    Call local FedEx or UPS.. give them your tracking number..tell them to hold at facility. Saves them fuel and time. Pick it up from there if not too far. Otherwise, no note will work. If ya got a trustworthy neighbor they will accept indirect sigs.

    Ummm they have to make deliveries whether they hold yours or not.

    The thing is some places will hold them while other say they can't. There have been others who said they asked and fedex said no. While you have guys like Chris saying they did it with no problem. So who knows what their local fedex will do. Same thing with leaving your signature on a note. Some will leave it and some one. Doesn't hurt to try but don't be upset if they won't do it.

    I'll just pick mine up after I get off work. I'll leave a note for them to take it to my neighbors house. But I'll be fine if they don't.

    You are correct on FedEx.... I had forgotten that. FedEx must make one attempt. UPS not so. But, then again.....Its who ya know.

    Yeah I just wish they were more consistent. I'm pretty sure some people will be able to leave a note with signature while others won't. Not sure if that will be determined by the specific driver or the local fedex office. Either way it should be consistent.

    Here's what the Fedex site says in the FAQ section

    For packages not requiring a signature for release, our drivers will leave the package at a recipient's door, or other secure location, if the driver believes it is reasonable to do so. If your package was shipped with the Indirect Signature Release option, you may leave a signed and dated handwritten note on the door instructing the driver to leave the package at your door.

    When the driver is unable to leave your package, they will leave a door tag on your door, informing you of the delivery attempt. The door tag contains information that may offer you the option to sign the door tag and have the driver leave your package in a secure location on the next delivery attempt, typically the next business day.

    If signing the door dag is not possible because the shipper has requested an in-person, direct signature, you may request your package be held for pickup at your nearby FedEx Office location. For FedEx Express packages, you may also request the package be held at the delivery station.


    Now let's see if they will all be consistent.
