Shipping Hacks to Continue Receiving Your Vape Mail

5 comments

If you live in the United States, by now you've probably experienced your share of confusion and frustration regarding the newly-passed PACT ACT. The primary focus of the legislation is to further prevent underage individuals from accessing or ordering tobacco and vape products; but for those of legal age, there are now several new hoops to jump through to receive your order.

Because an adult signature is now required before USPS, UPS, or FedEx can surrender your package, mail carriers now have an additional duty on their plate, meaning the cost of shipping is forced to increase. But that's not even the most inconvenient part - now you have to stay home all day waiting to sign for your vape package? Actually, you don't!

With more and more people returning to work every day, often one simply cannot wait around for their delivery. Here are the four top tips to receive your vape mail on time if you don't have the option of waiting to sign. Bear in mind that not all of these options are feasible for everyone, but anything to make your shipping experience a little easier is worth considering.

4. Use a Business Address

If your workplace allows employees to use their address for personal purposes (like UberEats or online shopping), this is a perfect opportunity for you to be present if your vape mail gets delivered during business hours! You may not even have to leave your desk if your office has a receptionist.

3. Apartment Mail Services

Many apartment complexes offer package delivery in their front office to avoid clutter in their communal package mailbox. It's worth inquiring at the desk whether or not deliveries requiring adult signature can be taken care of there.

Some complexes also offer locker systems for their residents to privately receive packages to avoid theft. For the most part, these locker systems require a sign-up to begin use. The sign-up confirms your age and is automatically considered an adult signature by many mail carriers.

2. Neighbors, Family, and Friends

An important thing to remember when arranging your adult signature is that it doesn't necessary have to be you signing for it, just an adult with ID. Consider this if you have elderly neighbors or retired family nearby that are typically home during the day - or friends currently teleworking. With their permission, you can address the package to their residence and grab it from them after work. Now you really have no excuse not to visit your parents!

If there are adult residents in your own household, such as a spouse, roommate, or adult child, they too can sign for your delivery. Remember, it doesn't have to be you, just an adult over 21.

1. Use A PO Box

Here's a clever idea if the previous hacks aren't possible for you. If there is a PO Box or private mail locker business in your area, reserve a box and use their business address with your box number to ship your package. Make sense? Here is an example of how to complete this address, using a random UPS private mailbox service in San Francisco, California. (The X's indicate where you'd enter your own box number).

Final Thoughts

If none of these solutions work for you, it may be wise to stock up on vape supplies if you anticipate having to deal with redelivery attempts or the dreaded trip to the post office pick-up line. Having disposable vapes on-hand can be helpful if your e-liquid bottles are looking a little low, and Innokin GoMax disposable tanks are a super-cheap back-up solution for kit users. They have a 5.5ml juice capacity and built-in coils - a great option while you wait on your replacements.

    I am a customer trying to buy for MY own personal use first of all. When I get on your site it says it ships to my location but when I try to complete my order it tells me you don’t ship to my location. And sometimes it will say items in my cart won’t ship I have tried to remove everything 1 by 1 except the juice because that is what I really need and would use you from now on if you carry my Beard 32. Please tell me what I can do to get orders shipped to me. I usually spend much more because I like to try new things. Thank you.

    Why do I have to pay for adult signature but I haven’t had to sign for a package yet? And to top it off I ordered 5 days ago and my order still hasn’t shipped. I do believe this is the last time buying from you if this nonsense continues

    I’ve ordered on line from stores that say USPS is not yet requiring adult signature. Delivery was no problem.

    I attempted to place an order from your company but the website told me that you don’t deliver to New York any more. What can I do to get my vape supplies?
