I can't remember if its Fedex or UPS.. or both.. but they won't leave anything at the gate at my house. They could easily leave it in front of the gate.. or reach over the gate and set the package down.. but no. So then i run into the issue of having to leave the gate open for them. Which means i have to be VERY actively tracking my package and/or leave the dogs locked up in the house which is a huge pain in the butt.
But a lot of times there are "random" delays.. or they go without updating the tracking notices. It seems like USPS seems to do the best.
