Priority Mail service through Postalocity is a convenient, cost-effective way for sending important documents in a timely fashion. It is the fastest mail class the USPS offers.

What is the weight limit?

The maximum weight is 70 pounds.

Does the price include insurance?

How fast will my piece be delivered?

Priority Mail service boasts speedy delivery times between 1 and 3 business days. The USPS has a fantastic interactive map you can use to estimate your delivery. Delivery times are based on origin, destination, and drop-off time. They are usually pretty spot-on, but the USPS does not guarantee these time frames.
