Hold tight mate. Just received my boots from him. Think there’s serious delays on the German side.

Main issue at the moment is not being able to print out labels. Do any of the services on p2g provide labels?

Had a delivery from Parcelforce the other week and it was signed for service but delivered to a block of flats a few doors down, completely different street number, no signature seemingly. My RM postie spotted this and rang our buzzer, and helped me carry the parcels (10kg each) Cool . CSB etc.

Got another order and it's Parcelforce, nervous now after hearing all this

Parcel Force Express 24/48 works without the need to print a label.

Used em yesterday, two parcels collected, both delivered today Cool

'Attempted delivery', no buzzer, no van, no card. But at least an email saying it was missed. Twats.

DPD probably now the best in the UK
100%

no idea if it’s still the case, but ~10 years ago they were one of the last couriers to pay drivers quite well, per parcel delivered

Yodel seem to give 3 day delivery period from when they give the parcels to the drivers.

UPS 24hr service working for me too.
DHL seems to be running ok. Got a scheduled delivery today from yesterday’s supreme drop.

But I’m waiting on work documents sent via Royal Mail for over a week. Evil

Takes the piss we expect these services and workforce to continue as normal whilst we all sit on our asses doing fuck all with our free gov wages.

Royal Mail requiring way more info on their new CN22 Customs labels, guess they're going to start following up when you start ticking gift on the item.

All seem to be working fine to me. I'ved had UPS, Parcelforce, RM , DHL and DPD recently. DPD has been taking a picture of the parcel on the floor and not asking for signature. The other's haven't either to be fair but seem to be less inclined to prove it was delivered.

Mind you I am at the door every time it is delivered so they have no choice! Laughing out loud
