When you have a package to post quickly, Priority Mail will ensure it gets delivered as quickly as the next day depending on whereabouts the delivery address is. Even more remote locations can be delivered to in 1-3 days, so for small important packages, the Post Office is often still the best choice. Unlike some other courier services, USPS doesn’t add surcharges for residential delivery or delivery to out-of-the-way places. Our shipping calculator will show you the correct price that you will need to pay to post your package based on the details you give us, so as long as you are accurate with the details, the price we display will be totally accurate.
What is USPS Priority Mail?
The US Postal Service’s Priority Mail is a quick yet economical way to mail packages under 70 pounds within the United States. When large envelopes or packages are going to be too heavy to ship via First-Class Mail, Priority Domestic is the next best thing for price and transit time.
Posting a package in the USA is easy to do using the Post Office, as there are so many locations to drop into and the services are cheap and simple to use. Our customers love using USPS rates for their reliability and also as they can offer a delivery service to almost any doorstep across the entire country. When you book a USPS Priority Mail service via the Parcel Monkey shipping calculator, you can opt-in for free protection cover up or pay a small fee and insure your package up to $1000. The USPS Post Office make deliveries Monday to Friday before 5 pm but you should always provide a contact number for the recipient in case the courier needs to contact them.
How to book Domestic USPS Priority Mail with Parcel Monkey
It is very simple to use our USPS shipping calculator to arrange a Domestic Priority Mail delivery. Rather than heading directly to the Post Office to pay for the shipping and put the items in a box, package your box up at home ready to get a price. Once it is packaged, all you need to do is provide us with the size and weight of your package plus the delivery address information and we will calculate the best price for you, which enables you to know exactly how much you are going to need to pay. This is useful if you sell online, and you need the customer to pay the shipping fees as you can invoice them the costs.
The USPS has split the country into nine “zones”, and charges more as the distance between you and your package’s destination increases. Our USPS shipping calculator will factor this in when providing you with a quote so you get an accurate price.
Add the service to the basket and checkout, then we will send you the shipping labels to print off and attach to the outside of the package. Then you can drop off at your local Post Office at a time that suits you and the USPS will then handle the shipping and delivery of your package. You can still access all the tracking information and share this with the recipient too.
USPS Priority Mail Domestic Weight Limits
USPS Priority Mail or USPS Priority Domestic as it appears on our shipping calculator allows you to ship packages that weigh up to 70lbs, so most items can be shipped with no issue at all. Often USPS Parcel Select is a better value service for bigger boxes or some of our other Ground shipping services. Not only this, if it is difficult to get a large heavy box to the local Post Office, a Pickup option might be better.
