  • How late does FedEx deliver?

    Got something that's been out for delivery since 8AM and it's 8:30PM right now.

    I wouldn't care but it's signature and I had the wife locked up in the house all day waiting for this guy.

    I swear that the FedEx drivers around here are the absolute worst on the planet. Broken guitars, stuff delivered to the wrong houses (4 out of 6 times now)...

    I'm going to bet that they reschedule it for tomorrow at this point.

    I don't know how late the actually deliver, but I have never had anything arrive later than about 7:30.

      I've always had bad experience with FedEx. They wouldn't leave something at my door or deliver it to the landlord's office, even when I had a note on the door telling them to. I think the cutoff is 80. Sorry, man.

        during the holiday season I've actually had fedex and ups deliver to me after 90. I think the latest was right around 10 oclock.

              Yeah they can go pretty late, many/most delivery driving jobs are the 'you get off work when your truck is empty' sort. I've never seen anything be marked out for delivery and not show up on that day.

                Yeah, around Christmas they work as late as they have to. I feel ya though, nothing like taking off a day of work to wait for a package, then go to the bathroom and find a "sorry we missed you" tag on the door.. GRRR! Been there, done that =

                  7:30 has been my experience too.

                    Well it's 10PM and nothing here yet.

                    I did call, but the waiting time is insane.

                      FedEx delivery cuts off at 8PM.

                      If it's FedEx Ground, you can schedule your delivery time. Regular (air) FedEx, you are pretty much at their mercy.

                          Just a cheap talkbox (Dano) I scored on e-Bay for a few bucks. I got the new tube today which I wasn't expecting for like a week, but USPS just kicked the crap out of FedEx on this one.

                          The sad part is that the place it shipped from is like a 30 minute trip down the road. There just wasn't an option for local pickup.

                            I had a FedEx guy show up at nearly 11pm and ring the doorbell once. I agree that they are terrible. I've been held hostage by them in the house many times before!
