How to choose a shipping carrier in the U.S.

Dear Clients!

When ordering goods from US online stores, you should carefully choose the best and most reliable shipping carrier that will quickly and safely deliver your order to Meest-America’s warehouse.

Let's get to know the most popular carriers in the USA.

USPS:

+     Has a longstanding reputation for delivering on-time despite inclement weather conditions

+     Offers flat rate boxes through their Priority Mail service, making it a cost-effective option

+     Only courier service that can deliver to P.O. boxes and mailboxes

-     Generally seen as less reliable shipping carrier, especially in terms of tracking packages

-     Parcels are not scanned by company courier upon delivery to our warehouse

Please note!

Choosing a courier delivery, you should carefully review information about them and learn all their advantages and disadvantages.

Sincerely,
Meest-America Team.
