UPS and other non-delivery services...
« on: April 03, 2017, 04:53:55 PM »
This isn't really about TV's book and I feel abused so rant goes here...

14th March - Ordered TV's book and vinyl. Of course I did.
19th March - Suppliers confirmed order on the way.
21st March - UPS say they attempted delivery when what they mean is that they posted a card through my door and drove away in the 20 seconds it took me to see them out of the upstairs window and walk down the stairs. Card says I have to go to Barking Depo. and pick it up. No way.
21st March - Contacted UPS to request 2nd delivery attempt.
27th March - Advised by tracking that it was still at the Depo. and when was I going to pick it up.
27th March - Phoned UPS 'Customer Services' to point out I'd requested a re-delivery 5 days earlier and when were they coming to deliver it. They said they'd get it sorted and apologies for the delay.
30th March - Phoned again and was told deliver 'today (Thursday 30th) or tomorrow (Friday 31st) latest. And apologies for the delay.
31st March - Advised by tracking that it was still at the Depo. and when was I going to pick it up.
31st March - Phoned again and told re-delivery instructions had been sent to the Depo. and apologies for the delay.
3rd April - Another card through the door saying I wasn't in. I was. I've been nowhere. And there's three of us here and we've all been up since 7am so if they did try to deliver it must have been in the middle of the night..
3rd April - Phoned again at mid-day and was told delivery today absolute latest and they'd phone me within 2 hours to confirm when the van was on it's way. And apologies for the delay.
3rd April - It's now 5pm. No package...no phone call. And tracking information has been updated to say....it's still at the Depo. and when am I going to pick it up.....

Just around the corner and miles away...

I honestly feel for you Ken.

Mind you, having had it hand delivered by TVS, I now have the vinyl - but no record player.

D'oh!

When it does finally arrive (still no sign or phone call as I type this) I'm sure I could 'arrange' for you to get mp3 or a CD as I do have a record player with the capability.  ;)

Ah...the old 'Deliver shit phonetically' trick.

I remember when our good old racist, chain-smoking, misery-guts Royal Mail postie used to supply a similar disservice... only far cheaper.
