I try not to have much that has to be delivered workwise cos if we all do it all our small local dealers will go down the pan, as they say "use em or lose em"

I ordered some wall straps, cavity closures, rafter ties, and ridge ties off a company a few months ago for my garage build. I knew i wouldnt be in cos i work long shifts throughout the day/week so stipulated “please leave in new building at rear”
Got an email at 10:30am off the delivery company saying “your goods have been delivered to your address and are in your designated safe place”
There was a picture of the front of my house showing the house number. I thought real do, i can crack on when i get home.
Gets home at 18:00 hrs and theres two average sized cardboard boxes, one long cardboard box and a bright silver glistening block of 15 1.5m galvanised wall straps all slap bang in the middle of the driveway for all to see!!!
The picture of the house conveniently didnt show the side of the house or driveway! That could quite easily have cost me just shy of £400!!! I rang the delivery company to complain and sent pictures to their email complaints department but never got any replies! Shan’t be using them again...... simples!!!
