    USPS will always get your packages there rain, sleet, snow or sunday’s, or any other reason they deliver and will make sure you get your package’s at whatever the cost, you can alway’s depend on them, wouldn’t use any other carrier for my service and maybe you will think twice next time while trying to avoid the government service you are ruling out the best service out there, think about it next time because you know the Postal Service Delivers.
