Do you feel like mail service is reliable here in Colorado? Based on personal experience, I feel like my mail comes in extremely slowly.

I send a bill out once a month and it typically takes up to 10 days for the business to receive and deposit the money.

We hope and wish that when we send or receive mail that it will be received not only on time, but we also hope that our mail will not be lost. If you have your mail lost in Colorado, just know that many Coloradans deal with it as well.
