    Ordered 10/24

    Now shipping, via FedEx.

    Scheduled for delivery Monday, 11/3, "by 8:00pm."

    I'll be gone mid-day, roughly 9a - 3:30p.

    As I see it, my options are:

    • Pre-sign for delivery, so FedEx leaves the package at the front door. Obvious risk of having it stolen (or extremely low risk of FedEx chicanery). Nice neighborhood, but it happens.


    • Let FedEx attempt delivery, and then reschedule delivery later in the week when I will be here to sign.

    Is there an official option I'm missing?

    How late can I pre-sign? Day of delivery?

    Any help appreciated. :)

    call FedEx - ask them not to put on the truck for delivery and go pickup at your local fedex depot

    Yeah get them to hold it at a Kinko's if you can. They're open late and it's awesome.

    As a side note, my Mac was in memphis yesterday and was set for delivery tomorrow but arrived a full day early. Originally Apple said I'd get it on the third of November. Luckily a roommate was awake to open the door, great day today :]

    As mentioned, having them deliver it to the nearest Kinko's is an easy solution. Another solution is to pre-sign and ask FedEx to deliver to a neighbor that you know will be home. Or just have them deliver it the next day...but why do that when you can pick it up at Kinko's?

    Apple Store

    I have my new iMac delivered to nearest Apple Store, it will be there Nov 4th instead of Nov 12th for home delivery. Much faster, will pick it up after work.

    I am going to pre-sign. Risk taker. Low risk area, thankfully :)

    Thanks! I didn't know this was an option, but I called FedEx and set it up.

    The package should be at the Holding Station on the day of delivery.

    So thanks again. :)
