Hi all, anyone know if another house is built on same property as an established house, are they required to add another box? (I.e: Labeled as Apt A) It’s is being used to house farm workers, which are getting mail and pkgs under different name than the resident.

I had two houses on the same property that shared one box. The mother was in the back and her two sons were up front. My supervisor was aware of it and didn't have a problem with it.

Required as in policy...?

If the customer wants to use one box, give them a stack of forms to update residents as required.

In their shoes, I'd add the "A" box to keep mail separate from someone that's not family.

After reviewing this matter, we mutually agree that no national interpretive issue is fairly presented in this case.

This is the problem, we are having to borrow subs and would be much easier name wise to have two separate boxes. With all the names it’s a mess. Also the help are getting pkgs that need a signature. Well wandering around a muddy farm looking for the owner of the pkg has gotten old real fast. Would just like to go to their house and knock on the door like a normal customer.

Sounds like you are either going to ask the customer to put up another box or, you are getting push back about putting one up. Either way, with one box, all mail goes in the box and the front door of the dwelling associated with the mailbox is the only location on the farm for parcels and signature items. If whoever is at that home won't or can't sign for them, I'd leave notice.

We are NOT required to search for the person whose name is on the package. If it’s restricted & that person is not readily available, leave a notice. If person at the door is an adult but refuses to sign, leave a notice. Anyone can sign for a package at the property except for RESTRICTED pkgs.

Any amount of names can be in one box, as with a big business, only up to 5 different forwards can be put in from one box. After that that "business " must do their own forwards. Most likely this customer will only use one box. Usually to obtain another address from the county enables the county to collect more property taxes for that property. Mail and parcels go to one place as noted on (what I call) the locator card.

I have a farm on my route, has migrant housing, much of the mail for them is addressed
to the farm office. That is where I attempt all deliveries.

I am Not searching all over the unmarked migrant camp to find someone who doesn't even have
a separate address. One man called in to complain that I wasn't delivering his packages to his house!
(You don't have a mailbox, ace.) They were medication from Mexico. I told the clerk
who asked me about it that I'm not going back there with that man's foreign Viagra.😌

With the farm's agreement, I have started leaving items requiring signature from field
workers at the p.o., and put a notice in with mail, so they get the chance to get it
that day, if they pick it up at lunch, or after work. If I try to bring it to the office for them,
there's virtually no chance they'll get it the first day. Much of it is food from home.

Items that need a signature, you go to the closest home to the box. If they say "over there" you go back to box and leave notice. Same thing for parcels that are door porch drop. Nearest home to mail box the item goes.

You are not paid to play "WHERE'S WALDO?" when doing mail delivery.

You sure put the Ace of Lace in his place.
