Question about note left at door.

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by Coca Cola Delivery Man87, Jul 4, 2019.

  1. hello ,

    I don't work for UPS.
    However, I have a question about a note left at door for UPS delivery driver to leave a package at the door(I would not be home).

    He left the package , but took the note.

    What does UPS do with door notes left by package recipients?

    We take it for proof to leave the pkg , we still aren’t allowed to do this for sig req but occasional will....if something was wrong with your delivery don’t be a snitch and call UPS ...we know where you live

    An "sdn" (signed delivery note) essentially reliquinshes our responsibility for the package. The note goes into a sdn file at the end of the day which then theoretically gets audited by a supervisor and stored for records. The customer has no chance for refund when they leave an sdn, but it ensures that regardless of the contents inside the pkg or where the delievery takes place, we'll leave it. Common at apartments where we are discouraged from leaving pkgs at the front door.

  6. How long does the SDN stay on file? Its not a big deal , my items were delivered. i was just curious because I've left notes before and the delivery driver never took the note, they just left the package.

    At my building, all the SDNs go into a driver file. The file is thrown out sometime after the driver retires.

    Op, are u talking about signed delivery notices or signed status door tags (FedEx)

    Or just a plain piece of paper with the tracking number and your signature?

    If it's the latter, it's based on the drivers discretion & if the delivery point is relatively safe from porch pirates since it's a gray area.

    Direct or Adult signature, no friggin way unless they want to be fired if u report a missing package afterwards.

    Why would anyone give a turd? What a stupid question unless the OP is worried about a hand writing analysis in a murder trial. It's a piece of paper for Christ sake.

    You sound like a scammer, wanting to know how long the note is held so you can file a claim. Dont worry about how long its on file.

    How would the driver even sheet the package in the last case? He'd have to forge a signature and yeah he'd be getting fired that day.

    I did once put a package in a locker system before trying to release it and realizing it was signature required. I called my center manager over it at the locker system. He told me that I should not sheet the package and that he would sheet it for me.

    I never assume that a note on somebody's door is for me so I mind my own business and never read them.

    UPS can barely keep track of their drivers on GPS and to think that a random info notice stuffed into a air envelope can be found is just hilarious.

    When we were on paper the sdns were to be attached to the back of the delivery records.

    I didn't get paid to read notes.
    I ignored any note on the door.
    Especially the Baby Sleeping Don't ring bell notes.
    I rang those bells 3 times.
