    I know a little old lady out in Nikiski and she said that UPS just decided one day to not deliver to her home as well. She has a paved driveway, is flat, and always plowed. Makes her drive to the PO to pick up her packages. That should be against the law. I agree, UPS is the worst!

    UPS is the worst for me.<br/>They have a driver who refuses to deliver to my parents house in Kasilof.<br/>I told them last time I had to go to Kenai to get a package that was sent there that they should fire the gal but they don't care.<br/>She's afraid of their road. Even in the middle of summer when it's not icy or muddy!<br/>What a joke!<br/><br/>Sent from my S41 using Tapatalk<br/><br/>

    Yes, I noticed that the delivery time for parcels has increased significantly. In the summer and early autumn, in my opinion, it was faster. And now it's kind of long. Maybe this is due to Christmas and the New Year?

    It's been a mix for me.<br/>Some things on time and some delayed or very delayed.<br/>I do know some vendors have posted that it's taking longer to fill the orders which can cause added delay.<br/>I had some small snowmachine parts that the usps said were delivered to my box that certainly were not. I had ordered while on the slope at work.<br/>Ended up finding my local dealer had the part.<br/>Then a few days later the part I ordered was in my po box.<br/>I'm guessing the usps misdelivered them and they got turned in and put in my correct box the second time around.<br/><br/>Sent from my S41 using Tapatalk<br/><br/>

    USPS has been the same-old same-old great service for us, both with their shipments and Amazon's that are turned over to USPS for final delivery. UPS and FedEx seem a little slower but not enough to be a concern.

    I recently ordered some tires and wheels for my garden cart from Amazon. They showed up faster than I expected. But I have other things on order that are being shipped usps that seem to have been lost.

    All shipping options have become terribly slow. USPS is probably the worst.

    I've been buying wheeler parts consistently over the last several months off ebay. Transit via USPS has been normal. About a week from the states to Eagle River. However, my wife has been complaining about how long Amazon orders take to ship in.

    Iíve ordered quite a few tools from various eBay sellers lately with normal delivery times via US Postal. Stuff from Amazon not shipped from a reseller is brutally slow. My suspicion is that itís only a matter of time before Amazon is delivering directly everywhere like they do in cities, bypassing the mail, UPS and FedEx. In Seattle often times an order placed in the morning shows up via the Amazon truck that afternoon. That is of course if they can get past the protesters.

    Wondering if many of you are finding that it's taking an extremely long time now to get packages delivered after ordering? Some to the point that it's like they're lost. When you look at tracking, it just continually says "in transit." The same for many of you?

    Also, been waiting to get eyeglasses for a month now when it usually takes two weeks or less. Wife has been waiting for contacts for almost two months now.
