What happens if I put a UPS package in a USPS box?
This just happened to me recently and it s been the worst experience of my life. I accidentally dropped my UPS package in a USPS mailbox and it s been almost a week and I still don t know where my package is. I tried calling USPS, I went to the post office directly and even caught the mailman in my neighborhood and they all give me 3 different answers. When I called USPS, they said USPS will deliver the package for you. When I went to the USPS post office, they said USPS will ask UPS to pick it up at the station and UPS will pick it up whenever they get around to it. When I asked the mailman he said, USPS will route the package back to you. OH MY GOD?! How is this so disorganized and complicated? It s a simple mistake and I m sure I m not the only that has done this. I can t believe how difficult it s been to get my package location and no one at USPS seems to know what actually happens!

If UPS said that they would take care of it then give them a few days. They are probabley very busy with the holiday shipping time & have a backlog of deliveries.

It will get back to you eventually. I did the same thing very recently. But I was fortunate enough to catch the mail man when he emptied it.

You have to remember that it is Christmas time and that a mailing mistake like that could set you back by two or three days , i would just wait this one out, if the USPS said that thy would take care of it then i am sure that thy have some procedures that thy follow when thy encounter these types of things. P.S. Merry Christmas!

i would call the post ofice again and ask. it might take a long time because since its holiday season the post offices are supposed to b backed up i've ordered something 2 weeks ago and its shipping from INDIANA and i live in CHICAGO i still havnt got it. I doubt it matter about the box if they said they'll take care of it.

Do you have the UPS tracking number? If you do, try tracking it on the UPS site.

If you put the correct postage on it and gave it to the correct carrier (by dropping it at a UPS site, etc.), it should be OK. And, yes, depending on HOW you shipped it (2nd day, regular, etc.), it can take a while. After all, it IS the Christmas season and LOTS of boxes are going out right now! Good luck!

They will send it back or leave it at the post office as if it was abandoned.
