Be aware that when choosing FEDEX ground (which seems to be the cheapest), your package will ship "signature required." If you step up the couple of bucks to UPS ground, no signature is required.

I wish they would add this warning when checking out as I always forget about it and since I am cheap ******* I always choose the cheapest courier. Doh!

Re: Quick tip when ordering from AtlanticBritish about shipping

I've found its hit or miss w Fedex on that. Sometimes they just leave those types of packages on my front steps and sometimes they leave a note to sign. But if you order 4 rotors or anything over 50# I have found they leave them :)

Also my 10lb dog bit the Fedex man once so now he just leaves stuff when he can and doesn't risk a comeback.

Re: Quick tip when ordering from AtlanticBritish about shipping

From a shipper's perspective, that pricing structure doesn't make much sense. Requesting the carrier (both UPS or FedEx) to obtain a signature upon delivery actually costs the shipper quite a bit more money than shipping the same package w/o siggie required.

I always ask that signature be required so if something happens I am covered. I sure wouldn't want my parts sittin on the front porch and walking off.

I am never home during the day, so whenever I can I ask the shipper to send expensive stuff to my office as someone is always here Mon-Fri, whether they decide to send it sig required or not.

i have never had a problem with AB or FedEx and they leave a package at my door 2 or 3 times a month between the RRC and Disco.

I hate sig. require. since I'm not home during drop of hours. My past 2 buys from AB have been non sig. and arrived VERY quick. Nothing but praise to AB
