Holiday package delivery tips

With the holidays in full swing, delivery of packages to homes and businesses are high. Here’s a few tips from Payson Home Watch to make sure your packages are delivered safely and decrease the changes of theft.

USPS:
Take advantage of the Request Hold Mail service. Your mail will be kept safely at your local Post Office™ until you return. Schedule the service up to 30 days in advance, or by 2AM CST (Mon-Sat) on the start date. Each address can have one Hold Mail scheduled at a time. All mail will be held, rather than an individual’s mail. https://holdmail.usps.com/

UPS:
If you need greater flexibility and more control when it comes to managing your home deliveries, check out UPS My Choice®.
As a UPS My Choice Member, you decide where and when packages arrive before the first delivery attempt. With proactive delivery alerts, you get the most up-to-date information about your home deliveries, without needing any tracking numbers.
Going out of town? UPS My Choice gives you vacation options to reschedule or reroute packages while you’re away.
Become a My Choice Member to begin scheduling UPS home deliveries around your life–and not the other way around. www.ups.com

FedEx:
Sign up for FedEx Delivery ManagerSM. It only takes a few minutes, and you can customize how, when and where packages are delivered to your home.
For instance, before you leave — or while you’re away — you can suspend all packages coming to your home address within a specific date range (up to 14 calendar days). Or, for a nominal fee, you can request FedEx to deliver your packages to a different address — it could be your neighbor’s house, your sister’s, or your vacation destination.
You can also request a specific day for delivery, and even a time within a 2-hour window, to ensure you get your package in your hands, on your schedule. This is particularly helpful for when you return from your travels.

If you’d rather retrieve your packages on your own time, choose Hold at FedEx Location and have your packages held at the nearest FedEx Office location.
1. And talk about convenience: Depending on where they are in the delivery cycle, you can even request that FedEX deliver your packages to a FedEx location while they’re en route.
2. We’ll hold your packages securely for up to five business days and release them only to you with proof of identification. It’s free, and you have more than 2,400 locations nationwide to choose from.
