    My FedEx page says On FedEx vehicle for delivery. It was posted at 8:39 AM. It's 9:17 now.

    I'm not being impatient, but I have to leave for work soon and I would like to know the average time it takes for the truck to get to a house.

    When does FedEx usually come to your house for delivery? That'll be the time. There is absolutely NO WAY anyone will know the exact route FedEx takes to deliver a package to your residence.

    Oh, this is my first FedEx delivery. Everything from UPS typically comes at 7:30 at night, but I've heard FedEx is better about delivering in the morning. (That's what she said...)

    UPS was using express this time around, so guaranteed delivery before 10:30. Mine arrived at 9:30-ish.

    Fed-Ex should be well before evening, but it depends on the sort of shipping used. If it was overnighted, should be relatively soon.

    "How long from "Out for Delivery" ?"

    If Ron White were here he'd tell you "until it reaches your door"...

    Here's a handy hint:

    Do you want the UPS/Fedex guy to arrive right now?

    Then go to the bathroom and use the toilet…

    Trust me when I say that at the most awkward moment the doorbell will ring.

    And remember, they only wait 30-40 seconds.

    Good luck!

    It was standard overnighted. I guess I'll have to wait.

    I just didn't know if anyone had any insider info on routes and lunch breaks and the like. (I'd like to think it'll be delivered before lunch because it's already on the truck...who knows?...)

    It really depends where you are on the route, which changes every day.

    FedEx usually gets to my house before 11. So I'm hoping he'll be here pretty soon.

    Between 10:30 and 3:00.

    You're in the queue after Fedex delivers all the priority (by 10:30) packages, and you should be on the standard overnight which is guaranteed by 3:00.

    Other than that, it just depends on the route, which nobody knows.

    It really depends on what other deliveries the truck has to make. For me, UPS usually comes around 1pm, FedEx around 2pm.

    I didn't know it was a express delivery. The UPS driver said they have lot's of iPhones to deliver today... It also has a Saturday stamp on it for those that miss him today... I guess they will even deliver it on Saturday.

    I wish. I took off four days last week to go to Florida. My boss is pretty lax with vacation days....but five days when I've had this job for less than two months is a little much...

    So I sat by the doorbell with my laptop from 8 - 2:15 monitoring FedEx tracking every ~30 minutes. Check it out:
