Default ups

im realy fed up with them.

ups claims to have tried delivering this package 2 times and failed . there is always someone at my residence . this is a ongoing issue . they claim to have attempted to deliver a package and couldn't ? how can that be ? there is always someone here . ups leaves a notice on the front door . there is a sign on that door that specifically says to deliver to the back . im realy confused . isn't it there job to deliver the package ? so even if the driver doesn't see the sign , and no one attends to that door . shouldn't they make the attempt to the back door ? instead of just leaving and having to come back again ???? there is no doorbell on the front door . once again , I don't understand this . there job is to deliver packages and it just seems that they lazily make one attempt and then leave .........

or don't make the attempt at all ? but if they have time to put the notice on the door don't they have time to try the back door ?

They are not required to go to another door. Some leave it up to the driver discretion, others will forbid it. If the back door puts the delivery person out of site it becomes a safety hazard for them.

If I know they're coming I usually keep an eye out, especially when I'm home. I get emails 2 days before, the day before and the day of that my package is coming so I know well in advance when to be on the lookout. I also understand that with hundreds of packages to deliver that they can't cater to me.

Their job isn't to cater to your every demand. They have hundreds of packages to deliver and pickup per day. If YOU know you have a package coming YOU need to make sure you make it as easy as possible for the package to be delivered following their guidelines.

Lol. Out of sight is a hazard? 23 year UPSer here and I’ve never heard that once. A smart driver would want to get rid of the package so they don’t need to go back the next day and possibly the third day (three attempts). If your driver knows that if someone will answer the back door then they should go right to that door.

However, the “someone is always home” card is played all the time. Is that someone always listening for the doorbell or knocking? Are they never in the shower or bathroom or in another part of the house? They never leave to go to the store or go for a walk or are taking a nap? I’ve heard all those reasons when the driver has gone back because the person swore they were home.

I can actually say that mine doesn't ring the bell or knock and I am always home. My dog alerts me every single time there's a ring or a knock, whether I'm rubbing one out, in the bathroom or even asleep on the couch. If I leave I see my door, when I come back I see my door. Only time I've missed them when they could have knocked or rang is when my dog and I are out back but then I check before and after lol

Instead of making things difficult make them easy - get a wireless doorbell. You can install it in less time than it took you to make the sign if that's the only problem with the front door. Life is easy, people make it difficult.

I have three doors front, side, and back. Should the driver run around to all the doors if no one answers the front...? No.

My dog (8-9 year Jack Russell terrier) always lets me know when a package has arrived via UPS or FedEx, which is weird since he lives at a different house than than I do and tells me by phone.

no..their job is to deliver sometimes up to 1000 packages every single day, as well as pick-ups

the only reason you are getting a notice, is because your package needs to be signed for. If not for that, it would be left and marked as delivered.

so..how about instead of being a smartass/#@#@#@#@#@#@#@..you make things easier for them, since you KNOW said package has to be signed for..considerig your not the only package receiver for the day entitlement generation

yes , it would be left on the front door step for someone to come along and steal . another dumb ass move . which has happened twice .

I don't care how many packages he has to deliver a day. his job is to get the packages to each and every customer . each one is important .

so no one answers the front door ............... screw it .......... I will come back 2 more times knock on the door ........... no one will show up so then the customer will just have to pick it up at a access point ......... or hey ?????????? maybe I should try the back door ? since there is a sign right on the door that says please deliver packages to back door ........... wow what a great idea ........ this way I can actualy deliver the package and I wont have to come back ..........










there job is to deliver a freekin package , its not gonna kill them to try the back door and actualy get the job done ............

I lice in a townhouse complex. My neighbor across the street has a door to their garage. He gets packages piled up there all the time. He has a sign there stating that it doesn't lead to his house, and the front door is in the front of the building (drivers come down the alley), and they still leave them there.

I work nights, and my wife works from home. I can't tell you how many times we have a note on the front door saying they tried to deliver, and nobody answered. We just look at each other and shake our heads. No way we both missed the doorbell or knock. Hell, the dog barks if the neighbors' doorbell rings. He wouldn't miss that.

Again....if you know a package is coming why are you not making more of an effort?

This simply cannot be this hard...

So what do you think happens? They get out of their truck...without the package...tip toe up to your door and leave the note as quietly as they can and then high tail it out of there?

What would be so hard about you waiting outside for thm to arrive. They typically arrive around the same time each day. Or if you are having issues with stolen packages and getting them getting a mailbox service at a UPS store or something similar. For about 30 a month they will sign for your packages.

You still have said nothing about the accessibility of your back door, that can make a big difference. Would they have to enter into a fenced in yard? Are there large dogs present?

YOU might could tip the driver or such, we leave our USPS driver a gift every so often and you would be amazed how out of the way he will go to see our packages are delivered. A little courtesy will get you further with delivery people than being rude and hateful to them.
