How late does UPS deliver?
My tracking number says it’s out for delivery, but it’s 9. Could it still be out? Or is it not coming today? Or could my doormen have marked it wrong?
When does UPS change it to ‘delivered’?
Since writing this post Anonymous may have helped people, but has not within the last 4 days.

I’ve had a delivery as late as 8:30 at night, but it was the end of their shift. It’s possible that it’s out still and the delivery guy is just running behind, but the bigger chance is that it’ll be tomorrow and it’ll be updated to reflect that in a little bit.
I am in the area of the wake of the hurricane so could that effect it?
From the UPS website:
My shipment tracking status is “On Vehicle for Delivery”. What time will I receive my shipment?
The shipment has been dispatched to a UPS driver for delivery today. Other than time-definite air deliveries, shipments are generally delivered anytime between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (and sometimes later) to residences, and by close of business for commercial addresses. UPS cannot schedule a specific delivery time within that window. Up to three delivery attempts will be made, excluding weekends and holidays.
In the U.S. and Canada, shipments that don’t require a signature can be left in a safe place at the driver’s discretion. This could include the front porch, side door, back porch, or garage area. For residential deliveries that require a signature, you can leave instructions for the driver if no one will be home. For example, you can ask that the shipment be delivered to a neighbor who will be home. If an adult signature is required, and the sender has instructed us not to leave the shipment with a neighbor, we will make another delivery attempt on the next business day.
Um, like, you’re in the area where you lost power and houses were destroyed? or you got hit with some rain and it got windy?
