We haven't had one of these in a while so I figured why not make one?
Thread for horror stories, and general ranting on about packages and shipping.

That said, anyone else from the EU that feels like they've been hit more with custom fees as of late?

my mail man left my package outside my door right next to a corner with a huge spider web

like, what the fuck is your problem dude

I got hit with a 24 euro customs fee for a package worth 27 euro. That 17,50 "handling fee" is a fucking joke. I had to fill the customs declaration myself, so the only work they did was put the number in a calculator and print the bill. It also makes it pointless to pay for faster shipping, because it got held up in customs for 3 days.

Anonymous 2016-06-12 17:47:52 No.9050745
That has to be one of the most annoying things, faster shipping options always get custom fees and end up being held anyway.

It's pointless!

How the fuck do you get it stuck on a roof? Hell no. Id call the post office/delivery company the and ask to speak to the piece of garbage that threw the package up there. Delivering packages isnt hard. Its thankless but so are a lot of jobs. Fuck dude id freak out if that happened to me. Like tell the persons manager they should be fired for that. Ive had packages shoved in my tiny mailbox. Gotten super late notes because the post office thinks its ok to write out a note about packages not being delivered cause the mailbox is tiny (apartment mail slot that cant even fit a magazine and 3 letters) thats back dated because they are that lazy. They literally have given me another note for more packages when i went to the post office to get other packages that werent delivered

It's been awhile since I ordered from Arda but I received no email about it being shipped out and it's been a week now. Are they typically this slow around this time of year?

Anonymous 2016-06-12 18:36:18 No.9050819
I bought from them last month and it took that long for me as well. It's nothing to worry about, I got my package a week after that.

Anonymous 2016-06-12 18:50:19 No.9050841
Log into your account and look at the status. Unless Arda's site/FB specifically says they're experiencing high volume and delays, it's weird that it's been more than 3 days. If none of the above apply and the site still says it's processing, try emailing them; they're pretty quick to respond.

The town I live in has some new drivers and the one who replaced my old mailman is awful. He tries to get the route done as quickly as possible so I'll usually get my mail around 11am instead of 2-3pm. This is if he actually puts anything in the box because he has a tendency to give my neighbor my mail OR if I have a package coming in he'll just leave a pink slip. He doesn't even care if I'm at the house unless I'm physically standing outside while he's delivering mail, and then he acts sweet as pie and gives me my shit.

This happened last week with an earth music & ecology shirt I bought on Ebay. Seller was Japanese so it had to be a signed delivery.
>neighbor knocks on door, "anon I have your mail"
>"I also have our other neighbor's mail too, he really mixed it up today"
>spend a few minutes complaining about my packages not being delivered
>leave for work assuming there's no mail in the mailbox, come home to find a pink slip tacked to the refrigerator
>notice he doesn't stop while delivering mail the day after, drive down to post office to find my package there because they didn't even bother putting it back in their truck

speaking as a paper carrier
>always ends up on the front porch of a neighbor
pls check to make sure your house number is extremely visible, like check at various times of the day, to make sure it's completely visible

>constantly getting slips/etc
also, don't have your driveway full of cars or garbage, especially if you want to not be left a slip in your mailbox, just because it is more convenient then trying to walk up to your house

Anonymous 2016-06-12 21:31:24 No.9051052
That first one I have to agree with. We got a new mail carrier and they would put the mail in wrong people's mailboxes. Granted most people on our street have hard to read or no house numbers visible (us included).
After the 2nd day of this, we got some big stick on mailbox numbers and put them on the mailbox. Made sure to stick them both on the side of the mailbox that the mail carrier walks up from, and on the door of the mailbox that they have to look at when opening it so there's no way to not see the number. They put the right mail in the boxes the next day.

There's no such thing as house numbers in my region; house names only. I use to live at an address that had a really common house name. My parcels would continuously be delivered to a household that shared the same name as mine, and was occupied by a 90+ year old woman. Said house was over 10 miles from my home. Ended up having to buy the poor lady flowers in an attempt to apologise for the fact that she kept receiving all my burando. She received lots of flowers. It worked both ways though, because on the odd occasion I would receive her electricity bills, and knitting magazines.

