USPS is circling the drain financially - news articles are easy to find. This causes their service to be less than stellar. Many sorting facilities are being closed and certain areas and routes will be serviced less often.

I have switched to Fedex and UPS only when I order products and items as USPS is too unreliable. Not only have shipments arrived very late, often parcels have been ruined by rough handling. Don't ever try claiming from them for losses, ask me how I know....
