Goodbye missed deliveries.
If you have trouble receiving packages when you're not home, the UPS Access Point™ network can help. A UPS Access Point location is a neighborhood business--like a deli, dry cleaner, or coffee shop--that can accept and hold your eligible packages. Then, you pick them up when it's most convenient for you, even at night or on weekends.
These local businesses serve as an alternate delivery location for people who can't be home to accept a delivery, or live where packages can't safely be left. Today, many online merchants let you choose to have packages delivered straight to your nearest UPS Access Point location, right at checkout. And with nearly 9,000 UPS Access Point locations in the United States, UPS can help you get your packages on your schedule.
Returns are easy too. Drop off pre-labeled UPS Returns™ packages at any UPS Access Point location. No worries.
For even more control, try UPS My Choice® services. Get email or text alerts the day before your eligible package is to be delivered. Plan your schedule, or reroute the packages to a different address,* even a UPS Access Point location in your neighborhood. It's mobile and it's simple. See how UPS My Choice services can help you manage your deliveries.
*No additional fee applies for local delivery.
