"Delayed" Parcel Delivery methinks.

How do I come to this conclusion?...

See below...

Three months, worse than the other company 'Day and a Half Late' in the yellow vans.
or 'UPS' which is the sound the driver makes when he/she drops your box.

In their defense
What do you all expect for 5 quid
Would you drive from one end of the country to the other for 5 quid
Some of you may know that I am a same day courier and we charge any thing between £200 and £800 to run from one end of the UK to the other
I am obviously very knowledgeable about the whole industry . Parcel rates are the same as they were 30 years ago !
The industry has let the customer and demand dictate the price and as a result it is the most complained about industry in the country
If every parcel delivery that was book was priced an extra £1 to £2 than they are now there would be very few of these delays misroutes and damage. The industry would have the budget to do things properly

Yeah, but that's management's fault.
I've also sat inside the sorting depot of more than one large courier firm** and watched them throwing the parcels into the back of the truck or throwing them out of it.
To a layman you'd think stacking would take up less room but I gues it's quicker to throw them ?
Hence the damage....

** nature of my job, tools of the trade etc.

Recently had some issues with MyHermes over an item that was delivered damaged.
Photo's supplied by the buyer showed that the box had clearly been walked over, as the box was bent and there were a couple of foot prints on it.

Item was less than £20 so was covered within their standard parcel insurance.

MyHermes guidelines state claims will be dealt with within 14 days, it took them 42 days to sort it out.

Admittedly the first time I've had a major issue having used their service for around 300 parcels.
But I was not at all impressed with their customers services who repeated failed to respond to messages, or on the 2-3 occasions they did respond they came back with the standard response that the claim would be settled within 48 hrs.
As for their online advisers, do not even bother :wall:

FAST FORWARD ... We must be in 2024! :park:

At around 18:15 tonight, there was a knock on the door. it was me DPD Delivery! :D

Fair play to them for delivering when I am in. It should have been here earlier, IF you believe their web guff.

I, for one, for once, am glad that they can't tell the time!...

:D :D

Si,

A question that's completely off topic!

Might you drive a small works white van for RPS & have been looking for a leak near Bradford on Avon today?

I only thought it could/might be you ages after I'd stopped & asked what you (if it was you) were looking for around 14:45hrs today. -- (a Wessex mains leak between 2 meters.)

Best wishes: effsweet :)
