Very curious to know and to hear from any of you that have done this....or just your opinion on it!

I have a HUGE dilemma and it will greatly effect a delivery.  

 

Have any of you actually had your package held for pick-up and actually went to your local UPS or FedEx and picked up the package there because you knew you wouldn't be able to be home to sign for it???

put a note on the door with the tn and sign it and say to leave it. Worked everytime with me. "Please leave my p@rcel here. The TN is:73737237732737. For *your name here* Sign your name. Thank you very much!!

 

That is what I write and they leave it.

I have done this before, just show them your ID, sign for your Tupperware and you are on your way.

Must be an IOP you're talking about . I personally try not to buy anything that requires a sig. One less piece of evidence.

It was Milenium Pharmacy, I knew the wife was goi g to be home so I had the carrier hold at facility then I went and picked it up. For that option, you have to sign. But come to think of it, that was the package with the federal ID tag.

I would have pooped my pants upon opening that...unless you think milenium put it there incase it was opened, to throw them off? Idk maybe I think too much.

 go sign for it. your conscience is getting to you . your just an average dude picking up a delivery like any other time RIGHT?

the stress from these scenarios stems almost 100% from your own brain pan, which maybe you can slow down after you go grab that

I know this is an older thread, but I order many things online, and use to work an hour from my house. So, my fed-ex packages that required a sig I would put ahold on them and the hub was twenty minutes from my job. Just walk in, give them the tracker or drivers license and you are good to go.

I have had to do this in my previous job as I could be called after 6 and be asked to go to another city from

90 to 120 miles away. In those days ON really meant ON and didn't want delivery setting on porch all day. As

long as I could print the TN info and had my DL they would put into the system to hold(for cust pickup) very early AM

as it was being unloaded from overnight air into del truck. The scan would say hold and it would be given to me

before I left town. Job change and really no ON anymore so haven't had to do that 3-4 years. No one ever cared anyway!

I love your idea but they come with an electronic pad that I have to print my name and sign.  This allows the sender to go to USPS and look at the delivery verification.  I suspect if you leave a piece of paper attached to your door with your data and signature, the post office ends up having to scan that into their system. I can see my carrier thinking, "this aXXhole is making more work for me like I don't have enough already".  This is just my opinion but I do love your idea....

When bad weather hit and my letter was at a local UP$, I knew it would not be delivered for upto a week because of bad road conditions. I just called them as soon as they opened and asked them to hold it there before it went on a truck. They held it there, I arrived. signed for it and on my way. Something funny though, there was a big ass sign right beside me and the worker that said be on the lookout for online pharmacy packaging.

I always hold at the hub - This way "overnight by end of day" is there when they open :) saves money.  They get to know you and you just fill out the form / show ID / get package and sign

If it was controlled, they need to know when you're showing up

I have always done this

So I had a delivery from SY (ON, should have been delivered last friday) and am trying to decide if I should open a claim for a lost love letter or not. Undue attention? I've been told that it cannot be tracked since it was last two states away, and is likely "under a belt," and misplaced.......!!?????!?!?!?! Never actually lost a package so feeling the sting of this and also thinking I want to be smart and not hedge my bets by calling attention to a situation. ?

 I think my vendor actually shipped from inside US. not that it makes a difference, but you never know it might. just saying. Any insight welcome

It sounds like you have made up your mind @ajmorgan99, but then again,  nothing ventured, nothing gained.........
