If I create a FedEx account?
It depends on the company your package is coming from. Some allow it but typically you won't have that option until they make at least one delivery attempt.
I ordered from Verizon, I've read they disallow that option for whatever reason, but need confirmation on this.
No signature required this year by FedEx, apparently.
Does this mean the trucks will drop the package on your doorstep if nobody is there to receive it?
If no signature is required then they leave it at your front door. Seems odd they aren’t requiring a signature for something of that value.
Right. I was going to say in my last post...this means there will only be ONE delivery attempt. That attempt will be done with since the phone will be dropped off, meaning there will not be a later option to hold at facility.
Correct but from what I’ve seen UPS is requiring a signature for them so it will be different depending on the carrier.
Call them tonight. They're more helpful on the phone than anywhere else, and they're 24 hours. Explain what you're trying to do and see what they allow. I would let them see what the system says rather than telling them it's an iPhone right off the bat.
I was getting a Monday the 6th pickup date from UPS online but I called them and they made sure my pickup was going to be for tomorrow, or else they offered to revert it to standard delivery.
We all know porch pirates are going to be following the trucks around, so please get someone to be at your address to receive the delivery if possible.
I have done this with previous Verizon iPhones. But if you don’t do it early enough, it’ll get out on the delivery truck in the morning and then all you can do is wait. I’ve usually called a day or two before, once I have my tracking number, and can see that it reached the local sorting facility.
Just called FedEx now and asked if they could hold the package, they said driver will attempt at least once before that option becomes available. It does require an indirect signature.
Some say FedEx will leave at the door if no one is home. That is hard to believe but . . . .
By indirect signature, I assume you mean anyone can sign besides the purchaser?
In other words, any signature is required or the package goes back to the originating sort facility.
Yes, I'll be camping out by the electric gate of our common drive way today.
