Move a Mail Box !

Hello: I have a neighbor senior that wants to move her mailbox to the end of drive way rather that 1/3 mile away. This lady either has to drive to get mail or walk and during the summer it is hard on her health.The post office says it would take to long for the route person to deliver at another stop even though is on same side as before and has a straight clear area to stop at. How does this problem get help?

Have you spoken with the person who delivers the mail?  If you already have - then, how about the postmaster?  Usually, most effective in person.

Best idea. Also, how much mail (personal, not "junk") does this person actually receive, I wonder?

 

I HATE all the ads when I check my USPS mail; I have signed up with all ad agencies to "opt out" but still mailbox is stuffed; mail person must think I'm lazy, but I do everything electronically, so only end of year must mail statements are required.

 

Anyway, hope your neighbor considers no mail a good thing, and maybe someone could walk it up to her 3 or 4 times a week (if they don't mind the junk mail ink).

Seems like a reasonable request to me, @sheepmilk14. The US Postal Service has a facebook page. Maybe you could try sending them a message via https://www.facebook.com/USPS/?
