Have them deliver it to your work place. That's what I do. But then again, I work from home. :P
Anyways, I've always had the same delivery guy, and he always comes by around the same time so he's pretty predictable. To the point where him and i have built a rapport.
I've dealt almost exclusively with UPS on a bi-monthly basis for overseas shipments for the past 6 years and haven't had a problem with them. As long as you know the service you're buying in to and what to expect, it's not an issue. Then again, whenever I use UPS, the only service of theirs I use is one of their Worldwide Express/Expedited services. Super fast, tracked well and all brokerage fees are INCLUDED in the original shipping cost. The only thing extra are GST and PST (if applicable).
