For some reason, each and every year we come across people asking “Does the mail run on July 4th?”, even though 4th of July is one of the most cherished America’s holidays, which has over 240 years of tradition behind it and commemorates the Declaration of Independence of the United States. Prepare yourself, as you’re standing at the threshold of discovering whether you can receive your mail on 4th of July, since now we’re here to give an ultimate answer to this eternal question.

Is there mail on July 4th?

The answer depends on the delivery company and the type of service you use, but the most common answer is no. Since this is a holiday for general public, most carrier companies do not provide any services except for critical mail delivery. Unfortunately, in no way is there mail on July 4th if you’ve paid for any other type of delivery service. Most postal offices are closed as well, so plan your visits accordingly.

Was there mail delivery 4th of July 2018?

Much like every other year, the working schedule of most carriers was affected by this holiday be it office hours, deliveries or dispatches. For most American companies that provide mail delivery 4th of July 2018 was a day off. The only things they did bring to recipients on that day were critical mail pieces. Post offices were closed for the day, or, in rare cases, were open for a short time during the day. That’s why if you’re awaiting mail around this date, it’s better to manage your deliveries so that in no way does the mail run on July 4th affect them.
