Is there an age requirement to sign for a newegg package?

I bought a computer and monitor from newegg, totalling $1100. I am not going to be home when it is delivered and was wondering if my 16 year old son could sign off on the packages without any problem. Ups.com says "Signature required. At the request of the sender, UPS will obtain the recipient's signature. The sender will be provided a printed copy and may also view the recipient's signature online."


Thanks.

Anybody can sign for it. If it is adult signature required, 21 and over is needed. However, regular packages only require a signature of anybody in the household, you can also sign the slip they leave.

How do you know what type of signature is required? It doesn't say anything about an age on the UPS tracking page.

Newegg doesn't send stuff adult signature required. Your son can sign for it.

Fed Ex, UPS, and USPS all have their own standards and requirements. Newegg will ship through one of those. You didn't think they would bring it themselves, did you?

The requirements for receiving the packages can be found on all three of their websites. Do you own work!!! :D

Evidently you, for asking us instead of your preferred shipper.

Obviously I looked around and found nothing about an age, who do you think you are to be able to come on here an be a complete smartass? Read the post before you go off acting like you're hot stuff. OBVIOUSLY I am aware NEWEGG doesn't ship because I made it CLEAR in my post that UPS was shipping it..

OP, I'm sorry people seem to have such an issue tonight. While I've seen this before with really obvious questions this doesn't seem like one of those.

I know you can't ship "adult" material through the mail anymore so I'm guessing anyone can sign for it. In the "olden days" you could ship alcohol and need to have someone 21+ sign for it. But you can't do that, so I'm guessing anyone can. Just have your kid do it, and tell him to act as adult as he can. It should be fine.

Ive never needed a signature for anything from newegg. Signatures are really stupid anyways, anyone can put down any signature and the ups or fedex guy wont know the difference.

Um? since when? did they pass a law since this morning? Because you could definitely ship alcohol this.morning. and someone 21+ was required to sign. and I know you could ship hazerdous materials like gunpowder this morning....

While his let me Google that for you searches were horrible and didn't answer the question, and he therefore is a smartass, anyone could have Googled the question and seen the 100s of answers from100s of forum questions... So his basic point stands. the OP should have done a 2 second search. and if he wanted a definitive answer asked UPS as no one here is UPS. there's already wrong info in here about shipping "adult" products.

My local UPS store says they can't do it. I know it can be done because wine woot is in business. Perhaps people can't but stores can? At any rate the OP won't have a problem.

I agree as well. I just bought a PSU from newegg and they didn't need a sig. Does he even need to worry about this?

That may be it, or if its not an actual UPS office, but an indepedant store that uses UPS some will refuse "risky" stuff. probably liability. I have had chemicals shipped from eBay though. My guess would be its state law they can't if you tell them its alcohol. Just like wine.Woot can't ship wine to me due to state laws. if you're not stuck in one of those states not sure.

The point is, this is not a question seeking an opinion. Such as, "Which is better, a 590 or 6990?" Or, "How do I fix the microstuttering?"

The OP is asking about a company's policy, one which is clearly outlined on their home page.

The point was, he should do his own work.

*smack* where do you think Google results come from? People asking questions on forums such as this. :pfff:  The results on your cute little script toy shows it.

Now to answer the OPs question like a mature person. Logistics is my field so you're in luck. An adult signiture is not required from any of the major shippers unless its specifically specified that an adult signature is required for receipt of an age-restricted material.

Did you totally ignore my latest comment? Just couldn't resist playing the wise guy, could you?

No, the google result that is relevant is the one leading to the shippers own website.

Again, this isn't an opinion seeking question, but rather, the OP want's someone else to do his digging.

The purpose of my original comment was not to be smart, but to make a statement.

I think your anger and lashing out at complete strangers for no apparent reason is a result of sexual frustration or possibly mommy issues. I suggest counseling.

Seriously, PCgamer, you will feel much better when you come out. I did. :lol: 

Now, to be super serial...

Brian may have been asking someone to dig for him, he didnt say that you personally had to do anything for him, there are plenty of other people on the forum like myself who were perfectly willing to answer his question for him. You were the one that "just had" to come and show your ass.

My sexuality is no one's business but my own. You all act as if being gay is something shameful.

I am kind to people on this site and try to be as helpful as I can. But when someone comes on here asking questions in the Systems section of Tom's that has nothing to do with building a system, I find that wrong. There are plenty of people who need help with their computers, and all he needed was to go on the UPS site (as I demonstrated), or pick up a phone. Maybe I could have been a little more tactful in making that point, but I did try and be kind by keeping it in a joking way and even using a smiley face at one point.

LOL, I am a gay guy, completely out of the closet, and have been since I was 21, I'll be 27 in 2 months. I'm in a relationship for the past 3 years with the same guy, plan to marry him. That doesn't mean I don't have a sense of humor.

Again, Brian didn't do anything to you, you didn't have to post anything at all in this thread. His post whether it be out of laziness, off topic, out of place or genuine ability to not know how to find the information he needed is not a personal affront to you unless you choose to make it so.

I assumed he came to a tech forum asking people who have purchased from a very popular tech website about their policies who have experience with it they can relay. Seems like the question was appropriate here to me.

In all seriousness on the sexuality issue, I sincerely hope you aren't having issues with it, I've been there, its not a pretty place. Researching a gay gene in combination with the attitude to me is a genuine cause for concern. Maybe its just me, but personally, I'm not interested in whether I was "born this way" or "conditioned" to be so, it seems to me someone researching such things may be in distress about it.

I disagree. I find this section is for people who are building a system and/or have built a system and need technical advice.

Not someone who is curious about UPS's signature policy which could be ascertained by going on their website or picking up a phone.
