We are experiencing wonderful new changes with UPS through the UPS Store. It used to be that you paid extra for Saturday delivery. And to get things delivered on Monday, through UPS, required next day delivery service. And instead of a late-in-the-day pick-up, you had to have the pick up earlier in the day on Saturday.
To see specific details about this program, and how it is being rolled out across the country, click on this UPS link to get the details straight from UPS!
One subtle point to be aware of is that the Saturday delivery is only to residences and strategic businesses like our The UPS Store 5183 in Superior Colorado, and other retail locations across the country. The reasoning here is that many businesses are not open on Saturday and would not benefit from this new service. If your business is open on Saturday, and you would like to take advantage of Saturday delivery, check out your local The UPS Store!
Businesses can take advantage of this service on Saturday by setting up a mailbox rental at a The UPS Store like ours. We receive the packages for you on Saturday and email a delivery confirmation to you notifying your package is in. Just make arrangements to drop by before we close and you can participate in Saturday delivery.
If you don’t want to rent a mailbox, no sweat. You can set up a “Package Only” service with no monthly rental. We still email you a delivery notice. We then hold your package for you. Just bring in your ID, and pay a $5 or $10 fee for each package you pick up. If you receive 5 or more packages per month, the rental is the best option. If you get less, the Package Only option may be best; unless the packages are large and heavy.
Residences in select cities will get Saturday delivery at normal ground pricing. That is because people tend to be home on the weekends.
Another cool feature is that in select cities you can ship ground, in your own state, and it is guaranteed to be delivered to residences by end of day on Saturday instead of Monday! If UPS offers local pick up at select retail locations, like the UPS Store, on Saturdays you may still get it there on Monday by the end of day for ground pricing. Check with your The UPS Store for details.
The UPS System now offers better service and lower costs at 5,000 The UPS Stores in select cities across the US and more to come in 2018! What’s not to like. Bravo UPS and The UPS Stores!
