As if you needed anymore reason to be soooo done with 2020... The United States Postal Service has announced delivery service impacts due to "unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19."
Our promise to you still stands, and we will continue to print and mail via USPS First Class any checks submitted for fulfillment before 4pm EST, Monday through Friday. While the expected delivery time for First Class mail is 1-4 days, we unfortunately have no control of how quickly your packages are delivered after they are received by the post office. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.
If you need a check delivered pronto, we do have express shipping options, including UPS Next Day Air and USPS Priority mail. While these mail methods do come with a little added cost, you may find it worth having a tracking number and a firm estimate of when your checks and/or documents will be delivered.
We sincerely appreciate your patience, and we're all longing for normality. Please bear with us, and don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have.
The Checkeeper Team
It seems there's no end in sight yet. The U.S. Postal Service is still digging themselves out of the avalanche of holiday season parcels and packages; COVID-19 is still impacting employee availability; post offices across the country are still facing unprecedented volume increases; and operational changes designed to limit costs are contributing to the delays.
But don't lose hope! You can still guarantee that any checks and files you submit before 4pm EST will still be mailed the same day via First Class mailing. And if you need to rush a payment, we also offer expedited and overnight shipping options as well.
Once again, thank you for your continued support and patience, both with Checkeeper and with the U.S. Postal Service. We'll be monitoring the situation daily and will continue to do our best to keep all our 'Keepers in the know.
