According to a Thursday morning news release, USPS carriers will knock on your door instead of touching the doorbell if you have a package that requires a signature.
Typically, the United States Postal Service uses unit-specific mailboxes for your letters, bills, magazines, and small packages. For anything that won’t fit in your standard-sized apartment mailbox, the mail carrier will lock the package in a parcel locker in the mail area of your apartment complex.
Carriers should ring the doorbell or knock when delivering a package, but they do not wait for an answer unless the sender or receiver requires a signature. The Postal Service is working hard to deliver the best possible service for all customers.
There is no legal requirement to ring the doorbell when making a delivery. However, when a driver leaves a package at your door they are in effect insuring your package against theft from the place they left it.
If a payment is still needed, we will knock on your door requesting the recipient to pay the rest of the money owed. If no one is home, the recipient doesn’t want to pay, or doesn’t have the money, the package has to be taken back to the office.
Use FedEx Delivery Manager to let your driver know you want a ring-or a knock. You can leave instructions for drivers to always ring your doorbell or knock on your door when a package is being left. Request to get your delivery on your time, not ours. Pick a delivery time and date that works for you.
If your package fits in your mail box the carrier will leave it there. If the package is too large for the mailbox and the carrier can get to your door without dogs, locked gates or hazards they will come to the door. If you have a doorbell and it works, yes, your delivery person should ring your bell.
The couriers must be instructed to not ring the doorbell. Delivery drivers don’t reing the doorbell or knock because of the amount of times people complain about them knocking, and the times people directly yell at them for knocking or ringing.
