We do not require a signature on normal ground delivery shipments, but in some cases, FedEx or UPS may require a signature. If it is a high-value shipment, the shipper may require a signature. The driver also has the authority to decide if leaving the package outside might not be a good idea in certain areas.
Truck Freight may be required on larger items. Truck Freight Lines requires that someone be there to accept and sign for the shipment as well as help unload. Most trucks do not have lift gates.
Customer Delivery Instructions
There is a very limited amount of space on a shipping label for delivery instructions. We can get 3-4 words in that space. Instructions like “Leave the package around back by the storage shed as the gate is unlocked and the dogs don’t bite” will not fit the space available. We try to have the customer’s comments on the shipping label when possible, but, we cannot guarantee that the delivery driver will read or follow the instructions. If you enter a company name, and it is shipping to a residence, we do not have room to put the instructions on the label.
