UPS is really good about trying to make contact at the front door in my experiences, but I can't speak for other carriers.Sometimes the drivers of some delivery companies mark that you weren't at home and don't even ring the bell or knock. They've even done that at my work building which has staff there 24/7.
Yes. Just sign up for a free UPS My Choice account https://www.ups.com/mychoice/welcome.html and you have options to hold at facility or choice the delivery window. If you have a premium account you can narrow the window down to within 1 or 2 hours. FedEx has a similar service that allows you to do the same thing.So I was able to get two iPhone x's for both of my lines. I thought I did all the updating I needed for shipping information on my Apple account and didn't cross my mind that my att account had my old address. So when I ordered, I chose the next plan and I guess it defaults to the att account address. So now it's being delivered to my old UPS store po box which I don't have anymore. I called the UPS store and they said they will hold it for me but I don't trust them. I would rather have the shipping carrier hold it at my local pickup center wether it's ups or FedEx. Can I request to have the shipping carrier hold it at my local pickup center or will they force the ship to my att account invalid address?
