Still Struggling with FedEx Deliveries

Posted by: Rick

While we have had some success with FedEx deliveries, over the past few days they have regressed.

If you recall, we get our USPS mail as well as UPS deliveries to a row of mailboxes at the Wooden Shoe Ranch close to the state line south of Laramie. That is going very well. Sometimes a package is too big to fit in the mail box or package drop boxes, and we have to meet the UPS driver or pick up a package at the post office in Laramie. But, most of the time the deliveries are available for pickup at the mail boxes.

FedEx delivers directly to our door--or, has so far while the weather has been good. But, sometimes if a package is routed through Cheyenne, they think the address is not valid. Somehow, they come up with an alternative address often using our physical address in Red Feather Lakes. This results in phone calls from the FedEx delivery guy in Red Feather Lakes asking how to find us. Lengthy and sometimes multiple conversations occur until we convince them to just send the package to Laramie and it will find its way to us.

This photo shows the results of one of those recent conversations. It is on its second "corrected address" label, correcting it back to the original address.

Yesterday, something from Amazon got rerouted and we finally got on the phone to FedEx to try to straighten it out. We'll see if we get a package today!

Well, at least most packages are reaching you. This will probably be one of those things that never quite gets worked out—you’ll wind up having to wrangle with it a bit in perpetuity. Don’t you think?
