Default Fedex question

So i ordered an Afg from Magpul and was tracking its progress across the country, it was due to arrive today. Ive only bought one or two other items online and neither was shipped fedex. We went christmas shopping today and the fedex truck came while we werent home. I guess i needed to be home to sign for it? I assumed it would be left by the door or in my dodge pickup as i know ups sometimes does this. Fedex.com says it will now be the 20th but that is tuesday and ill be at work then. So what happens then? Would they leave it then or take it to the post office?

That's fedex home delivery. They don't run Monday. You may take that doorknocker sticker to the local Fedex Ground terminal on Monday and pick it up in person, or sign it and leave it on your front door to authorize a Tuesday delivery.

If you don't do either of these, they will make 3 total attempts they return to shipper. They WILL NOT leave at the. Post office.


I spent 230,000 miles in a Fedex Ground delivery truck.

you can pick it up at their distribution center. just give them a call with the tracking number. whether they leave something at the door or not depends on the shipper's request and how safe your neighborhood is.

ups left my springfield armory 1911A1 at the door for me after it came back from getting the 470 rowland kit fitted...

mileage varies.

If a signature is required they will attempt to deliver it again. If no one is home it will go back to the sender. Go onto the Fedex website and see what the tracking info says, you may be able to relay delivery instructions over the web or sign the slip they left at your door. Not sure that FedEx will leave it at the post office, most likely the fed ex depot for your area.

If you call them and 'give them permission' to leave it at the door with no signature, they will do that, I believe. That way the responsibility is off them if you say they can do that.

Ok thanks, i didnt see anything in the order confirmation or shipment emails from magpul or the fedex tracking page that indicated that a signature was required. Also there was no door knocker slip at the door, in mailbox, in my truck or in my wife's explorer, i checked for one but nothing. The tracking page on fedex says, "delivery exception (customer not home or business closed)". Ill try to contact fedex and see about picking it up at thier shipping center. I live in the country on a state highway with elderly neighbors, crime in my area is pretty low so thats not really a problem i dont think.

Ok just got the number off the website, ill give them a call tomorrow, not sure if ill get an answer. Ill authorize them to leave it here, dont really want to drive 40 miles to thier depot to get it, dont know where it is anyway.

I positively loved my job and my customers.

Me and some management didn't jive. That's why I'm EX FEDEX.

If you dont mind me asking whats the hourly pay? It would have to be pretty good for me to drive 40 miles to work when i only drive 6 now.

That's too bad that you had to leave a job you loved because of bad management.
