    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. :D

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

    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.

    No that means it is on the way to your local UPS hub. You will see "Out for Delivery" the day that it will be delivered.

    Ok I tracked my package yesterday and it said it was on its way to its destination so I figured it would arrive today but when I tracked it this morning it still shows that it's on its way to its destination. Why would it say the same thing for 2 days it was originally shipped on the 7th and today is the 13th. Any thoughts on what to do

    That's odd, usually that's there. Well, the only thing you can really do is call them up and ask them for more information (like the planned delivery date).

    And your carrier is UPS? I would call UPS and see what they have to say.

    The finest granularity you'll get is that it will be delivered on the day, no time, other then a no later then perhaps

    Depends upon where it is coming from and where it is going. A lot of UPS stuff now actually gets delivered by the USPS which adds a couple of days at least.
