It is frustrating, I agree. Why not to send to another address?

I bought something from a prominent camera retailer who, when they sent something out, made a signature required upon receipt. So since I was at work I missed the first delivery attempt from FedEx and will likely miss the second and third attempts due being also at work as well. So I login and see if I can either I change the delivery day to a day when I will be around or hold at the local FedEx facility so I can stop by and pick it up. Neither of those options were available. Neither was redirecting it to a friend or neighbor so they could sign for it.

B&H can ship to a different address than yours. I have used that in the past.

I think it is an options for some others dealers also. Try to address your goods to an address you know someone will be there as a friend, relative or neighbor.

All the best,
