Here is proof from FedEx's own web page "Shipping to a Home": http://www.fedex.com/us/fedex/shippingservices/package/ It clearly states: Delivery to 100 percent of U.S. Hello Thomas - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This particular article was written some years ago and ShippingEasy's access to FedEx services have changed since then.
According to the site that you quoted, FedEx SmartPost can deliver to P.O. However, I haven't found any evidence that other domestic services support P.O. This document from FedEx clearly states (on page 4): Do not list a P.O. box in certain international locations, including Puerto Rico, but you must provide a valid telephone, fax, or telex number. We've updated our own article to better reflect which FedEx services available through ShippingEasy support P.O. Namely, that FedEx Smart Post can deliver to domestic post offices. This is due primarily to the fact that Smart Post employs the USPS system in the final leg of delivery. YES, all address in the US Fedex can ship to INCLUDING PO BOXES.
FEDEX by law cannot hand deliver the shipment into a US post office themselves. Post office has employees come by fedex everyday to pickup packages for the post office zip codes including po boxes. ONLY the US Post office employee as FINAL delivery can hand deliver fedex shipments into a US Post office box. Hello Cillian - Thanks for reaching out to clear up any remaining confusion. In my previous post and update of the article, I believe that I've stated that FedEx can deliver to domestic P.O. SmartPost is the service that you have described, whereby FedEx initiates the shipping process, and then hands the package over to USPS for final delivery. If I have misstated any information, I would be happy to correct it. Would you please clarify which of my statements are incorrect? PO Box delivery is only available for orders of books or magazines shipping to the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We don't ship to PO boxes in any other country or region besides these. If you're shipping to a post office box in the US, Canada, Australia or New Zealand, select This is a PO Box when you create or edit an address. When this box is checked your order will be delivered via the local postal service. Shipping to a PO Box may limit your shipping options at check-out. To see more shipping options uncheck the PO box and use a valid street address instead. A note to our international users: a post office box, PO box, POB, or postbox is a locked, rented container from which the recipient can receive and remove mail. A PO box is usually located within a post office and you pay money for it. It's NOT the mail box located in your house or flat. Adequate surface preparation is a vital prerequisite for ensuring the quality and longevity of metal coatings. Without proper preparation, even the most advanced metal coating technologies will fail. To turn your first metal paint job into a successful experience, we invite you to check the next five steps to preparing metal for paint. To properly prepare new metal surfaces, use mineral spirits to remove grease and apply a rust-inhibitive primer before painting. For painted surfaces that are in sound condition, remove dust with a clean, dry cloth, de-gloss the surface with light sanding, and wipe with mineral spirits to ensure good adhesion. To remove persistent dirt, wash surfaces with a mild detergent solution or with a commercial product recommended for cleaning painted surfaces. If the old paint is in poor condition, you can remove it by hand wire brushing, sanding, or scraping.
Since these methods are labor intensive and usually fail to deliver the results expected, many professionals opt for power tool cleaning, which can help remove paint quickly and easily. However, one drawback of using power tools is that they can polish metal surfaces, potentially causing paint-adhesion problems. When preparing metal for paint, checking for rust is important to make sure that the paint will adhere properly to the surface. To restore lightly rusted metal surfaces to their original state, use a brush to clean off loose rust, sand the area, and apply a high-quality rust-inhibitive primer (e.g. Also known as rust converters, rust-inhibitive primers can be used to cover rusted spots and turn them into non-rusting, paintable surfaces. To repair holes and dents, sand the area until you reach bare metal and wipe with a degreaser mixed with mineral spirits. For small holes and dents, inject an appropriate epoxy-based composite directly into the hole and/or dent.
For larger holes, apply epoxy filler to the edge of the hole, cut a piece of fiberglass mesh approximately one inch larger than the hole, and press it into the filler. Then, cover the mesh with epoxy, working your way from the edge toward the center of the hole.
