parcel lockers, secured buildings/neighborhoods, wrong address (street, number, name, city, state, or zip code), etc.If the address is wrong someone else may get your package, you may still get your package, or it may be returned to sender. If the address is wrong one of two people is to blame: You the receiver or the sender.Always make sure when you are having something sent to you that the sender has the correct information, double check, have them repeat back to you/check confirmation e-mails.
