! Unattended shipments
Most couriers will not take shipments if there is nobody at the location of collection to hand the consignments over in person. This is to prevent erroneous collection and shipment of goods. Customer contact
If something happens along the way that causes delay hence later collection time – traffic jam, vehicle breakdown, other unforeseeable issues – you might be surprised to learn that the courier has actually no way of contacting the customer.
The big reason behind this is that couriers are not supposed to make phone calls while driving.
Courier networks are working on solutions to fix this problem, for example: pre-notifications that will inform you if the courier is near the collection point.
If you have any doubts concerning the collection moment of your goods, please let us know
