    I feel your pain! My last order was late, because of Royal Mail not LH of course-very frustrating.

    My most recent order was sent by a courier company . This arrived a day too soon which was frustrating really as no one was in on this day .

    So it appears LH do occasionally use a courier company as wel as RM. Perhaps if this was made a customer choice then things could be better.

    You could always choose the RM signed for option, which generally gives you a day; it is paid for.

    They use a courier company when the items are larger/heavier.

    It's not only RM though other courier companies also have things like this happen, I was once waiting for a parcel from Asia, when I checked the tracking it was in France, later it was in London, when I checked it the next day it was back in France!

    Never had a problem as state in delivery instructions if not in, to leave "through side gate under box". They put note through door too. And put under box I've left. Always works, so no delays. Three cheers Royal Mail and Love Honey. :-)

    Does anyone else get those stupid "Sorry, we missed you" notes when you were in the house all along? And then you have to wait 24 hours before you can go collect it from the mail office! GRR.

    Our postie is an absolute star. He signs for packages if I'm busy and has several safe places he leaves stuff if we're not in. Once I was at a neighbours and he actually gave me a parcel I'd been waiting for while I was there. Not from LH that time, though! And luckily I've never had a late LH delivery.. I'd never survive the suspense!

    I got an email saying mine had been left in a safe place and I thought to myself, 'where the fuck is my safeplace?" I have never set one and it turns out, the postie had knocked, heard someone coming and left it on the doorstop and went.

    I have to be honest I have never had a problem here. My packages always arrive on time. I don't think I have ever had a late package and I have had many. :S x

    This is normally what happens when the on foot postie can not fit it in his/her bag. They fill out the card with no intention of delivering the parcel.

    I have sort of the same problem with my house. I live opposite a huge block of flats and the delivery people have delivered to the falt with the same number as me a few times, very annoying. But lucky for me RM have never done this :) If your not happy with the service in your area I would definitely complain to get it improved. After all you pay for that service and your item to be delivered to you safely.
