Lost or Stolen Packages:
For orders placed on Fifth & Ninth without utilizing Route Package Protection, refer to the following recommendations to assist you in locating your package:
- Please double-check that the shipping address you provided is accurate and up to date. A correct address is crucial to ensuring successful delivery.
- There are instances when USPS and UPS update tracking information as "delivered" a few hours or even days before the actual delivery. We kindly ask you to allow at least 48 hours to pass to see if the package is indeed delivered.
- Check if your carrier placed the package in a safe location out of view such as: garage, porch, side/back entrance, with others in your household or a neighbor.
- If you're unable to locate your package, consider visiting your local USPS office. Bring your tracking information along, as they might have additional insights into the exact GPS location where the postal carrier delivered your package.
