1 Bump

I had just ordered a really nice really expensive graco pack n play which costed about $139, some flannel blankets, and a really nice 21 piece layette set from Walmart.con because they didn't have them in the stores. I have been tracking the order via email and know FedEx is the company sending it, the layette set and flannel blankets are suppose to arrive tomorrow and the pack n play on the 8th. My question is had anyone ordered from before? And are they going to leave it at my front door or are they going to require a signature? I don't want my stuff to get stolen and if I have to I will wait at my window all day watching like a hawk for a FedEx truck lol.

  • unless you specified signature required then no, they will drop it -knock on your door and leave

  • Ugh, I meant $193 for the pack n play, all together with everything the total came up to about $250. Wasn't sure if the price of things made a difference in whether or not a signature is required.

  • They never gave me an option of having a signature required or else I would've picked it ;( it was all through, I didn't even know who the carrier was until they emailed me that my items had been shipped and by whom.

  • It comes FedEx (or maybe it was UPS dunno) and they just leave packages at the door unless it requires a signature (most Walmart shippings don't). They usually ring the bell or knock first but won't wait.

  • I would play it safe and wait by the window like a hawk. You'll be able to keep tracking the shipment online and know what day it's due to be delivered. If you have to leave, you can always leave a note on the door with a huge FEDEX or UPS sign and request that they only leave it when someone is present.

  • What time does fedex usually get to your neighborhood? Plan your day around that.

  • They will leave it all at the door. Some Fedex drivers don't even ring the doorbell. (that is fron experance).

  • My husband works for UPS, so it's a little different, but not by much. His words:

    For $250, probably not (signature required).
    I see very little that comes from FedEx that's signature required.
    If it was UPS he could tell you yes/no with the tracking number.

    Another thing to think about. If FedEx says that something will be delivered on X day, it arrives early, it will sit in the center until that day. If UPS says it will be delivered on X day, and it show up early, they'll deliver it early, not sit on it for stupid reasons.

  • They will just knock and leave it there so be on the look out for it.
