Default Does Dell require signature for FedEx delivery in US? - 02-05-2009, 12:56 AM

The order from Dell makes it look like I have to be home to sign. Ugh! I hate when they do this on relatively cheap things.

Unsure on this one. I had a mini overnighted and had to sign for that. Then had two come standard delivery, both of those were just left on my front deck. Had a few small things come from them, can't remember if I had to actually sign for those or not. I was rather suprised they just left the mini on the front deck though.

No, FedEx didn't even KNOCK when they dropped mine on the porch. Really pissed me off, actually. Right up there with the PC I shipped to a friend, and they delivered to the wrong house (same deal, dropped on a porch and run).. Spent a week tracking it down.

I was able to print out a form to sign and leave taped to the door when I bought a cheap case from the Apple Store. The form was on the Apple site, but I would guess you could also find it on the Fedex site.

Mine came standard delivery via FedEx, a day early in fact. I was not there, and they did not leave it; they left the usual tag to let me know they had been buy, but that I had to sign for it. They came back the next day and I signed.

Standard fedex shipping for my mini. They left it on my porch while I was at work.
No signature was required.

if you read on dell's site, if it is a computer order under $300, no signature is required. so my $273 refurb mini9 required no sig

Didn't have to sign for mine. The delivery guy dropped it off, rang the door bell, and ran... like he was dumping a baby on my door step.

Well, I ended up having to take the morning off so I would be there to sign for it. The hardest part was leaving charging at home and coming in to work after FedEx dropped it off.