Hermes and Yodel can both suck dicks. I'm not even exaggerating when I say every parcel i've had through them has run into problems. I've paid double postage if it means going through someone else (FEDEX bloke around here is lovely). Hermes CS are rude as shit too.

Anonymous 2016-06-13 01:06:51 No.9051273
The only time I've had a problem with Hermes was when I used to work shifts and the guy had to come around 5 times (pretty sure he didn't have to come round more than 3) before I got my stuff. He was super nice about it and understood that shifts suck dick.

I am well aware that this is not the norm and that Hermes is as shitty as an overflowing sewer, but every time I read stories like this I'm that much more grateful that I've managed to avoid them since.

Luckily were on good enough terms to just exchange our stuff when it happens, but I swear that guy just does it out of spite at this point, or he feels like I'm condescending to him with the huge address sign and is salty about it.
Also, not sure if this counts, but the last mailman broke a big ass flowerpot with his fat ass trying to deliver mail. It wasn't even in his way. I have no idea why he broke it. It must be that orbit thing fat people have

Everything has been fine for over a year now aside from a package being misplaced and the now infamous mailbox incident.

Thank god she packed it well and it somehow didn't get wet. At least not noticeably.

>He drives up, ignores me, and drives away after quickly leaving something in mailbox
>Slip saying "failed delivery; no one home to sign"

I kept mailing proof to the head of our branch of damaged goods, always ones received from outside US (inside US never had a problem). I started having stuff shipped to another address to be safer. Eventually hear back that they "took care of the problem" and we have a different carrier.

>B is away at college
>sure why not
>let my family know about it

>mfw I can't make it
>contact friends for their tracking info, said I'll call and ask for redelivery on Monday
>feels like shit but hopeful
>come monday, calls
>"Sorry they packages have been returned to the sender already."

The only thing I could do at that point was apologize profusely to A and B and ask them to email the company and ask them to redeliver it at my expense. I honestly hope it works out, I'm super stressed something will go wrong and feel like crap.

Currently waiting for USPS to locate my wig they lost on May 23. I ordered from WigIsFashion, the wig arrived from China, went through customs, went to USPS in Long Island and then disappeared. :( I'm starting to get really stressed as the con I need it for is in a few weeks. I haven't gotten an update since last week (which was basically "we're looking!") so I think I'll call again tomorrow. I'm hoping I won't be totally screwed, be out the $70 the wig + shipping cost, and have to settle for a shitty wig off Amazon or something. Ugh.

Yeah, during the whole fiasco some people gave her the benefit of the doubt saying maybe she just threw the package off to the side and never checked that it had someone else's name on it. But given how it was returned...

Hermes quality highly depends on the delivery guys, and since I know mine I'll never order with them again.

One story:
>Order bath towels, shipping with hermes for the first time in new town
>get home, find slip in mailbox
>"attempted delivery, please call *telephone number* for your package"
>??? wha??
>call them live 5 times, only picks up at 8 pm
>"Oh yeah, could you like, pikc it up at my house? I don't live that far away. I won't be home till 7 pm, though, I mean, I have to work."
I legit hat to pick my package up at the delivery guys house. Twice. Since then I don't use hermes

Another story of my in-law's neighbor:
>neighbor buy something with cash-on-delivery
>stupid delivery guy who never really delivers things rings
>she pays, but needs to get a few cents from the kitchen, asks to get the package to check is while she gets the rest of the money
>delivery guy refuses to hand package, takes it off her arms
>she tries to get it back
>he pushes her so she falls on the flooor, taking the package with him, leaves money on the floor
I think she filed a complain with Hermes.

Ordered a sword for a sephiroth cosplay.

Arrived from china and the wood had cracked down the scabbard.

Guy was a bro though and agreed to refund postage rather than sending a new one (because it wouldn't arrive before expo and he had bubble wrapped the shit out of it so was parcelforce fault)
