I now have my TSW Nurburgring wheels now (was I hate FedEx)

Ok, this is the 3rd time FedEx has done this. I worked from home today since my TSW Nurburgring wheels were on the truck for delivery. 7pm comes around and I check the FedEX site again, the update was no one at home Why can UPS and the pizza always deliver but FedEx cant?!! I want my wheels now

I had my front door open, my garage doors open and my home office sits in front with a huge window to my front door. I think the driver just wanted to go home! I mean if they did come by they would have left something on the door!

Anyway, I called and complained to someone over seas I am sure. They marked the package hold for pickup.

So maybe tomorrow I will have them

Ok, I feel better now.

That's funny I'm more impressed with FedEX than UPS where I live. It might be that you have a bad local route guy. Hope you get them soon.

Fedex is 1000 times better than any other shipping company in my book. The exact thing that happened to you happened to me but with ups. They never came and posted that no one was home. I took the whole day off for it for nothing...I've never had a problem with fedex so its a surprise to hear. Good luck with your delivery!

Sorrry you had some delivery problems, I'm an aircraft technician for Fed-Ex so this is out of my control. Post some pics of those wheels when you have them put on.

If at all possible, I have Fed-Ex packages delivered to my office. The FedEx home drivers are independent contractors and never seem to meet their scheduled delivery dates. I've had packages in town and "on truck for delivery" for up to 5 days..

But FedEx commercial always delivers on time.

+1, fedex comes everyday to my office at the same time to pick up my packages. Even when it's raining. Hope you get your wheels today.

I went and picked them up at the FedEx office today! Woohoo! Sorry if I offended anyoen that works for FedEx. The office said they have had some issues. They said the driver used his phone for a map and I know my area does not come up on any GPS. However UPS finds me. In fact, FedEX next finds me, it just seems to be FedEx Ground that never can. They also did say he should have called since my number was on the label. Anyway I now have them and getting them put on tomorrow - pix to follow.

Ya FedEx in TN sucks to. UPS always shows up on time here and is the only way I will ship. The wheels look awesome by the way.

FedEx Express or FedEx Ground.

Believe me when I tell you, the drivers want all those boxes off their trucks. They don't want to have to bring anything back to the terminal and then have bring it back out again tomorrow.
