My order said Free Shipping, why are you charging me?
WQS is not affiliated with your seller. WQS charges a handling fee to use the USA address, receive, and hold your package which is not included in your seller's shipping. The fees at WQS cover the use of your USA address at WQS. By using WQS address you agree to our terms of service.
My order says my parcel has arrived in Colville, why isn't it here?
Items will show “signed by” and “Delivered to Agent” when they are at WQS. WQS is not the Colville Post Office, WQS is a privately owned commercial mail receiving agency. Once items arrive, WQS needs time to scan, log, sticker, and sort every item.
My order says it was delivered today, can I pick it up?
WQS Staff needs time to process; daily received items are not in our system until we sort, log, sticker, and place each item in our warehouses. Multiple carriers complete daily deliveries ranging from 50-400 items—every day. Please wait until the following day of the delivery notification from the carrier or seller.
EXPEDITE- $5 in addition to the receiving fee.
DURING HEAVY RECEIVING DAYS EXPEDITES ARE NOT AVAILABLE
Please message in advance if you expect to “expedite.”
FedEx Express is exempt from this policy
Express arrives “around 4:30 PM” daily
I don’t have a customer number yet, do I have to drive there first?
NO, complete your online shopping without a customer number and register when you come down to pick up your first delivery. Just make sure to use your name NOT “Waneta Quick Stop.”
Why wouldn't I write Waneta Quick Stop?
WQS has over 3000 registered customers using “their USA address.” By using WQS address you agree to our terms of service which provides your own private USA address. You are shipping your order to You, NOT to the Waneta Quick Stop.
Do you take Canadian money?
Yes, at the current daily local exchange rate, based on the rate at which our USA financial institution will purchase it. Your rate will always be better at your financial institution
Why are you charging me Postage Due?
The USPS inspects all its deliveries, sometimes their reasoning is due to the shipper using the wrong packaging, or entering the incorrect dimensions/weight. Postage Due is assessed by the USPS. WQS will “front” amounts up to $10 for our customer's convenience. WQS never charges any markup or fee for Postage Due Loans.
Why are you upset and charging me because I am meeting the delivery driver on the street and don't want to pay WQS?
By using WQS address you agree to WQS Terms Of Service. When items are ordered and WQS address is used for the order we charge a fee to use our address, that is the business model. When people use WQS address and attempt to avoid paying the fee it is considered stealing. People caught stealing from WQS will be “trespassed” from WQS by filing a report with the Stevens County Sheriff stating this person is no longer welcome because of theft. Once a person is reported as trespassed if they attempt to visit the store they may be arrested for “trespass”. Three trespass violations in the US and there may be an issue crossing the border.

PARCEL AND FREIGHT FEES
A handling fee is assessed to each individual shipment (parcel or pallet please see cashier for current fee schedules). To save WQS handling fees, request your seller combine your order into one shipment. No Refunds.
The WQS family does not have any affiliation with your sellers, WQS is a family owned and operated independent small business.
“Free shipping” advertised by your seller does not include the WQS handling fees. Your seller does not know who WQS is, we are simply YOUR USA Address.
WQS is not reimbursed by your seller for anything. WQS does not know what your order contains or how many orders you have in your items that are expected to arrive. WQS does not receive order numbers or confirmations from your sellers.
MAKE CERTAIN TO BRING YOUR TRACKING NUMBERS AND TAKE INVENTORY OF YOUR PICKUP BEFORE YOU LEAVE WQS TO ENSURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU EXPECTED.
Original handling fees are paid at time of partial pick up. Any Items left behind are logged in as a new item with a new fee.
As space is limited, there is a storage fee added for each PARCEL not picked up within 14 days. The fee shall match the handling fee of the item(s) for each additional week’s storage.
After 60 days the parcel shall be considered Abandoned if not claimed and become the property of Waneta Quick Stop.
FREIGHT STORAGE FEES
Due to limited space, Storage fees begin after 72 hours at 50% of the assessed receiving fee per day thereafter.
