Shipping Items to San Diego

Hello,

Not to sure if this is the correct spot for this but I saw no where else for it to go.

I am on travelling south from Canada and am in need of some sailing equipment, cheap used blocks. And found some on ebay I was hoping to buy but I have no where to ship them to. Does anyone know if you can do general delivery in the USA, or if there is a location, or marina that does not mind getting a package sent to them?

Thanks,

Andrwe

Re: Shipping Items to San Diego

Yes, the USPS offers General Delivery services.

Determine which post office will hold your mail. There is a designated post office in each town that will hold general mail. If you're in a small city with only one post office, that is where your mail will be held. But if you are in a larger city, you must find which post office handles general mail. Visit or call any post office for this information.

Tell all your contacts that you will be using general delivery. Your mail should be addressed as follows: your name, "general delivery," and the town where you want to pick up your mail. For example, if you're staying in San Diego, California, your mail should be addressed as:
John Doe
USPS General Delivery
2701 MIDWAY DR
San Diego, CA 92138-9999

Visit the post office to collect your mail. You'll have to show and ID. A current passport, driver's license or state ID will do.

Let the post office know if you won't be able to collect the mail within 30 days, the length of time mail is normally held. As added insurance that your mail will be held, have your mailed labelled "Hold for Delivery."

Thank you.

The address you gave for San Diego, is that actually the correct place to get the mail shipped to in that town? Save me visiting a post office

An alternate, that is even closer, if you are in the Point Loma section of San Diego Bay, is this: https://tools.usps.com/go/POLocatorD...ces=&&&&&&&&&&
