Today, 3/20/2021. Move from Healdsburg to Washington State on 10/6/2020. Mail finally started coming after almost a month. Now 5 months later my mail is now being delivered again to my old address and not to my new address in Washington. According to the "Official Change of Address Conformation Letter", forwarding is to continue until Oct 6,2021. Important insurance and tax information is still arriving at my old address, current occupants thought it was junk mail and have thrown it away. I am disabled and depend on my mail service. I have heard of many who are unhappy with the mail service in Healdsburg and the politics that are happening with the staff, but this is ridiculous! Yes, they do not answer the phone. Why would they, the complaints must be a full time job for someone there that actually cares.
I just read all these negative reviews and am amazed there are so many complaining people out there. I've been in Healdsburg over 40 years and never met a local postal worker who was not very friendly and polite. I came from San Francisco where that was not the case. If your mail is being stolen, get a locking mail box. If they're not answering the phone they are too busy. It is a very taxing job and the carriers are overworked. If you received your neighbor's mail have you ever stopped to consider maybe the carrier was given someone else's route on top of their own. Give them a break.
Leaves Amazon packages on top of mail box but says via Amazon puts in mail box. Does not deliver to the house as am 1/4 mile from mailbox. Items stolen. Misdelivered. Can he not read and deliver accordingly or take item to PO and leave me a card to pick up at the PO. Should be fired .
Yesterday, Amazon sent me a note saying that my small package, turned over to USPS for delivery, would be delayed for a couple of weeks. An hour later, I checked the tracking at usps.com, which said that the parcel had indeed been delivered to my mailbox. Nothing there, so either it was stolen, put in the wrong mailbox, or USPS is fibbing.
I am a Calif native and lived in the east bay, Southern Cal and now Northern Calif. In my 66 years I have taken the mail delivery for granted. It's always been there, never had to think about it. Until now. This is the worst service I have ever witnessed. I have on several occasions received notices that there was an attempt to deliver but was un accessible. I live on an open street in a year old home. My driveway and path to front door is ALWAYS accessible. On these days I not only missing packages but even the mail is not delivered. Let me be clear, there is no attempt at all to deliver. Not sure if it's a staffing issue but this is the worst service I have ever had to deal with.
If you go to www.postallocation.com for Healdsburg you will see I'm not alone.
It is happening again! the mail AND our newspapers are being stolen out of our mail boxes. Today I received a pile of mail (20 pieces plus, postal bubble envelope with a book in it), none addressed me. I am sure our neighbors would be VERY upset too, knowing I received all their mail today!! I will be taking to the Healdsburg postmaster, because not all the is addressed to only one person, grrrr
You are right, the post office does not answer the phone. Can I ask a question through this venue? What happens to mislabeled mail? Does it get returned to sender? Need to know, some checks are missing.
I consistently have to go to the post office to pickup things that the mailman is supposed to deliver. anything larger than a CD always gets marked as reason he couldnt deliver as "Receptacle Blocked" Why does he have a job?
