    This is a probably really stupid question () but it is okay if I signed for a parcel that is for my dad? I think the delivery man thought I was his wife... :rofl:

    It should be alright. One time, when my broadband is set up, my dad wasn't here. He just asked me to sign it. Should be the same for you too, but in a different situation (i.e. parcel instead of broadband).

    I think it's ok, as long as its delivered and they had a signature it doesn't matter. I used to work for a big company and I signed for anybodies parcels lol Didn't get me into trouble

    Make sure you check the name and address, as otherwise you could be signing for something that's not meant for your house! But other than that it's OK, as it only says it's got to where it was supposed to go.

    But now you have to give it to him and can't keep it for yourself!

    I am not sure of the legality of signing for someone elses parcel, but everyone does it all the time!

    I think it's ok. I once told the delivery guy that my mum wasn't there, but he said that I could sign for the delivery.

    Yeah, you can sign for parcels I think as long as you live there with the person the parcel is for.

    Yeah anybody at the address can sign for something that's been addressed there - but once signed for, liability for the carriage of the item passes from the delivery company to the person signing for the goods. Therefore, once they have a signature, the delivery company is absolved from any responsibility for the item going missing, etc.

    Yeah it's fine. Although yesterday I signed for one for my Mum, and instead of giving me the old pen and paper, he gave me a stylus, and an electronic PDA thing. Only the stylus didn't really work, so I ended up scrawling some crap onto it! Very embarassing!

    Anyone who can write can sign for a parcel. It's just so the Royal Mail can prove it was delivered and received by somebody.
