    Thumbs down FedEx Home Delivery is WORTHLESS!

    Absolutely the most inept shipping company known to mankind. Their tracking info says, out for delivery, yet nothing and when you call to find out what's going on, they have all left for the day and it's only 5pm. In the meantime, I've wasted an entire day waiting. Eff them, the Colonel that sent them and the horse they are riding on.

    Rant over.

    I hate that also. But and only a small but, i believe they deliver til like 9-10pm or something absurd.

    Here's to hoping you get your goods soon.

    Been using Fedex for years exclusively. Never an issue.

    With FedEx 'home' a lot of the times the deliveries are made when people are home from work, ie after 5pm.

    I agree never happy with FedEx Home, this is one side of a company which hurts their name.

    UPS is the worst for me. Other than damaged items, they always show in achorage then comes a knock on the door. Hell anchorage is 357 miles away or sometimes it will show seattle then knock knock on the door.

    For whatever reason FEDEX has been right on the money as far as where there at for me. I think it depends on the local setup as to how accurate they are.

    Good luck with your package Jesse.

    Have had problems with DHL, UPS and FedEx. But then again have had no issues with all of them as well. Go figure.

    That would be fine, but these have been out for delivery since 7:30am, it's now 7:30pm. I know that mofo ain't working 12 straight.

    Alot of those "Home" guys are contractors and get paid by the package/delivery. I've had packages show up at 9:30 in the evening.

    I understand that UPS will ship to a UPS "Store" and you can go to the "brown" store and sign for the package. They will hold the package for three days also. Seems like a good deal for people who can't be home or may be traveling. No extra charge for this service.

    I see this advantageous for a claim if the package is banged up or you can hear something broken on the inside. You have the clerk at the store as a witness to document damages.

    DHL dropped that amp showed you, right at my feet because it was to heavy...he said "this must weigh a hundred pounds"
    "I said no , it weighs 96"




    then he dropped it !


    when My SVS was supposed to be delivered, I had to wait 2 days because I kept missing the driver....I had to go down to UPS that night at 9pm to wait for the driver to return from his route, and slide it out of his truck into mine...


    I hate waiting for these guy`s..

    I feel your pain , bro....

    I hate that waiting all day to get nothing. Nevertheless, I'll take fedex over UPS any day. Never had a problem with them, plus they deliver Saturdays. With UPS too many times I've been waiting for something only to see a "shipping exception" saying that there was an address problem or somthing like that. B.S. they run out of time and make up whatever excuse and deliver the next day.
    Anyway, hope you get it.

    I've shipped literally thousands of packages from Sprint, when I was there, with zero claims. I've never understood what is happening to you people.

    FedEx Home drivers aren't always employees and I only recently found out that it's a totally different world. You can't call CS and have them get a message to the drive to call the station with a general ETA because not all of the trucks are equiped with that type of system. Some are contractor owner/operators of the trucks they drive, so it just depends on what's gonna happen with them.........

    I've had minor problems with Fed Ex, UPS, and USPS. I prefer UPS since the driver lives down the block from me and always does the right thing.

    I've only had one issue with FedEx and generally prefer them to UPS.

    I had a FedEx guy show up at my door at 9:30pm last week! Which, actually, I don't mind as long as I get my shiz.

    I DO like the fact that they deliver on Saturdays too.

    Chances of damage, in my experience, has always been about equal across the board. They all like to drop-kick our packages to our front mats.

    I've received dozens of items through FedEx Home/Ground. Never a problem. I like them because they deliver on Saturdays. Most of the time, they drop off to me around 4-6pm. On the other hand, UPS never drops off to me until after 7pm.

    I guess it all depends where you are on the delivery route. As far as safe package handling and damage, I've had problems with both, but FedEx has a better track record for me.