Freight pickups requiring forklift must be scheduled in advance with WQS Staff via email or messenger. Often pallet moving around the warehouse is time consuming and your pallet may not be in front.
If you have not contacted WQS in writing to claim your items, pay receiving fees, make storage arrangements, and your package has not been picked up after 60 days, it shall be considered abandoned. All items not claimed within 60 days of receipt by WQS shall be considered abandoned and become the property of Waneta Quick Stop.
If a parcel arrives with visible damage to the packaging WQS Staff will note it and notify you at pickup. WQS is not responsible for any damage.
Oversized, unusual shaped, cold storage parcels will be charged an additional handling fee. Parcels that require storage in a special place will warrant an additional charge.
NO NAMES - PACKAGES SHIPPED WITHOUT A NAME OR PART OF A NAME
WQS Staff does everything possible to find the owner of NO NAME parcels however if unable to locate identifying information, which includes opening the package to look for paperwork, the package will be considered an Abandoned Parcel and will be subject to the 60 day condition. Always bring the tracking number to identify NO NAME items. NO NAME items are logged as WQS with the tracking number.
Always bring your carrier tracking numbers.
SHORT TERM PARKING
Waneta Quick Stop is not responsible to secure vehicles or equipment parked in the insecure short term parking area. WQS will not be held liable for any damage which may occur while parked on the premises.

If you do ship such items without insurance you do so at your own risk.
WQS is registered with the USPS as a CMRA, Commercial Mail Receiving Agency.
All customers must be registered and have a complete 1583 on file authorizing WQS to receive your USPS shipments. On October 30, 2019 The United States Postal Service strongly suggested that WQS CMRA Agents are required to return ALL insufficiently addressed parcels to the US Postal Service mail carrier upon receipt to return to sender. Insufficient address means missing your PMB number, incorrect PMB number, and incorrect name such as the NO NAMES that arrive addressed to Waneta Quick Stop as interpreted by the United States Postal Service.
All customers are required to register and provide two forms of ID (by the US Postal Service) and sign a US Postal Service Form 1583 in duplicate.
Photocopy of ID is retained by agent for verification. One original is sent to the USPS and the other is filed with the CMRA in a secure location.
Per the form 1583, the applicant must execute the form 1583 in duplicate in the presence of the agent, his or her authorized employee, or a notary public.
The agent provides the original completed signed PS Form 1583 to the Postal Service and retains a duplicate completed signed copy at the CMRA business location.
The CMRA copy of PS Form PS 1583 must at all times be available for examination by the postmaster (or designee) and the Postal Inspection Service.
The addressee and the agent agree to comply with all applicable Postal Service rules and regulations relative to delivery of mail through an agent. Failure to comply will subject the agency to withholding of mail from delivery until corrective action is taken.
The application may be subject to verification procedures by the Postal Service to confirm that the applicant resides or conducts business at the home or business address listed in boxes 7 or 10, and that the identification listed in box 8 is valid.
Form 1583 USPS Privacy Act Statement: Your information will be used to authorize the delivery of your mail to the designated addressee (the CMRA) as your agent. Collection is authorized by 39 USC 401, 403, and 404. Providing the information is voluntary, but if not provided, USPS cannot provide this service to you. USPS does not disclose your information without your consent to third parties, except for the following limited circumstances: to a congressional office on your behalf; to financial entities regarding financial transaction issues; to a USPS auditor; to entities, including law enforcement, as required by law or in legal proceedings; to contractors and other entities aiding us to fulfill the service; and for the purpose of identifying an address as an address of an agent who receives mail on behalf of other persons. Information concerning an individual who has filed an appropriate protective court order with the postmaster will not be disclosed except pursuant to court order. For more information on USPS privacy policies, see their privacy link on www.usps.com.
The USPS has strict address format requirements that your seller may not be aware of. Please ensure you have reviewed the “USPS Address Format” FAQ available at the parcel desk or cashier.
