    if they are a customer, especially of good one, i would atleast go take a look at it.What kind of pavement do they have, blacktop, concrete, pavers? How large of a stain are we talking here, drips, puddles?

    You should go and look at the spot(s). They are not hard to clean up. This is one of the pros for parking in the street if at all safely possible. Let us know what you find.

    apply cat litter or oil dry and grind it into the leak area with your foot, real good.

    sweep it up and walk away.

    Use some sand, or take some dishwasher soap, put some on the spot and then spray the soap and spot with a hose, then you could take a broom n kinda scrub it a bit, at least thats what i do when I seal coat driveways.

    Since it is your customer, I believe I would have already been on the way over there to see what the problem was and to take care of it. Fresh oil spots are not that difficult to clean up, and even if it was left by the UPS driver, you might consider cleaning it up. Makes for good customer relations.
