Has anyone received their catalog yet for the 2nd part of the Langs auction? Apparently Fed Ex was requiring signatures on delivery and will re-deliver with no signature next day if nobody is home to sign for it. Apparently Kelleher instructed Fed Ex signatures were not required but Fed Ex being Fed Ex missed that part.

Not yet. Yes, the signature part was dropped a while ago. They ship from Germany or Hong Kong and that may have had something to do with it. It was a needless pain.

Email received said being shipped from Hong Kong yesterday. Indirect signature required - have never had to sign for these.

Relax!

I have probably received in excess of 50 Fedex signature required packages in the last 6 months. I have not signed for a single package - they are left on the steps of my front door inside a fenced area. On such packages, if you view the signature on the delivery tracking, you will see "COVID 19" or "C19" or similar - all those are written by the fedex delivery driver.

In short, the sender gets nothing for the extra that was paid. On outbound Fedex packages I quit using signature required more than 6 months ago for that reason.

Not sure what my insurance, that covers both inbound and outbound shipments, would do - prefer not to find out.

I still sign for Fedex packages. Just not the Kelleher catalog because they dropped the requirement.

Edit to add: Perfect timing. My Fedex driver just dropped off three massive cartons of double wall stainless steel stove pipe that was not mine. LOL

FedEx shouldn't be charging for a service they aren't performing. The FedEx delivery man told me that I need to tell senders to use "Direct Signature Required" if I want a shipment held for signature. The standard offer FedEx sells is evidently "Indirect Signature Required", but it is actually just the same as ordinary delivery.

I'm using USPS Express Mail until FedEx stars getting signatures again.

If nothing else, recent philatelic auction results have been extremely interesting and have sparked new energy into the forum.

It's also sparking me into thinking it's a good time to sell.
