Heck, there's an implied assumption that UPS actually rang the doorbell!There is no rhyme or reason to their package delivery methods. I have a direct view of the driveway. When I around, I have seen them: 1. Ring the doorbell AND knock or,2. Just ring doorbell or3. Just knock or4. Drop and runIf you are in an area where potential package theft might be an issue, UPS has a service online called "My Choice".. Free to sign up. You can, for free, change your package delivery to "Will Call" and pick it up at their local office.Linky: http://www.ups.com/mychoice/ You get one change for free. If you needed to reschedule, either back to your home or somewhere else, there's a $5 charge per tracking number if you do it online. I don't think you can do the change with the CS reps over the phone. At least I couldn't when I recently did a "Will Call" change for the delivery of our new cell phones. You may be able to divert packages to your work address, but I am not sure. I didn't check for that feature when I used the service recently.Check also, this may be offered - changing your delivery day to one where you will be home, instead of one when you are away. You can receive email alerts both when a package is scheduled to be delivered to you, with its estimated window, and an email once it has been delivered. That would allow you to contact a neighbor and ask them to pick up the package off of your doorstep if you wanted. Laura
