So what if ups tracking says package has been transferred to usps and is in transit by local post office BUT usps tracking says "pre-shipment" for 7+ days 😒

Imagine if UPS transferred your package to FedEx home delivery and it ends up saying in the tracking that your package has been transferred to FedEx home delivery for final delivery.

Ups only does this if a package is small enough to fit inside a mailbox also when this happens usps will not deliver it to po boxes because ups doesn't deliver to po boxes so therefore when ups transfers a package to usps it's because the package is small enough to fit into a mailbox and usps will deliver it to a mailbox with your home address on it and if you don't have a mailbox with your home address on it usps will hand it off to the post master or the post mistress at your local post office and it will be held at the post office for you to pick it up on request at the front desk at the post office so therefore if your package was handed off to the usps post office by ups and you didn't receive your package it's because you didn't have a mailbox with your home address on it and usually when this happens they will write nmr aka no mail receptacle on the package with a black marker and you will have to go to your post office and go up to the front desk at your local post office and pick it up on request

It's up to the customer, it may ship by ups, but the last mile will be another carrier!, get alot of stuff by ups up to the border of Canada, then transfer to another carrier for the last mile! they say it's cheaper that way??? Other carriers does the same thing!

The dirty secrets that the senders don't tell you when your package doesn't get delivered and shows up in the tracking as undeliverable is that actually undeliverable packages are taken to a facility similar to a facility where airports take unclaimed luggage and when undeliverable packages end up at this kind of place you can't obtain it whatsoever and it has to sit with all the other undeliverable packages and then it has to be returned to the sender and be warned that depending on where you live your packages could get auctioned off and end up in a usps package auction house and you will not get refunded and your money that you spent is wasted

It’s a way for government to get their hands on and see what you’re ordering when it’s not sent through USPS?

This happened to me today, the bad thing is, my items was alll prime items. This happened at 10 am. I get UP shipments all the time. Amazon doesn't know why it got transferred.
I pay for prime, and do expect my items to arrive on time.

My package got to my local post office yesterday at 11 . It was received by the post office at 12:15 . I went to get it at two yesterday and the bitch would not give it to me . Said it wasn't scheduled until the next day . Why wouldn't she give it to me

I actually prefer sometimes for UPS to transfer my packages that I order to my local PO because sometimes the UPS driver either can't locate me or else he is just too damn lazy to deliver them.
For me it saves a lot of aggravation and unnecessary additional wait time where all I have to do is go out to the post office and pick my packages up.

I'm going through this same bs right now, I went to the post office and they kept saying the package never arrived then they proceeded to tell me is was in a ups in a different state. I called that ups and they verified that the package was delivered to the post office in my state and usps won't take responsibility for it. ups even told me the exact time it was dropped off. Then the usps manager told me 7 other people came in the same day with the same issue. So I'm assuming someone in the post office is very negligent or taking high value packages from there.

Ups can’t even deliver a package in one piece more less on time. I waited 5 days for a overnight delivery just for some douche to leave a notice saying attempted delivery but there was no “attempt” involved. Like would it seriously been that hard to knock on a door?

My package just did this and all it has me thinking is Why the ** does UPS still exist if they just pass the delivery off onto the post office? USPS could have got it here faster on their own, FedEx would of got it here on their own faster.. but UPS? Nope, we need to drive this past your house to the Post Office and let them deliver it to you tomorrow! Worthless.

I had to wait nearly a week for a package that could have made it to me in 2 days if the post office shipped it to me. UPS got my package in NV, they then shipped it to Sacramento CA, then shipped it to a county in LA, then shipped it to another facility. After all that they sent it 20 minutes away from where I live to the UPS facility here. That Package went to 3 places it didn't need to go. THESE PEOPLE HAVE THE NERVE TO TRANSFER THAT PACKAGE TO THE POST OFFICE WHEN IT'S THAT CLOSE TO ME?!!!! Now, I will have to wait for the package to be sent to the other local post office and make me wait another day when I could have had this package today... I could have just picked it up lol

This isn't UPS's fault. This is a very basic shipping option (cheaper than ground) that is selected by the SHIPPER at the time the package is shipped. If there is any blame to be dished out, it should be directed at the company you ordered your products from. They have the option to ship fully through UPS, but they don't.

How in the world did the federal government ever get into mail delivery in the first place? Was the pony express somehow run by the government? Was the now corrupt Wells Fargo stage coaches run by the government? It seems anything run by the government is bloated and notoriously inefficient. Typically, it's a home for people who don't have the drive or intellect to get a real job. Which leads me to Amazon Prime. If you don't buy into Prime, you get put on the bottom of the list. This has made me so angry that I avoid buying anything from Amazon. For electronics, I now shop at B&H Photo in NYC.

