    About 3 weeks ago i ordered a new laptop of amazon £329 , something new for my revision . It only got delivered to another address, then it came up saying delivered, sent a letter of complaint, practically got called a liar and I'm still waiting for my laptop, apparently my complaint is being reviewed. Lmfao .
    Amazon logistics are the ones who forged my boyfriends signature. Did you try their customer service chat? I gave them hell on there earlier.

    That is just awful. Did you post a complaint on social media? It's useless for Hermes but gets something out of other delivery companies.
    Was ignored on social media as well

    And it was hermes, just the name makes me shiver...

    I recently (as in a few weeks ago, this is still going on now urgh) ordered something off eBay to go to my mum's work address by Royal Mail signed for. A couple of weeks later and it doesn't turn up, I contact the seller for tracking details and find that it had already been delivered and signed for by someone with an R in their name (it was pretty illegible). My mum and her colleagues spoke to the postman and he said that there was a parcel sent on that day to the neighbors - one who is called R. (Last name here). Working at a pharmacy, my mum sees the guy getting his prescription and asks him about it, though he denies it. Luckily, she needs his signature for something and it seems to match the one from the delivery. Now the postman has spoken to the guy about this, showing the signature as proof but the guy still isn't giving it up - idk how or why this is still going on!! I'm so annoyed, it was just a stupid dress so it's so weird how they aren't giving it back.

    I hate amazon sometimes, but then when they used royal mail it was even worse. Just keep complaining and threaten to speak to someone higher about it, they'll give you compensation sooner or later lol.

    Same here, it's usually just the vans that screw everything up.

    Royal Mail is very fine.
    UPS and Fedex are ok, but only if you can be there all day, otherwise you must go to the depot, which is usually in some industrial estate with very limited bus access. The good point is that they are extremely fast

    Hermes must be fled like the plague. Do NOT order anything delivered by them, or even by the three other services listed above.

    True, but you can ask them when they don't tell.

    I ordered a couple of dresses from boohoo and they use Hermes, I'd ordered it Saturday for next day delivery and the guy who brought it was very rude and was loudly complaining we made him deliver on a Sunday. I'm glad we were in or else I have no idea what he would've done with my package :curious::curious:

    every month we order 240kg of meat.

    i live on the top of the hill.

    not only did the courier come at 10pm, he also didn't carry ANYTHING up the hill (like even offer to help ) and i had to carry 240kg up the massive ****ing hill to my house. when i complained, the company said it was because he was behind on his delivery schedule cause he overslept and he will be disciplined accordingly and never be put on my route again. guess who delivered it all next time under the same circumstances
