    "to" or "at" which preposition is best suited in this sentence?

    1. A vehicle will arrive at 5 o'clock to pick you and it will drop you straight to your home by 5:30.
    2. A vehicle will arrive at 5 o'clock to pick you and it will drop you straight at your home by 5:30.


    Which preposition is best suited in this sentence. If there is a better and more natural way of communicating the same message kindly do tell me then.

    Regards,

    You've written two sentences: A vehicle will arrive at 5 o'clock to pick you up. It will drop you off at your house by 5:30.

    Probably more usual:

    We will send a car by for you. It should be there at 5 o'clock.
