    I see on some posts about quilts, sewing machines and other packages being left at mailboxes, on porches, etc. They are out in the weather and some may say "take me" to some dishonest jerk passing by. If you don't want this to happen, write "PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ON PORCH" or whatever on a package (if you don't have signature confirmation on it which I do recommend, especially for pricey items). Then the recipient can go pick it up at the PO. If you receive packages, try leaving a note for your carrier to not leave anything that won't fit in your box. Then they can leave you a slip to go pick it up. Much safer.

    I would never send a quilt or such without delivery confirmation.

    They will leave a pkg on the porch with delivery confirmation. The only way to insure this will not happen is if you require a signature upon delivery :wink: :D:D:D

    Even with DC, they can scan it and leave it. With signature confirmation it has to be signed for. It also has to be signed for if it is insured for over a certain amount.

    You also need to make sure you do not have a signature release on file with the carrier in order for them not to leave it when a signature is required.

    My PO has a form you can file if you do not want packages left on your doorstep. They will not leave anything that does not fit in the mailbox if they have that form on file.

    All things considered, you usually have no control over how someone ships things to you...only over how you ship to others.
