    Hi, I recently had something shipped to me and listed my address including apartment number like so on the first line "123 Park Avenue C7" without using the "apt" abbreviation or placing the unit number on the second line. I initially thought this was acceptable until signing up for the UPS My Choice service, and after entering the address was told since the address provided was recognized as a tenant dwelling or apartment, an "apt" followed by the unit number was needed on the second line. I'd like to know if what I placed on the initial address order form is acceptable enough for UPS to find and deliver my package. Thanks!

    I usually say, "Hello, Mr. Apartment. How are you? Lovely weather we are having, isn't it?"

    Yes it should be good enough. But just add the 'apt' next time?

    You aren't the first guy your regular driver has seen with just the number after the street name. You'll be fine, unless you order a Bowflex, then you might have a Need Apt Number postcard sent to your residence.

    Just make sure you put your phone number on there too.

    I like to address them standing up and facing them.

    ​They don't seem to listen if I'm sitting or not facing them.

    The apartment or unit number should be on the second line.

    Just have "the driver knows" for the apt. and you will get it.

    It really depends on how familiar your driver is with your apartment complex and if they the C7 behind the address. If you have the tracking number you can call 1-800-PICK-UPS and they can help insure you get your package addressed correctly. More than likely you will get it anyway.
