Why does Amazon need my help to deliver a package?

I'm supposed to get a package on Saturday, and they sent me this e-mail:

A driver might contact you by text message, chat or call for help delivering your order.


Huh?

Is your address hard to find? Is the item large and might need two people to carry? Just guessing.

Found a similar thread from several weeks ago.

There's nothing at all unusual about my address.

This has been on every Amazon shipping notice for the last two months. It's boilerplate. Ignore it.

My place IS hard to find, but they have never called. They just drop the package on my neighbors lawn or something like that. I saw and AMZ guy throwing packages over an 8' fence on my street yesterday. I ain't ordering anything from amz until after xmas.

I haven't noticed the notice but boiler plate makes sense.

They use a lot of very casual driver who may have no idea where any given address might be, especially if they're running late and might miss a guaranteed delivery date.

Yes, and Amazon will just give them an impossible amount of packages and they spend all day into the night trying to keep up.

We got to Amazon packages yesterday from a guy wearing a UPS outfit and driving a personal pickup with an extension off the back filled with packages. He drove back and forth past our house 3 times before he stopped in front and delivered the packages. I had a nice chat with him about how he was "helping out" the drivers who are apparently working until late night. I assumed he is a worker in the local UPS transfer facility, but who knows!

I did get a call after dark from an Amazon driver (in Houston area) because there is a gate allowed by the City that blocks off one of the streets and is not on any map. She was looking for a way to get to the house.

I have used a UPS Store to receive packages for over a decade...just this week I got a call from an Amazon delivery driver who needed help finding it.
