I've had a parcel today, it's not my name or phone number on the parcel, the label has been printed and my address has been handwritten on top. I've tried texting the number to see if I can contact the person who's ordered it, but the text refuses to go through. I have no idea what to do.

I've just received confirmation saying Yodel have delivered my parcel to my front porch, but I'm at home right now and didn't see any Yodel delivery here, there's no parcel in my porch which is behind a locked door, no parcel anywhere on my property (I checked the bins too, because Yodel), and no card left to say where it is. I have no immediate neighbours either, just fields all sides.

I've contacted Yodel and they claim to have no way of contacting the delivery driver even though they're likely still in the area, so I have to wait for them to interview the driver at the end of the day.

Joy.

I suppose I'll go for a walk now and see if it's sitting at any of the houses down the road. It's Christmas presents worth £200 FFS.

I once had something similar, was told it was delivered but I got home to find out it hadn't been. The next day, it got flagged as "out for delivery" again, then "delivered to a safe place" hours later and then they just left it outside the house in full view of the street.

Nah, I ended up giving it back to the postman to sort out in the end. Give it a week and it'll probably be back through my door again. No one i know wears bracelets anyway :lol:

Hermes were on Watchdog last night and their drivers don’t get paid until the parcel is delivered so it’s not in their interest to leave a card and arrange re-delivery, I did assume this was the case and when they get paid as little as 45p a parcel I suppose you can’t blame them for leaving parcels where ever they can

I wouldn't even entertain looking for it elsewhere. Report it missing to them....and if it turns up tomorrow, say strawberry float all. The delivery driver would need to take a photo of it in your safe place, but seeing as the door was locked, he clearly couldn't. Actually looks like hes stolen it...or someone else has after he left it outside.

I'd say GAME and Curry's PC World are the best choice for console deliveries in particular because they both use DPD or Royal Mail which have in-depth tracking information.

Not sure if it’s available to everyone but I had a delivery from Amazon Logistics today and I could track it on a map in the iOS app.


I was tracking Amazon Logistics today. At one point he was just around the corner and it said he had one delivery before me. He then drove miles away and it was another 2 hours before he got here. :lol:


Probably strawberry floated off back to the depot ditched the van and went home!
