I don't know about Canada, but in the U.S., UPS and Fedex may just leave it on your doorstep or leave a note on your door, depending on the value of the item. Usually they will give you three chances for delivery before returning to the sender. Nowadays, you get a tracking number and you can track your package on each truck as it comes closer to your location. The last screen it will show is "Out for Delivery", which means it's on one of the trucks in the city going house to house.
I dont understand...
I don't have a physical street address so if I ordered anything I'd kinda have to find a way to explain how to get on this street.
Could you elaborate? If you are in like an apartment complex, they will leave it at the office. Any questions?
