FedEx pickup options

Many of the Qs in the FAQs on FedEx.com have to do with FedEx pickup options.

  • Will FedEx pick up at my home?
  • How do I schedule a pickup?
  • Can I set up recurring pickups at my business?

In this section, I walk you through how to set up a FedEx pickup.

Schedule a one-time pickup online 

You have a few options when it comes to scheduling a one-time pickup with FedEx online.

You can also use the FedEx mobile app (though this section focuses on how to do it online).

Option 1: Create a label with FedEx Ship Manager

  1. First, create an account or log in to an existing account.
  2. Next, create your shipping label. You can also access this page through the main FedEx.com navigation bar under Shipping > Create a Shipment and log in from there.

Enter your name, email address, phone number, and address. You’ll also enter the address you’re shipping to and the receiver information.

3. Next, place your pickup request, search for a location, and schedule your pickup under the Pickup/Dropoff option on the right-side panel.

4. From here, schedule a pickup or choose to drop off packages at a FedEx location. When scheduling a pickup, it’ll ask if there’s a regularly scheduled pickup date and time or if a delivery driver needs to be dispatched to the pickup location.

That’s it!

Option 2: Schedule a pickup without creating a label

Schedule recurring FedEx pickups

You can also set up recurring pickups with FedEx. This is useful for:

  • Diplomatic posts
  • Financial institutions
  • Large businesses with multiple locations
  • High-volume shippers
  • And more

Schedule a recurring pickup with “Recurring FedEx pickup.”

fedex pickup options

You’ll find a section explaining your options for recurring deliveries and the benefits of using this service. FedEx says, “It’s a time-saving alternative to repeatedly dropping off shipments or making individual pickup requests.”

The site also explains that FedEx Express and FedEx Ground Automated Pickup offer a customizable solution, so you can easily plan pickups when you need them. FedEx waives the pickup fee on weeks with no pickups.

Contact your FedEx account executive or call customer service at 1-800-GoFedEx to schedule either of these two services.

How to use FedEx drop boxes

FedEx drop boxes offer an easy, convenient, and no-contact way to drop off your packages.

Keep in mind that the max package size for drop boxes is 20” x 12” x 6”.

To use a FedEx drop box:

  1. Prepare your items for shipping using your own packaging or FedEx packaging (envelopes are usually offered for free at the top of the drop box). Make sure your package isn’t bigger than the maximum size.
  2. Create your label online and stick it to your package.
  3. Drop your prelabeled package in a nearby drop box. Find a location near you.

Find frequently asked questions and track the door tag number for the packages you put in the drop box.