I ordered an item from Japan and I've had issues getting it here. Amazon says there was a delivery attempt made and they left a door tag but they didn't. People were in the house so there is no way it was attempted or we would have heard the mailman knocking. The carrier of my package isn't even listed on the tracking page.

When I order a package and pay for delivery I am deeply offended when UPS or Fed-Ex sends my package to the post office. It takes TWICE AS LONG and the post office will only make ONE delivery. If I want my package I have to go to the post office if it is delivered when I am not at home and the post office leaves those stupid orange notes. The reason I chose UPS or Fed-Ex is because I do not want to lift those heavy packages and the post office SNAIL mail will eventually deliver them but they never tell you WHEN they will be delivered. Thus I am either held "hostage" in my home for days or eventually go out and the attempted delivery is made. Since I have a note on my door to not leave packages the post office carries the package back to the post office and I am forced to go there if I want my package. The take twice as long as UPS or Fed-Ex.

Guys if you press the Live Chat button on the bottom left of the screen it will send you to a page that says. "Live chat is not available for UPS Surepost packages that have been sent over to USPS." Under this message you will see a tracking number that you can use on the USPS site to track your package.

This has happened to me a few times (I do a lot of online purchasing too) and you are right it always lengthens the delivery time when they transfer to usps. My theory is they quote you a time when you make the purchase via original shipment method, if they can't fulfill that then they pass it off to usps so they cannot be blamed. Or maybe as you said it might be cheaper to them, but this is crappy customer service. I wish there was a way to specify who one wanted to ship through when ordering, I think I would pick Fed Ex every time as I never have any problems with them. Great video.

Blame your shipper for choosing Surepost as a way to deliver your package. UPS just picks them up and deliver. They are not the one that created your label.

Direct Delivery Only (DDO) is a shipping service that ensures a package is delivered to the address on the shipping label and prevents a recipient from rerouting the package to another address. DDO packages are eligible for driver release and are available for residential and commercial addresses.

I have a big problem with ups transferring to usps. Every time this happens to me, I get one of those notices In my mailbox telling me to come to the post office and pick up my package because nobody was home (that's a lie). I live in an area where for some reason usps will not deliver packages that won't fit in the mailbox to my home. The mailboxes are at the end of the road. At least Fedex doesn't do usps transfers as far as I know. I prefer home delivery. By the way, we used to have a nice new usps provided mailbox system with a large container for bigger packages, but a big truck ran it over and It was never replaced.

Total BS:
UPS SurePost
UPS SurePost® is an economy, residential, ground service.

This service combines the consistency and reliability of the UPS Ground network with final delivery typically provided by the U.S. Postal Service.

Note: UPS My Choice® Members can upgrade a UPS SurePost package to UPS Ground for an additional fee. Once upgraded, Members can use the features available with their Membership to reschedule or redirect delivery to an alternate address or to The UPS Store®. Upgraded packages typically arrive one day earlier.

The company that handles UPS' so-called "smart post" product where UPS handles it partway and then hands off to USPS is a horrid product, and the fault is with the company that handles the transfer, called "Neugistics" - I can't accept deliveries from either UPS or Fedex, so sometimes companies that don't offer USPS shipping offer me this, and I refuse, and instead find a different company that does offer direct USPS shipping, with no UPS, Fedex, or Neugistics involved.

The worst thing anyone can see in their tracking is that it's in the hands of the USPS.  This happened to me just last week on a Prime delivery package.  I ordered a pack, battery pack for robot vacuum - less than $50, and the USPS said there was no "secure location" to deliver the package on my front porch. Mind you, I've had multi thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment left on my front porch which is about as secure as you're going to get outside of putting it in my house.  The delivery person never left the note on the window as they are suppose to.  So the day after I don't receive it I check tracking and that's when I discover they didn't deliver for that reason.  So my wife calls the number given and they say it's at the Lehigh Valley Post Office, you need to pick it up there.  My wife drives there and they said its not there, it's at your local Bethlehem Post Office.  My wife then drives over there where they can't locate the package. So I open a call with Amazon, I open an investigation with the USPS, and after another day they call and said they located my package and the the USPS delivery person put it in a hold box for the wrong address on our street.  They said the package would be delivered to our home, and left there.  So 4 days late, I finally received my package.  And yes, this WAS an Amazon Prime delivered package.

I'm just curious. Does it have anything to do with the size of the package? Every time this transfer has happened to me, the package was always able to fit in my mailbox. I've ordered phones, clothes and other small things but I've never had a large package delivered by the usps regardless of the price, type of merchandise, or where I purchased the item. Do you think size is a factor at all?
