    Hey guys, new here.

    I have been using the ups service for months, and i have a question regarding my package status.
    It says: TENDERED TO LOCAL POST OFFICE

    What does it mean? and how long does it take to delivery?
    The package just reached the location yesterday...Im sorry for my ignorance on this. :disappointed:
  2. I would guess the next day, however it is the P.O. :)

    charli3, your package was sent using our Basic service. We carry it from warehouse to Post Office and they will deliver it to your home. It is normally the following day.

    that means we (UPS) delivered your package to the post office today. you should get your package with tomorrows mail.

    Good luck with this, I had a package come this way from FedEx.. the driver actually made a stop right next door the same day.... later my package found its way to the post office, no big deal right, this was 3 weeks ago. No one can tell me what has happened it seems to be gone forever...

    ...and this is the part of Basic (or Smart Post) that I dislike. It is not a big issue in the city as we deliver most of the Basic packages but is a big deal in the country. I can recall many times driving by a house or even having other pkgs for that house but being unable to deliver their Basics directly to them. I would bring these to the Post Office only to have them turn around and deliver them the following day.

    Also, the tracking sucks. I was tracking one once, and it said it was delivered to an address in my town. I thought it was misdelivered because it gave no indication it was delivered to the PO.
