I watch my mailman do it once. He said sorry it'll be at the post office tomorrow and drove off. I was out of word.

Better than the no sig required ones tho. They put the box down and then put the welcome mat on top. Now no one can see it...........

I guess it depends on the location on where you live... my mailman/men are pretty consistent...

Also for you guys that haven't received your packages in a month...what the hell are you guys ordering?! Sometimes things get stuck at customs for further inspection...also if you're ordering something from like..China..don't expect it to arrive in a week lol

Now I have to drive 15 minutes to pick it up... FML.
I remember seeing a thing on their website a while back about this, there's a reason why they do it but I can't remember what it is. Maybe something to do with capacity of the trucks?

I'm guessing either the closer stops or the trucks going to the closer stops might've been full. There is a limit to how much mail they can hold you know.

[rant mode on]

it's a no win situation for me.

i ordered something from a mail order business in richmond that was supposed to be canada post express mail (1-2 days delivery) to me last tuesday. it's now monday and i still haven't received it. tracking shows a "clerical error expect delays" and not much else. i called the seller and they told me that i was not alone and canada post has messed up their orders since the last half of june. seller filed a claim but could not allow me come and pick up a replacement in person because they are not set up for walk in customers, but they would be happy to send it out again canada post... damn.

and what about private?

i used UPS ground to ship two identical packages together from florida to me. first it arrives 4 days late because the shipment was misdirected. and then i was billed twice for brokerage because the ups store the shipment originated from made the paperwork out as two separate shipments instead of one combined single shipment.

after a week of hassle (did i mention they only accept paperwork via fax or mail, no email? and their fax number is not toll free), they finally changed it one shipment and released my stuff from holding, but not before charging me another $15 admin fee for correcting the paperwork. i ask them why i have to pay for their mistakes, and the phone operator said it's not ups' fault that the ups store made the error, and because ups stores are franchises ups is not responsible for their mistakes. whatever. i was tired, and i needed my stuff so i let them bill me over the phone on my credit card, and i thought it was over.

fast forward one month, and i get two separate invoices from UPS in the mail 2 days apart. their collections department were claiming non-payment for the original 2 brokerage payments that were incorrect.

unbelievable.

so today i argued for 40 minutes this morning with them over the phone until they said they were going to cancel the collections notices. i asked to speak to a manager to give them a piece of my mind but they would only take my number and someone would call me back (doubt it).

Perhaps, your usual postie is on vacation. I have noticed that the person covering will often just leave the slip and dump all the parcels at the post office. I have all my parcels delivered to my work address, and noticed this a few times when the postie is different from the usual guy.

Use anybody but UPS at all costs. You may pay less up front with UPS but you will always pay more in the end.

UPS is the worst. I ordered two identical Nexus 5 phones from Google on launch day, same order slip, same color, same GB, etc... both were shipped from Kentucky to Vancouver. I got one in 5 days (not bad) but the other one took 2 weeks to get here even though the tracking info says both were shipped on the same day. Makes zero fucking sense.

Something I noticed the difference with UPS deliveries vs others. UPS, it is always the same driver on the same route. They often spend the effort knowing your name etc.

Fedex, DHL etc are all random and they don't care much.

For me that is a huge difference, eg the UPS driver, after a few times, knows when I am most likely be home and try to deliver around that time. That happen at Coal Harbor and Coquitlam.

Yes UPS has its horrible bits like the surcharge for clearance, however there are so many well documented ways to get around that. Not to mention it is not the delivery guys fault you want to be cheap.

Back to topic, Canada post is offering $500 gc to be on some kind of panel.

I still have my delivery notice card from May 2nd that was left on my door with no attempts of door knocks or bells. What i find really fascinating is that the postal office cannot track down the parcel... opened a complaint file and they just told me to keep checking the postal office...
