    My SSD is being delivered by YODEL, Oh God Help Me!

    Ugh, just a bit worried now as I have heard some horror stories about their service. Didn't know eBuyer used them otherwise I would have thought twice! Any stories of yodel you guys are willing to share?

    My wife ordered some Xmas presents and they were delivered by Yodel...when I say delivered I actually mean thrown over our side gate to lie there in the rain until she got home!

    One book had minor water damage and a CD case was cracked but as that was for me she wasn't bothered...

    Yodel - Home Delivery Network = Bunch of Idiots.

    1. £400-worth of electrical bits and bobs from Amazon left in my greenhouse with no note through the door.

    2. Parcel left on driveway wedged under the front of my car.

    3. Parcel just left on doorstep in full view.

    4. Parcel left in Red Recycling Box - fortunately not on the day the refuse collectors were due.

    M U P P E T S ! ! !

    we had a parcel thrown over the side door too. unfortunately the idiot throwing it couldn't see above the 8ft brick wall surrounding the door to realise it wasn't just a wall but backed on to the roof of the outhouse. it was only when they left a note saying "over back wall" we realised. so yeah thanks yodel, i didnt mind climbing on to a roof to get a package because you're too dense to realise you can't see through walls and know what is beyond them

    Yeah we had a parcel left in recycling bin with no note. Got a surprise when I emptied the bins at night.

    Xmas '12 I ordered a bunch of presents to school. They didn't turn up. Yodel insisted that that had delivered and left a card. After complaining they then said that they had left it with one of the residents down the road and left a card. They hadn't. After complaining again they said that they had been signed for at school but couldn't read the signature. Lies.
    After a lot of wrangling, they were delivered on the last day of term. Driver said that the tracking showed they had been sitting around at the depot the whole time.

    Well at least it is solid state! No moving parts to bash together...

    It's an SSD! You'll be fine. No mechanical moving parts, after all

    When I ordered a fancier mouse and keyboard for my workstation - I spend enough time sat here, dammit, I deserve nice things too - it ended up being delivered by Yodel. Every day of that half-term I sat refreshing the tracking, waiting for my toys, only to get "Gate locked, will retry" every day. Complained and complained and had arguments with them about CCTV and eventually got the admission that they'd left the box sitting in the depot because they'd seen the school address and assumed no-one would be about in half-term.

    EDIT:

    They're going to think you're challenging them.

    Weirdest courier experience I have had is when I was fiddling about out the front of the house when a beat up old Transit screeched into the drive at 45 degrees, the driver hurled a parcel out the window, floored it, screeching off again, narrowly missing a car, mounting the path and escaping through my neighbour's garden!

    Stood there open mouthed, then wondered if he had just thrown a bomb at me.
