Did you get a fedex tracking number at that point? I've given fedex the OK to leave stuff on my porch in the past but this is expensive enough and, likely in packaging that makes it obviously so, that I don't want it sitting there even if the weather is nice while I'm at work.
No you don't get a fedex tracking number. They will leave a notice on your door if you are not home. I'll just have them leave the notice on the door and then tell them when to deliver the package so I know I or my wife will be home.
