How long do UPS usually take to deliver once theyre 'Out for delivery'?

I got my tracking number early this morning and the status is as follows;

MANCHESTER, GB 22/07/2010 6:45 OUT FOR DELIVERY

MANCHESTER, GB 22/07/2010 5:15 ARRIVAL SCAN

TAMWORTH, GB 22/07/2010 3:06 DEPARTURE SCAN

TAMWORTH, GB 22/07/2010 1:11 ORIGIN SCAN


Does this mean it will come today?

thankyouu

Yeah it will be there today. It really depends on where you live for what time of day it will actually arrive. My packages usually get here around 5pm.

Out for Delivery means it is on the truck.

Here in the states, if they miss a delivery (for example, because you're at work), then you can sometimes call up customer service and have them drop it off at a UPS store before the driver returns to the depot.

They used to let you drive to the depot to pick up your stuff (a few years ago), but they seem to have changed their policy.

As other users said, it means it's out for delivery!

It varies depending on location, but UPS doesn't deliver until around 4:00-4:30 here.

Glad you love your new toy.

This is incorrect. Once it's listed as Out for Delivery it takes 4H:37M:42S before you are signing for it. If it takes even one second more the UPS driver is fired that evening.

Just checked my tracking information through UPS:

DALLAS/FT. WORTH A/P, TX, US 07/22/2010 8:14 A.M. OUT FOR DELIVERY

Only problem is shipped to address is Brooklyn NY. If Out for Delivery means it is on the truck, then hopefully it's on a truck to the airport...

www.simpletracking.com is a little bit more accurate than what UPS and FedEx actually have.


Also, to answer your question, if it hasn't been already answered, it depends.

Actual delivery time usually depends on how far you are located from the UPS warehouse. Of course the drivers use certain routes on their deliveries and if you are out of the way then you might be one of the last places the driver hits.
