Why do I have to sign for my package?

Why do I have to sign for my package?

Destri Destri
I have been getting packages from EF for years, and for the first time ever, I am supposed to sign for my package. Might not seem like a big deal, but I live in a huge apartment complex and the mailman refuses to go to anyone's door with a package. So I got this notice in my mailbox saying it was taken back to the post office.

Again this might not seem like a big deal, but we have no car and I am disabled, so paying a taxi to take me a long way away (where the post office is located) is a problem.

So, I ask, why all of a sudden do I have to sign for my package???

Was it maybe a larger size than 'normal'? And did you ask the post office if they had a reason for making you sign this time?

You may also be able to request redelivery; explain the scenario and (first of all) find out why your mailman refuses to go to your door. Is there a doorman or a central location where packages are left? I live in a NYC apartment building and packages always come to my door.

We don't require signatures for packages, but at times, it can be up to the delivery person's discretion. Apartment complexes are examples. A signature means that they don't leave a package at the door that can possibly be stolen. That notice they gave you should have an option for redelivery, as DeliciousSurprise mentioned. I would recommend having it delivered to a main leasing office, which may be more helpful about bringing your package to your door for you, or at least holding it so you can get it from them.

I live in an apartment complex and my mailman has no problem leaving $200+ orders right in front of my door. In fact, he doesn't even knock. UPS makes me feel a little safer. I've started getting things delivered UPS to my work cause I know I'll be here and I don't want a package sitting in front of my door for 8 hours. I live in a pretty shady place.

I would say to call the post office. Tell them you need it redelivered. Next time, when you're expecting it, leave a note with a signature saying where you're expecting the package from, the name it's addressed to, and that you give permission to leave it at the door. That's always worked for me even with other carriers.

I have never had to sign for my packages, of course I do not live in apartment. Maybe there is a guard or someone that could sign for you and keep at the front desk? If it is like that if not then maybe you need to talk with you mail man. Just explain to him what is up and maybe he can bring u packages, but if you live in a big one. I could see not wanting to go up the elevator, down the hall to everyone's door. UPS is probably your best bet though.
