They come to my house between noon and 1.

At my other house, they deliver at about 10am, but here, they don't come until after 6pm. It's really frustrating (I'm impatient when it comes to getting new stuff).

I think I'm almost last on their route. They're usually here between 5:30 and 6pm. I live fairly close to their distribution center, so I think they start in the opposite direction, from my house, and then kind of circle around.

Sometimes it makes for a long day, if I happen to be home waiting for a package. On the other hand, I don't have to worry about a package sitting on my porch all day, either.

@capguncowboy: Do you live on my street? Same here.
@katblue: Ditto

They run all hours where I live. They've came as early as 8am and as late as 8pm and any time in between. Sometimes they don't come at all.

Hunh. They zoom through here many times a day, probably 10-12. The time span is around 9ish in the morning until 7 or so in the evening. I know they prefer to come during the day when they think they can drop and run.

I live in a rural area, so it must depend on the volume the driver that serves the rather large area has on any given day. Usually packages arrive by 2 PM, but they have come as early as 10 AM and as late as 6 PM.

I'm one of the last houses on the route. Packages usually arrive between 7-9pm. In one instance truck showed up a few minutes to 10:00(pm). I find myself both thanking and apologizing to the driver.

my dad lives very rural area (8miles to the nearest city limit sign) they were always there at 3pm. and knowing the area driver would ask if we could hold something for the neighbor who was at a doctor appt while it was raining horribly. he was a wonderful driver.
in my area (many years later) the drivers finally got the hint when we hung signs that said "delivery drivers: please ring bell and wait" (physically disabled spouse while i was at work) now they understand it might take a couple minutes for us to make it to the door. they also have started asking if they can leave our inlaws (next door) stuff with us, since they are never home. they are generally here around noon, but i have had extremes of 8am and 9pm.

They deliver here between 2pm and 5pm, usually.

I think the UPS routes must overlap where I live because I either get packages between 1:30-2:30 or 6:00-7:00. It's always one or the other except for the week or two leading up to Christmas, then it's a crapshoot.

I just had my new TV come via UPS (10:30am). That's the first time they've been here that early since we moved in. Wouldn't you know... the TV is busted. Bastards. They do anything they can to make sure I have to wait as long as possible.

Add me as another crapshoot. Sometimes they come before noon, sometimes when the USPS does (1-3), and sometimes around 5-6.

We used to have an awesome UPS driver, but the latest one has been pretty lax. The USPS guy, though, he's great. :) And he earned his keep this year with the SmartPost deliveries.

I'm not sure, I have non-USPS stuff shipped to work. :) I have seen a UPS truck on my street as late as 9:00pm...

@drunkcajun 10:00pm? That's crazy. Was that during holiday rush?

@moosezilla: Years ago, I had the best UPS delivery driver I've ever met. He was the nicest guy and he went over-and-above to make sure we got our stuff (he knew where to securely hide stuff if we weren't home).

Then we got another driver who always dropped the box on the porch and put "met man at door" as the reason for no signature stating he "always" saw someone come to the door before he left. A package got lost that he supposedly delivered, he insisted that we just missed it... "I probably left it in the barbeque grill. Did you check the old station wagon too?" Yeeeaaah. Thanks a lot.

Mostly around 7:30pm. My driver knows I go out walking my dog at about that time so he actually cruises down my walking route to let me know he has a package for me so I can head home to meet him there. It helps that my dog is very distinctive (135lb Great Dane) so everyone notices him.

@bsw321: It was before the holidays. Granted, it was a dedicated driver; I've had packages wait till the next day simply because of driver-overload.

Sorry but that information is confidential...you could be a burglar waiting to grab my great woot stuff!

Well they come about 4:00pm to 5:00pm.
