Yodel aren't a real delivery company. They operate a "deliver when we feel like it, and in what ever condition" policy. Hermes are just as bad, they leave my girlfriends deliveries out in the wheely bin.

It all comes down to job satisfaction and wages, or lack of... The woman using her own car and being paid 60p per drop was probably out of pocket... no fuel allowance, plus yodel save on costs such as tax and insurance, wear and tear, etc... I used to drive for DHL using my own car and although I never resorted to throwing stuff over the fence, I can see why, when you've made 3 attempts (unpaid) to deliver, you might be tempted, just so you can get paid.

I'd bet that her insurance didn't cover for commercial work such as deliveries. :-(

 

I do wish people would stop referring to these next-day parcel companies as "couriers". It lends an air of credibility which they do not deserve.

The Job Description is courier whether you drive a 7.5 tonne box, Sprinter, Transit, or car. Some companies do try harder, for example the text message or e'mail DPD sends also says that your parcel will be delivered by your Courier, XXX between say 10:01 and 11:01, they will only fail a delivery under extreme circumstances, When I buy IT gear, I buy from firms that use DPD.

 

As I do some regular part time work for a delivery company, in a Sprinter not a car (NOT FOR YODEL ) I feel insulted I had best look for a job stacking shelves in Tesco to help pay the bills whilst I wait for customers to pay invoices for Media and web services, or even jack it all in and go on the sick and let the State keep me. Not all delivery companies are as bad as Yodel.

I've had many parcels delivered by Yodel and never have they been late or given any other problems. Guess it might have something to do with where you live, everyone is happy in the Westcountry :)

It depends on the depot, I have seen Yodel drivers lobbing parcels into a field as he didn't want to drive up the track to the farmhouse, in Mid Wales however he was Agency, agency drivers are as a rule the ones who will cut corners, and there are many good Yodel drivers out there, and the issues are usually at Peak around Christmas when they have to use agency staff. Anyway as I have taken Mr.P's comment regarding the status of couriers personally, I need a stiff drink.

Please accept my apologies. It wasn't my intention to insult you or anyone else.

 

I have worked as a motorcycle courier, and am well aware of the pressures the job entails. It is hard work for little profit and the very real risk of serious injury (or worse).

Thanks and regards, Motorcycle Courier is no doddle, especially in winter, but actually the main issue with Yodel is the Agency drivers, as many don't understand what multi-drop is, so never get into the swing of 100 plus drops a day.

It is very hard … when I worked as a self employed courier, it was impossible to break even, let alone make a profit… which is why I gave up. I actually enjoyed the job.

It is difficult, in the rush to the bottom the worker suffers rates per parce seem to have stagnated over the last 10 years. Incidentally Amazon Logistics seem to be expanding, as they are doing more of their own deliveries, but again difficult to make money without doing 13 hours a day in a Transit Connect or Custom.

I have to be honest and say, I have a lot of parcels delivered by Yodel and find them OK. Only once did I ever have a problem where the package was damaged and left in the rain.

 

I receive an email when they have control of the parcel and I can then track it until it is delivered to me. The last few packages have had to be signed for.

 

The company seems to have regular drivers as it is the same guy that delivers to me. Although I guess it could be just this particular unit that has the regular guys.

Impossible not to make mistakes under those circumstances… people should stop blaming the couriers and think of the pressures they are under in order to provide a cheap service. TB

I order a lot online & overall I'm very happy as the Courier keeps me informed via tracking & email/texts. Although I've had a few recent(ish) incidents.

 

Yodel, threw my orders into a not quite a neighbours garden, laid in wet grass overnight (only found out when they came knocking).

 

Unknown, delivered a daybed/trundle recently & trundle box looked like it gone 3 rounds with a hard object. (bent & missing bits, a bit of a nightmare trying to get sorted).

 

Personally I feel Couriers do a good job, esp like my DPD courier who always has a very large round (I was no 90 the other day) that's some deliveries to get done in a day!!


I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!

DPD lets you track the courier drop by drop online and gives you a one hour delivery window, Yodel, and Amazon Logistics just tell you it is out for delivery, so you have to wait in all day.
