A Fed Ex driver was roaming the Village last Friday night to see if there was someone who could help her figure out how to get deliveries to people. She said she had at least twenty packages in her vehicle with incomplete addresses. She was stressed at the inability to make her deliveries. She received help from Sandra Hudgel who was instrumental in supplying the information for this blog post.
When ordering online, the shipping method is not always apparent. As a result, people do not always use an address that will allow the shipment to be delivered at their location. It would be helpful if you put your physical street address on one line and the 2050 Vacation Village Drive address with your box number on another line. This should give all delivery companies a way to deliver your package.
FedEx and UPS do not deliver to the Clubhouse. In addition, both FedEx and UPS frequently hand packages off to the United States Postal Service. In the event that your package does end up with the United States Postal Service for delivery, it will be left in one of the package boxes that are located with the mail boxes outside the clubhouse. If the package is too large for the package box, you might be required to go to the post office to pick it up.
Another option is that you can choose to have packages addressed to yourself at Safeway, 900 West Deuce of Clubs, Show Low, AZ 85901. Walgreens allows this as well. Packages can be addressed to the individual at Walgreens, 5160 South White Mountain Road, Show Low, AZ 85901.
Also, residents can drop off Fed Ex packages at Safeway in Show Low but they have to be labeled and ready for shipping.
Village resident’s packages are frequently left at the sales office. The sales office is not manned 24/7 so your package could easily disappear. In addition, the sales team doesn’t always know how to find a resident.
If you follow the above advice, your package woes (and those of the stressed Fed Ex driver) should be alleviated.
