We have excellent working and personal relationships with our carriers and their drivers here at the Mailbox Ballard. They show up day-in, day-out without fail; rarely late and never absent, we rely on their diligence and hard work to get your packages and mail to and from their destinations on time.
Adhering to a tight schedule and working a largely thankless job, the drivers for these carriers often do not get the opportunity to personally engage with clients at residences around the neighborhood. You may miss out on some of the satisfaction that we get here at the Mailbox of getting to know these folks we see daily.
We thought it would be fun to profile each carrier in the coming days to give you a sense of who these dedicated individuals are and maybe when you see them around the neighborhood next you’ll be inclined to wave or strike up a conversation.
