JACKxRAWR Say more :
OP here. The bastard didn't even knock and left the package in a post office the other side of town, even though I live five minutes from a sorting office.

One day I stood outside because the package tracking system said it was out for delivery. The ups guy never came, I called the place around here, he told his manager nobody was there.

@59 - I have the same story, except with $30 worth of pizza. I complained and they claimed to have knocked on every door in my apartment complex. Didn't get a refund or any sort of store credit. Not ordering from them again until I move.

#66 If you can get a video recording and accounts from your neighbours saying it didn't happen, then you can bring up a suit. Also, they will probably do it still if you move.

@68 - It's $30, I'm not gonna fight over that. Bigger fish to fry. Haha. Their mistakes will add up eventually. I can recall plenty of times I would have ordered from them but instead did a pick-up from one of their other stores 10 minutes away. It's just this specific location, their other stores in my area have great service.

All you have to do is call and they will change your delivery guy, especially if there have been several complaints about them. We had a delivery guy purposely try to deliver before open and after closing at our store. Or go to the back door (which isn't use) if we happened to be there early or late waiting FOR the package. Every time when our hours are clearly posted. It took a week to two weeks to get packages, after the third time there was no denying he was just being a prick and we called the office. No more problems!

Call the local office, and tell them what happened. I had a delivery driver do something similar to me two days in a row. Ended up getting fired because he obviously wasn't delivering the packages

I had the same problem. Our letter carrier just decides not to deliver to our apartment building for a few weeks at a time. We have a post office five minutes away also, but our mail goes through the office twenty minutes away. When we complained, they said the best option was for us to purchase a pobox. So, we HAVE to pay to receive our mail, and a lot of companies don't like to ship to poboxes.

@44 not completely, a lot of these drivers have completely unrealistic schedules to meet imposed by their employers. I'm not surprised that some of them cut a few corners in order to meet their bosses' demands.

my local courier driver just dumps the package at the front door, even with the wooden door open & 2 cars in the driveway, tv on etc etc... luckily we live regionally cause if this happened in town it wouldn't be there any longer!

That's the UK posties for you!! I've had the same thing happen to me. Nearly happened to me again this morning actually! All you can do is complain but it'll be your word against theirs unfortunately.

That doesn't just happen in the UK, they are lazy everywhere lol. I live in New Zealand and have had couriers leave such a note in the letterbox without walking to my door (The house I live in is behind another and down a long path). I am home during the day so I know they don't make an effort to knock on the door. Lazy fuckers >.>

It's usually the state-owned postal service that are the worst. Here in Canada, it's Canada Post, no wonder they are losing to companies like FedEx or UPS. Sometimes I hope they get privatized.
