I've been reading through the reviews here and I'm seeing that "delivery exception" seems to be a standard excuse for not delivering on time and it comes in multiple flavors.I too have been the victim of this response.

Most recently (Saturday to be exact), I was expecting a package that in the morning was showing on their tracking site as out for delivery. Around 4:00, no package, so thought I'd check. Sure enough, it was the dreaded delivery exception. This time for address.

I called, got customer service, they read the address to me. It was my exact address. They've delivered here before (often inefficiently), but suddenly it seems that my address no longer exists. No I can't talk to any one with any authority at the local center, not allowed.

The earliest they can schedule a new attempt will be Tuesday.

I have made myself a pledge.

If I have a choice of a delivery between Fed Ex and UPS or for that matter the post office, I'll take the other option, even if it means paying more.At least I'll get my delivery on time and without elevated blood pressure.

Drivers lie to get home early period happen to me today. I wait all day and u know they never came. Open windows ..


Is wish I had used any shipping service other than fedex. They are horrible at everything!


I agree. This is now my 4th delivery failure from Fedex that I've experienced in the past 7 deliveries. Amazon needs to dump Fedex.


That's what's happening to me right now with the Gear VR.

They refuse to change the address or let me pick it up at the Fed Ex store (it's been there for 4 days and I paid for overnight shipping) and Samsung says they can't do anything since it's already been shipped.

I'm calling tomorrow and DEMANDING that they let me pick up MY package that they failed to deliver or even try to fix.


I too experience this delivery exception.The same exact thing occured.

It was a Saturday delivery that said it was out for delivery then all of a sudden says delivery exception. I also have had numerous packages delivered to my home address and my address is not unknown. This sounded like my delivery may have been out of his way even though you are assigned packages on your route area or Im done for the day and driver wants to go home. I was scgeduled to go on vacation Saturday and was waiting for delivery that day then leave out.

I had to wait 3 extra days.So upset and disappointed


Same old story: I track my package online with great anticipation, wait all day for the truck to arrive, and then get a 'delivery exception' door tag instead of my property when I've been here all day.I always choose UPS over Fedex, and will tell anyone who will listen.



Update: I got my package...I had to walk all the way down my mile long road and across a highway...in 95 degree weather. Only to find my package smashed and with a hole ripped in the packaging... :(
