Actually, that's what Biotest wants the FedEx drivers to do. This is how it worked when I got my last order - Biotest prints up the shipping label, and puts a release number (REL # 1234567 - whatever) on it, telling them to leave the package if no one is home, and Biotest is responsible for the package. You get your package on the day that you expect it, and Biotest saves some cash. If you are having anything sent through any shipping company, you should check out their policies online, and let the shipper know if you have special instuctions. Otherwise, you might be out a lot of money.
