    I have a package coming in from UPS, on Dec 24th apparently, and I might not be home when they come by. I was wondering how does one change their shipment from "sign on delivery" to "leave at door" on their site? The package that's coming is a Christmas gift and I'd rather be able to put it under the tree instead of getting a "missed delivery" notice.

    So is there any way to change it to "leave at door" on their website?


    By the way this IS toy related, package contains Universe Storm Cloud whom I very much wanna open on Christmas.

    The signing option is not yours to make - it's the senders. If they sent it with a required signature, then UPS will leave a notice on your door that you have a pakcage and will provide the options you have (either sign the slip and put it back on your door - in which case they'll grab that slip and leave the package, go pick it up at the delivery office, or arrange a time window for delivery - which usually isn't available during the holidays due to them being so busy).

    If they sent it without signature confirmation or with no preference, then the package will be left at your door and they mark the shipment as being delivered.

    Either way, there's nowhere online that I know of to change these options.

    OK Thanks. I guess I'll have to try to be home when they get here.

    you CAN change the shipping address. If you are going to be at work you could have it sent there. I did that with a package I got that was signature required and I was going to be at work for.

    OK Another thing that's concerning me now. I signed onto UPS.com and selected email notification on delivery for the package. Since yesterday its latest update on the site says "12/22/2008 9:55 A.M. IN TRANSIT TO FINAL DESTINATION" yet I have gotten an email saying "this notice alerts you the following shipment has been delivered."

    Additional info it gives is:

    Delivery Date / Time: 22-December-2008 / 9:55 AM
    Delivery Location: RECEIVER
    Signed by: BENDER


    I have no idea what's going on, is it still being shipped or did someone intercept it? I have no clue what's going on at all.

    I would definitely call UPS immediately. That sounds weird.

    Do you live in an apartment complex?

    Do you have a neighbor that looks like this?

    OK I got him, somehow idk how, my UPS package got put into the USPS package bin....weird really weird.


    But now everything is quite rocking and excellent. I shall keep him packaged until I go to my mom's for Christmas. He looks to be quite a great figure and he greeted me quite nicely, he played the G1 transformation sound as soon as I saw him.

    IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!
