How to refuse shipment?

 4:30 pm on Jun 29, 2011 (gmt 0)


I never refused a shipment before, but just for future reference how does this process work?

I know most of the time my shipping carrier just leaves my package on my steps when I order something online; so how would I be able to refuse shipment on this package if it's left at my house?

Also, when you refuse a package; does the sender get charged with the shipping costs to return the package?

Thank you,

Generally, you can put a sign on the door or in a location seen but where it cannot be tampered with saying, "No UPS Deliveries".

If they leave the package you can always NOT open the package, call UPS with the tracking number, get proof online that they just dropped it off and that no one signed for it, except maybe the driver and have them pick it up and return to sender at no charge to you. Etc.

If we want to refuse a package we have to do so while the driver is here. If they drop and leave, they will not take it back during a subsequent visit. The sender would be required to pay the return postage. If they have an account they are automatically charged. If it is retail, then I believe they have to pay COD.

If I didn't order it, its addressed to me and its left then it is a gift, that's the law. Of course the law may be different where you live.

What is this crap about them leaving stuff on your porch?

If they did that to me I would deny that I ever received it..

I wouldn't do this to get something for free I would do it to illustrate why that is a really stupid thing to do.

leaving stuff on your porch

That's been my experience about half the time when no one is home. Isn't it determined by the shipper whether or not they need a signature?

Sometimes even if I am home, the driver will ring the doorbell but by the time I get there he's halfway down the street.
