Normally, we do not have problems with FedEx Home or Ground Delivery services. The driver will usually leave the package at the door and if the item is more expensive, we request to have it delivered with a signature required.
When no signature is required for delivery, the driver usually opts to leave the item in an inconspicuous place, like the side door or back porch. It is, however, possible for the item to be taken from the front door in rare cases.
Please keep in mind that if the item is delivered but stolen, FedEx (or UPS or USPS) is NOT RESPONSIBLE for its reimbursement.They have delivered the item as per the request of the shipper.
Thus, if you are the shipper and ship to an apartment complex, I would advise to opt for the signature option, especially if the item inside the box has a large dollar value.
