    So, you have a ground delivery to a Business, no signature paid for or required.
    No one is at the front desk, you DR front desk and be on your way?
    Just wondering as there has been some discussion about this.

    You get a signature at ALL business deliveries....This ain't rocket science.

    The methods clearly state that you must get a signature at ALL commercial stops--no exceptions.

    DR'ing a package also adds a res surcharge. Could be disputed, but causes a lot of headaches.

    I stated the method; however, if this is a regular customer who just happened to step out for a moment, I will take care of it.

    If you going to leave it (don't make this a habit) DR instead of touching the sig screen. NEVER TOUCH SIG SCREEN FOR ANY REASON.

    That is the question, since the sender is too cheap to require a signature, why should we provide a service not paid for?

    We've been instructed to leave a deliveryrelease everywhere. Just like the prompt says, the customer is given a discount and no claims are paid on these. Leave it and walk away.

    They are paying for it because it's included in the service of delivering to a commercial stop. Unless it's shipper release, it requires a signature at all commercial stops.

    Seriously? How will "you take care of it"? By signing their name?

    Your two posts contradict each other. First you say no exceptions, follow methods. Then you say, doesn't apply to me because I'll take care of it.


    How do you expect to actually be taken seriously if this is your advice?

    It would be a waste of money to pay for a signature on a package going to a business.

    It's called being honest.

    Go find someone else to bug.

    There's been times when the person who would normally sign is occupied or busy or whatever and if they acknowledge me or wave or whatever I'll gesture to a desk or wherever it is I'm leaving it and put it in as dr mcm or mcw.

    It's really a matter of what arrangement is made between you and certain customers.

    I don't, however, sign someone's name. If it's being left without a siggy its dr 1 or 2

    If I can't find someone or they are busy and can't sign. I have no problem dr a package at a business. If I dr a package at a business I put the package where will either trip over it or have to sit on it. Some business I have delivered to have left notes please leave at such and location. Again i have no problems dr a package in that situation.
