BT Openreach and the Post Office

BT Openreach and the Post Office are now using the same failed delivery card to save money.

Sorry you were allegedly unavailable to receive delivery of your parcel / Fibre Broadband.
We have left / installed your parcel / Fibre Broadband at your neighbour's house number [  ].
You can collect it from / connect to it there.
This policy has been put in place to minimise delays in the delivery / installation of your order.

Re: BT Openreach and the Post Office

I've not had any dealings with BT Openreach but I have with the post office.  I have always found them accommodating when delivering packages to me if I am not in.  A note on my front door for the postman to see and generally the package is left where I had requested it.

And also lets "undesirables" know you are not at home..... presumably, you have a " secret location", that only you and the postie knows.... or do you put the (non) secret  location on your note as well  Roll eyes
