Re: Yodel

In what way ?
I've had both good and bad experiences with their delivery service if that is what you're talking about

Re: Yodel

Yes, a bit of clarity would help, but if you are referring to their delivery service I've always had good service.

Re: Yodel

Of all the delivery firms I received stuff from they are the worst.
It's even worse if that is possible when they subcontract out the delivery to some private individual in their own car.

Re: Yodel

They have no depots up here, so its farmed out to local firms, who never give problems.  For me its DHL, they do have a local depot and are useless.  I had one delivery come at 5.30am when it was booked for the afternoon/evening.  Then trying to get it redelivered took a week.  Plus 2 I had to refuse delivery due to puncture damage to the packaging, some arse had speared them with a fork lift.

Re: Yodel

Yodel down here is good, I have a chat with the delivery lady when she drops stuff off, she generally always comes at around the same time too.
Citylink however, avoid like the plague.  I stopped ordering from Aria (who are really good btw) because their courier was Citylink.  It took them about 5 attempts to deliver my keyboard to me and there was a huge thread on the Aria forums about how much CL suck.  Now Aria have another courier so it's all good.

Re: Yodel

The service from them is variable round here. Same as with DHL.

Re: Yodel

I have found some items delivered by Yodel often seem to be delivered by a chap (or his wife) in a private car. Either he can't be bothered to get the van out or it is locally franchised. Or, he's just one dedicated employee and takes his work home with him, hope he's being paid for it.
I've also noticed that Lakeland (Plastics) quite often deliver this way.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
