If I buy something from you on the classifieds ……..
For me this is the complete opposite. I’d rather have Royal Mail or Parcel Force for anything as I can easily get to them to pick up parcels. I don’t have a car so cannot drive either. I’ve dealings with couriers based in Exeter as well (I’m in Plymouth) so it can be a royal pain in the arse.
When you hand over payment details, etc, have you tried asking for a particular courier or saying not to use Parcel Force. I normally use this point to request RM or PF.Posted 4 years ago

Up until now, no, as they have been good, but recently……..
It now turns out they don’t know where the Inverness parcel is. It’s OK as it’s nothing important, only a bike.Posted 4 years ago
please don’t send it to me by ParcelForce. They used to be great around here and our local delivery driver generally still is but the local depot (Perth) is utterly useless. I live 16 miles from the Perth depot. In the last three weeks they have:
1) mis-sorted one parcel from the Perth depot to the Glasgow depot around 70 miles in the wrong direction
2) left one parcel in the depot and sent the van out. The bloke turned up then realised the parcel wasn’t on the van.
3) mis-sorted one parcel from Perth to Inverness over 100 miles away where they then loaded it on to a van for local delivery. I still don’t have that parcel as it is still in Inverness with the local delivery agent.
4) never turned up at all to collect a booked collection for an item I was sending to an stw buyer.
The mind boggles.
This would be bad enough if I was receiving / sending a large volume of parcels but these are the only 4 dealings I have had with them in the last 3 weeks.Posted 4 years ago
Good news – they have now found it. Bad news – it’s on the way to Fort William. So not really any closer to me, further south yes and on a similar latitude but now 100 miles west of me.
On the plus side, you can build it and go for a ride when you collect it, pretty epic place to go for a ride 😀 Love Fort William.Posted 4 years ago
Quite a nice thot that someone is enjoying the bike 🙂 hopefully it will be me, soon!
Loving the tune there duckman 😉
As I said they are used to be very good and the usual delivery driver is usually spot on as he lives round the conrer as has taken a parcel home for me in the past, I suspect it isn’t him doing the drop today. Our RM postie is ace as well.Posted 4 years agoWhathaveisaidnowMember
i once sent a frame in a bike box via normal post, i was in the high street post office weighing it on the little scales at the till…lol… everyone was astonished . . . they gave me the stamps to cover the postage
after lots of licking i took to the depot and off it went, he received it fine . . .Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
I generally opt for stuff to be delivered to work these days, all of the major outfits seem to get things right more often when there’s a business address involved.
I’ve known them to shove several hundred quids worth of stuff behind the bins when we lived at our old house, I wouldn’t have minded but it wasn’t the best area, it could have been bin collection day for all they knew and the sorting office was less than 5 min’s walk away, I’d rather have had the red card shoved through the door TBH…
I’m pretty sure they don’t even bother getting the parcel out of the van at our current place, more often than not MIL is in looking after the kids doesn’t hear a thing (although she is going a shade deaf) and then finds a red card on the doormat.Posted 4 years ago
Update – it has arrived! It’s been delivered to a neighbour at the second attempt. The local depot agreed to do this if I wasn’t in. Neighbour called me at 11:30 to say PF van heading out of cul-de-sac and she didn’t have any parcel and the door bell hadn’t been rung. I called local depot. Upshot the van came back and delivered to said neighbour. I suspect the Fort William stuff was boll*cks but I now have a bike which is the main thing 🙂Posted 4 years ago
