Absolutely, YES. UPS, Fedex, USPS all make regular deliveries to homes in The Villages. And just wait until the holiday season, where you'll see UPS delivery golf cart and trailers.

Although they can deliver to the house, ups and fedex usually pass on their packages to the usps, and it is delivered to your mailbox, or to the large common mailboxes at the mail station. If the box is too large for the common boxes, then usps will deliver to your house. So, you will get most of your packages at the mail station.

Almost all of our packages have been delivered to our door by UPS or FedEx. The few exceptions are from venders using USPS. Most mailed medications will be delivered to your box at the mail station.

Same here. UPS comes directly to our door in the big brown truck.

This is absolutely not true. The packages are not "passed on" as if FedEx and UPS do not want to deliver them.There is a service that cost's less whereby FedEx moves the package to the local USPS facility and then they deliver it. Used to be called "smart post", don't know if that's still the case. But that is a service the shipper decides on, not FedEx. In fact, FedEx flies a great percentage of the first class mail on their aircraft to various cities. It is the first cargo removed from the plane (maybe after the haz...I'm starting to forget! YAY!) and trucks bring it to the local post offices.
I would bet some of the above applies to UPS also. Never worked there so I don't know.

I'm not sure what you mean. Most of my Amazon orders arrive at the mail station, not at my house. But, they start out as a ups package with a ups tracking number, and sometimes fedex. I didn't say who decided to pass it on to the usps, but it is usually passed on and delivered to the mail station.
