UPS Hold for pick up

Posted in Expedited Shipments on


When you order a package online do you ever anxiously watch the tracking info, watching it hit every check point hoping it will magically get to you sooner than promised?

I have to say the most frustrating part is when you get the status of “out for delivery”. It pretty much drives me crazy. It could mean that my package is right outside my door and in three seconds I will hear a knock.

Or it could mean that it is in a truck on the other side of town and I will not get it until the end of the day.

It’s something about being so close to what I desire but not being able to reach out and grab it.

Many times I have wanted to get in my car and drive around looking for the delivery truck.

Other times I have driven by a delivery truck and had to fight back the almost overwhelming desire to walk up to the delivery person and ask if I could rummage through the back of his truck.

I have read enough stories online though to know that the last option is not such a good idea.

Well if you are like me and go crazy waiting for the last leg of your packages journey let me tell you about something that could possibly save your sanity.

Hold For Pick up.

Rather than waiting for the delivery truck to make it’s rounds and show up on your door step, you can simply opt out and go pick it up yourself.

Imagine, a short trip to the post office and your new book, phone, movie, or cute Halloween costume for your pet, can be in your grasp.

This alone should save you a few gray hairs over the years.

Unfortunately this only works for the last part of the trip, and if your package is late, delayed, or lost you are still stuck anxiously clicking refresh on your browser.
