Also I was told by representatives from K-Var that all packages valued at over $100 are live signature required. They did not respond when I pointed out the fact that I only ordered $85 in parts and it was their ridiculous shipping cost that put my order over $100.
Oh well, whatever. I looks like I just need to pay more attention to the fine print of shipping rules from various vendors and choose more wisely next time.

I have my local delivery drivers trained to put packages in the truck and lock the door, but the "must have signature in person" stuff either goes in the truck or back to sender; if the vendor gives me any crap I call the credit card people and tell them to remove a fraudulent charge.
I understand vendors don't want to have merchandise stolen, and I know that UPS and Fedex sometimes add "personal signature" on of their own accord, but a big percentage of the time "residence" means "NOBODY IS HOME, MORON."
