Why does Whiteflash prefer to ship via Fed Ex "Hold for Pick-Up"?
For security reasons the standard Whiteflash method of delivery is Fed Ex "Hold for Pickup". The package is securely delivered to a staffed Fed Ex location where the recipient is required to show identification in order to recieve the package. The package is fully insured by Whiteflash up to the point of delivery.
It is important to understand that normal Fed Ex deliveries can be simply left at the recipent's door. Even packages sent by "signature only" can be delivered to anyone at the address. Fed Ex also allows customers to place a note in their file that instructs the delivery person to leave the package at the door if someone is not there to sign for it. Some customers are unaware that such a note is in their Fed Ex file.
Because of the value and importance of the products we sell, every precaution is taken to provide for a secure delivery. Many customers also find this a more convenient method as they can arrange to pick up the package on their own schedule.
In some cases special arrangements can be made to ship directly to a business or residential address. A special waiver is required absolving Whiteflash of any liability resulting from a package being left unattended at the address, or allowing someone other than the specific recipient to sign for it.
