Does arrival at unit mean the book has been delivered?

I don't think so but I can't say for sure

I think it means it arrived at the last post office on its trip (or something like that).

It will say delivered when it is delivered.

Ange is correct. It means it's at your local PO waiting to be delivered to you ;)

I donīt think thatīs correct. When I lived in an apartment "Arrival at unit" meant it has been delivered to me.

Arrival at unit means it has arrived at that zip code.  It might not be the delivery zip it just means it got to that one.  If it is your zip code that means it should be delivered to you that day or the next depending on what time it arrived.  (it could be a late truck that missed the carriers)

"Attempted" means a notice was left and "delivered" means delivered.

Hope this helps!

I checked a DC from a game this morning and it said "arrival at unit at 2:33am with my town and zip code" ~ when I checked later in the day it said "delivered at 2:36pm". The book was in my mailbox when I got home at 5pm.

A book I sent says Arrival at Unit at 7:59 AM on 10/18/2007  and it hasn't changed since then. Hmmm.

They mystery was solved. It had been delivered but her mail was on hold at the PO since she was on vacation. She marked it received today.
