post office on hwy 99

We will be driving from Sequoia National Park on a Monday in October, going to the cruise dock in LA. We want to mail our hiking clothes to our home so we don't have to carry on our cruise. Where would the most accessible post office be between Sequoia and LAX? Part of our concern is that we may not reach the post office till after closing hours....so would need to have the option to simply deposit the box of clothes in that "mailing machine" option that is in many postoffices. Hopefully someone knows the answer to this tedious question!

There is a UPS customer center in Bakersfield, probably a better option than USPS:

There's a post office in Visalia on your way out of Sequoia:

I'd probably suggest a different Visalia post office location. The Acequia office is in downtown Visalia which limits the close-in parking availability if you have to unload/carry your gear.

Instead try the Akers Avenue post office in Visalia. It is in an office complex adjacent to the Akers offramp of Freeway 198 with plenty of off-street parking close to the door.

Take the Akers Avenue exit off Freeway 198, turn north (right) at the signal light. Go 1/10th mile and turn right at the next signal light. The post office is adjacent to the driveway.
