Scheduling a pickup tells the Postal Service letter carrier who services your address you’ll have packages ready, and that they should attempt to pick them up when they drop off your mail on the next business day. You can expect them around the time of day they usually drop your mail off.
To schedule a free pickup from USPS®, navigate to the "Ship" page and look for the blue "Schedule a Pickup" button.
From there, simply click Request Pickup > USPS® to be routed to this page:
Here, you can toggle between your saved Ship From Addresses to select the Pickup Location you'd like USPS® to use. You can also inform your letter carrier where the packages will be left with the next drop-down bar. Following that, you'll want to note the amount of packages you have per service, along with the combined Estimated Total Weight (lbs) of all packages included in the pickup.
For example, if Davey Jones is shipping 3 packages with the Priority Mail Cubic service, 2 packages with the First Class Package service, and 1 package using the Simple Export Rate service, he would enter in:
Priority Count: 3
Intl Count: 1
First Class Count: 2
*Pro Tip: If you need to schedule a pickup for a specific date & time instead of a next-day pickup, you can do this directly with USPS® for a $23 fee: https://www.usps.com/pickup
