I am off work tomorrow because I work Saturday. Going to open the windows at the front of the house since the weather is going to be nice and keep an ear out for the truck coming down the street.

Stumpy59. You won't be able to get it at the local office. They have to make at least 1 delivery attempt before they will hold it.

That is unless you have friends that work for FedEX Smiley Happy

You are the second person who said this about Fedex. That is a UPS rule - no holds until after the first attempt.

FEDEX has no hard rule about it - I did this when I ordered the new iPad from Apple without any problem.

Nope not here. They just start their sort about 8:15 here and they don't leave until 9:15 or so. This is not the first time I have done this. Also if it is on the truck already and the truck hasn't left they will go back and pull it.

And at least FEDEX will honor that request. UPS it is "up to the driver's discretion" (re: safety) to leave an item at a front door.

You can call FedEx if you live close enough to you local office and have them hold it for you. That way they won't try to deliver it and you go to your FedEx and pick it up

The form does have a section to place the address of a friend/neighbor to sign for you. I'm guessing the driver may deliver to the alternate location if you have it noted on the form and the live in the same building.........and you have a friend or neighbor you trust in your complex.
