Will UPS just leave your stuff laying in the hallway or what? Also if its the kind of place that has the main door always locked & the delivery requires a signature how does that work? Do you always end up having to retrieve it yourself from ups?

My experience in apartments with central offices is that if you don't answer to sign, then they will leave the package at the mail room in the central office.

However, there have been many times when they just left the package at my front door.

UPS is not supposed to release a package at an Apartment Building.

All apartment Packages must be signed for.

I let the office know I am expecting a package and they will sign for it and hold it until I get home.

The UPS guy here signs for the package, the signature reads "Door" and then leaves it at someone else's front door.

For next day air packages, same thing, unless you're home at catch him leaving it at the door. Then he has you sign it and complains about how next day air packages screw up his route.

He's a real winner.

When I lived in an apartment UPS and Fedex would always leave packages at the front office and I would pick them up after work.

Where I am they don’t leave it at your door, they leave a note that they will try to deliver it the next day. There’s a number you can call and they will hold it at the UPS office and you can come by to sign for it. That works but it’s a bit of a pain. I considered myself lucky that I just caught the UPS guy when he came to deliver an ammunition order recently.

Usually I have my stuff delivered to my brother’s house and pick it up there. But, considering how he feels about firearms I didn’t want to have my ammo delivered to his house… He would have probably run it all through his AR-15 and then told me by shipment of empty brass was in.
