United Parcel Service (UPS) is one of the biggest parcel delivery service providers in the world. It has millions of customers from all over the world. The best thing about UPS is that it provides excellent delivery service to its customers and never causes any kind of delay in delivering the packages. That is the reason why UPS people from all over the world always prefer to choose UPS when they need to deliver mail or packages.

Can I Pick Up A Package From UPS Before Delivery?

Since UPS has a lot of branches in the US, it is seen that many customers want to directly pick their package from the branch office itself apart from waiting for a UPS representative to deliver the package at their home or office. That is why there is one common question that people very often used to ask – Can you pick up packages from UPS?

If you are a customer of UPS and have the same question in your mind, you must know that – Yes! UPS allows its customer to pick up their packages from their office before the delivery. It sometimes becomes convenient for the people who stay near the UPS office to pick up the package directly from the office, and thus they do not want to wait for the parcel to get delivered to their residence.

UPS Delivery Intercept:

UPS comes up with an excellent service which is known as UPS delivery intercept. In this service, the customers have the facility to interrupt their package at the last moment with the help of an automated tracking system. Sometimes a customer may need to change something at the last moment before their mail gets delivered to the recipient. In such a case, it becomes possible for the customer to make the required changes with their packages. The following are some kinds of changes that the customers will be able to go through UPS delivery intercept:

  • Return to sender: If at the last moment the sender decides that the mail or package should not be delivered to the recipient, then with the help of UPS delivery intercept, the package can be delivered to the sender.
  • Reschedule the delivery: If the sender does not want the package to be delivered on the scheduled day, with the help of the UPS delivery intercept service, he can easily hold the package for some time and reschedule the delivery date of the box as per his convenience.
  • Deliver the package to a different address: Sometimes, it may also happen that after sending the container, the sender may realize that he had sent the parcel to the wrong address or the recipient’s address has changed. In such a case, it becomes necessary to stop the package and correct the recipient’s address. UPS allows you to do that with the help of the UPS delivery intercept option.
  • Will call: This is another excellent service with the help of which you can hold the shipment of your package or mail so that the consignee can pick up the package from the UPS office.

The biggest question is how you can pick up the package from the UPS office before mail is delivered to the recipient. All that the shipper has to do to stop the packets from being delivered is to request a package intercept before the final delivery via the web or phone call.

Apart from the service mentioned above, the UPS also has two other excellent benefits such as:

  • Redirecting package to preferred UPS location: If you are a UPS My Choice Membership member, you can turn the package to any preferred UPS access point location before UPS delivers the package to the recipient. With the help of UPS My Choice Membership, the customer can also select a default location for sending the package for free.
  • Hold for pick up: UPS also comes up with a hold for pickup service, with the help of which it becomes possible for the customer to hold their package for an additional five days without any extra charges. All you need to do is call customer care and request them to hold the package. When the recipient becomes ready for pick up, the sender can contact customer care and tell them to give the package to the recipient. In such a case, the recipient needs to take the ID proof and pick up the package from the UPS office. The recipient can take any Government-issued photo ID such as a driving license, passport, military ID, etc. If the recipient wants to send their representative, they can do so by giving an authorizing letter to the recipients to release the package.
