Mail Delivery Timing
Your question: How long would it take a standard letter to reach Heiskell, TN from Farmington, MO?
Our answer: This answer comes to us from mailing expert Jerry Snyder of Transcontinental Direct, one of the country’s leading direct mail production facilities.
First Class mail should take between 1-3 days. Standard Class (Bulk) depends on how big and dense the mail is. Dense means that you are saturating any given area, such as mailing to every single home in a given county. For larger, very dense mailings the mailer would have taken the mail to the local Sectional Center Facility (SCF) or Bulk Mail Center (BMC) and it would take 2 days for trucking and then 3-5 days for the post office. If it was a very small mailing that was entered into the local TN post office it could take 1-2 weeks.
So, although it’s pretty tough to pinpoint an exact time, hopefully these guidelines will help you estimate delivery times. The US Postal Service is another great resource for these types of questions: www.usps.com.
Please let us know if we can answer anything else. Good luck with your mailing!
