mhhm I live in an apartment in the city. The Amazon packages and stuff delivered by dhl always needs to ring the bell of the receipient. If no one is home, they either leave it with a neighbour and leave a note its there or they leave a note telling you to pick it up by the next post office. Not sure how it works with ups though. If in all doubt, have it sent c/o to your company :thumbsup: . Done that before and they were fine as long it is not weekly and they know beforehand...

It all depends on the delivery person and your neighbors. If you can trust them, it'll work - if you can't, it won't.

Do you know someone that you trust that owns/rents a home? It'd be a lot safer having it delivered there (but a lot of places don't want to deliver to a different address than the billing address). Maybe you could give them the money and they could order it on their credit card?

As a last resort, go out and buy a house! :thumbsup: (just kidding!)

i see your point about ringing the bell but my house its so old lol it has no bell just a front locked door with no bell and if the guy was to stick a note someone would take it off because i live in a thuggish neighborhood.


If you can trust them, it'll work


cant trust anyone where i live lol cant buy a house either. :thumbsup:


would it be possible for them to give me a call before delivery and if you know what time do delivery men usully come.

The "proper" procedure for UPS is to try 3 times to deliver, Leaving a note each time. After the 3rd attempt you can pick it up at their depot. Unfortunately, procedure is not always followed. My friend lost a set of speakers when it was left with his neighbor and the neighbor said he never seen it. Some online retailers have a section where you can write special instructions like "must have signed receipt from purchaser", but that's also a crapshoot
