Fedex has an program called "Hold at Location (HAL)".
In this option, your shipment will be shipped by Fedex Ground (a 3-5 day time in transit) and instead of delivering to your home, your package will be delivered to a commercial location such as a FedEx Office (Kinko's), Walgreens, Albertsons, Kroger. (Note, we may add the option to ship by Express later).
As soon as it arrives at the location, you will receive an email notification from FedEx letting you know your package is available for pickup.
Anyone who has an photo ID with your original ship to address may pick up the package for you.
The advantages to the HAL program are Fedex HAL, but include:
- Packages are delivered to a secure location (no more porch thieves or careless drivers)
- If your package has "signature required" you will not have to deal with possibly missing a delivery
- The cost to ship the package may be less expensive because it is going to a commercial rather than a residential location.
- TKB offers a 5% off the shipping fee as an incentive for you to use the program.
