Once upgraded, MyChoice members regain all access to the Membership features which include UPS tracking order, rescheduling, or redirecting delivery. Upgraded packages are usually delivered 1 to 2 days faster as well.

How do I track UPS SurePost?

What is a UPS Access Point?

A UPS Access Point is a selected location where it is convenient for the customers to pick up their parcels. UPS Access Points are usually located at grocery stores or petrol stations. With this delivery option, you will not get your UPS packages right at your front door. However, it will be more efficient if you wish to receive your package at a specific time that suits you. If you frequent the UPS Access Point for shopping or other purposes, it will not take additional time for you to receive your UPS packages.

Once your package arrives at UPS Access Point, you will get a notification via email or SMS. An identification document with a photo will be required to collect the goods. You can also drop off labeled and prepaid UPS Returns parcels at any UPS Access Point location. Any package dropped off at a UPS Access Point location must not exceed 20 kg in weight or 80 cm in length and must already include a UPS prepaid shipping label.

In case your UPS package’s status is shown as delivered but you have not found your package, you can start a claim. Either the sender or receiver can initiate a claim. However, as the sender keeps most of the supporting documents such as receipts, invoices, and UPS tracking numbers, we advise the sender to be the one handling the claims process.

Another status might include, "Shipment Ready for UPS Pickup,” meaning that the sender just created a shipping order, "Origin Scan" or "Pickup Scan,” meaning that UPS is delivering your packages. If the system shows invalid or no information found, you should ask the sender to investigate or re-deliver the item to you.

How do I know when I am going to receive my UPS package?

To find out when you are going to receive your UPS package, use Parcel Monitor’s UPS parcel tracking tool or the tracking tool on the UPS homepage. Go to either website, enter your UPS tracking number or tracking ID, then hit the Track button. The result that comes out will include the estimated arrival date of your package. Typically, UPS parcels are delivered between 9 am to 9 pm, Monday to Friday. Weekend delivery is only possible for some selected locations.

My tracking information from UPS says that a package has been delivered to my address but I didn’t receive it. What should I do?

If you have not received your UPS package and do not know its current location, make sure to check the status and delivery date of the package on Parcel Monitor or the UPS homepage. The UPS tracking tool on both websites will show you the current location of the package.

What should I do if I want to change my UPS delivery address?
