    I ordered from Arrowhead and got an online notice about a delivery attempt only I was home all day. When I went to the PO they couldn't explain why there wasn't a notice on my door. They had no idea where the attempt was made or where the package was. It took about 3 days for them to find it and I never got an explanation.

    UPS sucks just as bad. I ordered something and worked from home Fri because on Thur it was listed as being in the city. Fri morning it was out for delivery. Never showed. Called them and they said, "Oh, that's just info on the truck not a physical scan of the package. It could still be in the originating city." WTH? What kind of BS is that? Sure enough I got it Mon.

    They all suck. FedEx is in my experience better for the simple fact that I can stop by if I miss them. Can't do that with UPS.

    I ALWAYS have anything I order shipped to my work address. This serves two purposes.

    1) Someone will always be at the front desk to sign for the delivery

    2) My wife doesn't need to know EVERY time I place an order for hammock related gear
    Exactly

    As I am the one who receives and process most of the packages where I work, its a no brainer for me. Also some places offer lower shipping rates if shipping to a business address versus a home address.

    My take on this is that I don't like having my stuff sent out without a signature and I will do my best to find a vendor who sends by recorded delivery. I thinks its a sign of a reputable company who puts value on customers recieving their goods.

    If I need it leaving, I leave these instructions on the parcel or leave a signed piece of paper with my name and signature for the courier to take as POD.

    Packages that are signed for are more frequenlty tracked and theft is less easy, although it still happens.

    IME, DD are the quickest posters I have ever dealt with, I've had packages from them in 15 hours from order, free postage too.
