Does UPS do this to everyone?
 
So my ups guy doesn't ring the doorbell or give a knock when he drops off my packages like they use to. I'll be home and won't know I have a package until 3-4 hours later. That's alot of time for would be thieves. The worst part though is that all my packages seem to come like this... If I'm lucky!, worse if not.

At least nothing has been damaged...YET :mad: So does anyone else have any stories about shipping services ? Also wouldn't they cut down on insurance claims if there drivers actually saw the people take delivery of the package. What would stop someone from buying something really expensive then saying they never got it? Pretty stupid if you ask me.

My UPS guy opens the door says what's up, rips a bong hit, drinks a beer, plays video games with me. You must suck as a person.

My guy stacks everything up real nice and neat by my shop door and if its raining he will put everything in my shed.

He don't ring my doorbell cause he knows im sleeping and does not want to piss me off.

I get the exact same thing from UPS. Dented up packages just left in the general vicinity of my door. No knock or ring of the doorbell. It kind of pisses me off, except for the fact that I live in a gated community so I'm not overly worried about thieves. That said, I REALLY didn't appreciate it when I ordered a new Lib Tech board and the UPS guy just leaned it against my door. For a $500 item, ring the goddamned doorbell!!!! :mad:

Pretty simple fix if your that worried about it, just request a signature required for drop off when you order things.

Then I have to stay home from work or adventures if I have a package coming ? If I'm not home and I know a package is coming and it gets stolen thats my fault, but If I am home and it gets stolen right out from under me then its still my fault but I'm going to be pissed at the ups guy for not even attempting to let me know its here. Also delivery confirmation costs a buck or two more and thats if the company is willing to do it. Plus like I said with insurance claims... I wonder how many jerks say they never got the package when they did. If the ups driver saw you take delivery then that wouldn't happen or they wouldn't get away with it. I don't expect them to wait at everyones door, because a lot of people aren't home, but how freakin hard would it be to just give a little knock before you walk back to your truck :dunno: O well, glad your drivers are cool:cool:

I once had some computer parts ordered about 5 years ago and I sat and watched threw my blinds as the driver pretty much chucked the packages from his truck to my porch. I do live on the second floor, maybe thats why all my packages look like they where sat on by an elephant.

I don't get the complaint here.

You either want it treated as a "signature required" delivery or you don't. If it isn't required, then you're not going to get a knock or a doorbell ring. If I'm the driver and you didn't want a signature required delivery, I assume that you're not home and never planned to be.

If you want it delivered securely, either stay home and wait or get it shipped to your local UPS store and go pick it up.

There's two points.

1. How fucking hard is it to just tap the door as you drop the package off? Takes all of about 1-2 seconds. I think my guy doesn't do it because I'm on the second floor and he just hucks the packages up here instead of using the stairs.

2. Insurance.... Like I said, they could save a lot of time and money on insurance claims if there drivers where actual witness's to the delivery (if the person is home and they see them before they drive off) :dunno:

What good is being home if they don't even knock or ring the bell and some thieve grabs it before you because you didn't even know it was out there ? Packages don't "ALWAYS" arrive when there suppose to, and I don't know about you but I can't afford to just miss work then miss another day of work because it didn't come on the day it was suppose too.

What some people don't seem to understand or care about is that it would only take a few seconds per delivery to simply ring or knock and could save them lots of money on claims.

Not to mention I tip my drivers around Christmas and major holidays because I get a lot of packages and I know there "suppose" to work hard. Not coming to the door doesn't hurt me. I guess from now on if the package arrives in good working order, then fine. If it shows up broke or damaged, I'll just keep saying I didn't get it until they get it right. :cheeky4:

Fedex>UPS.uck

Also had a package that was already on the truck for delivery get delayed bye a whole day because of an address error on there part. Funny thing was it was 2 day shipping, so an extra day goof cost me about $10 that I could have saved had I just used ground and they didn't mess up. You think they reimbursed me ? haha HELL NO!

Lately I've been getting as much stuff as possible sent to my p.o. box so I can just go over when I feel like and get the key from my box and pick up my package.
