    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    So we have had my choice for about a year now. I'll make this short and sweet. How do u think it's went over? Do you have many packages that are my choice? personally I've seen maybe 5 in a whole year. So what's your opinion on my choice.

    i think new services are extremely slow to catch on not sure if its stubborness on the part of the shipper or just bad comm on our part?

    This is a consignee service.

    Shippers do not use it.

    My Choice is a suite of consignee based services.

    You appear to be referring to the Premium level service of a 2-hour window.

    I have a commit at a house for 1245. I have probably 5 on my route. The esignatures are nice.

    My choice has nothing to do with the shipper and we have left millions of info notices with the bright blue my choice add. So slow to catch on? Or won't catch on?

    No I've seen zero delivery window packages and maybe a handful of e signatures (I like those). What I will admit we don't see is all that packages that get held or address changes because of my choice. No way for us as drivers to measure that.

    zero, they like to call the center and aggravate me for a re attempt instead. I didnt knock, I didt ring, I snuck on the porch, yada yada.

    I get a lot of that. You must deliver in an undesirable area.

    Yes I love the he didn't knock ( most of my customers complain they think I'm the cops) or there was no info notice I didn't wait long enough. I always laugh at my sups and then serious as can be I say why? I mean honestly what's my incentive not to knock or leave a notice( I have to scan one) why wouldn't I leave it?

    I have one esignature on my route, the customer mistakenly thought that I would be able to leave their wine on the porch. Other than that...nada. I have never had a delivery time window. I would say that MyChoice is an utter failure. For only slightly more money, a customer can simply rent a PO box at their local UPS store.

    its the runners who f it up for everyone..dammit. I have seen some boxes from a couple of different accounts which say "ring bell or knock" right in the delivery address on the thermal there is a problem with some people not knocking.

    We were short on info notices and got a box of yours with the my choice option and were told not to use them.
    We have better ideas to keep the customer happy.It's called attempt and go pick it up at the ups store.
    Our diads now even prompt us OK to ADL.
    When delivering your undelivered pkgs to the ups store,you sheet it as
    left at "other" retail store.
    My choice will never take off,it's a stupid idea.

    That is what I ask the consignee when I go back. I also tell them, "If you have this problem with every UPS person, maybe the problem is not with us." Unfortunately, I am really snarky when I say it, so I doubt that anyone gets the point.

    If the customer falsely accuses me of not ringing or knocking, then they can forget about me making any sort of extra effort to get them their package.

    If, on the other hand, they are honest and say "hey, I must have been in the shower" (or asleep, or next door, or whatever) when I rang the bell, then I will go to great lengths to make a second attempt, including having dispatch give them my cell phone# so that they can call me directly and meet me someplace.

    I really hate liars, especially when they are basically accusing me of not doing my job.
