Had a parcel (item ordered via Amazon) delivered by Evri today. The driver made no attempt to ring the doorbell (I was in and waiting for said parcel) but just dropped it on the doormat and departed. I didn't even recieve a delivery text or email.
Is this par for the course with Evri? I've not had a delivery from them previously. All the other delivery companies at least ring the bell or drop a text before they dash off. It's not a big issue for us- we live in one of those villages where you can generally safely leave the door unlocked- but I can imagine parcels going missing must be legion in some areas.

Makes sense. I knew parcel was en route via their tracking system. Probably a local driver. Just a little concerned as to whether it is general practise with Evri (where we used to live said parcel would have been very swiftly 'appropriated')
The postcode would only take him to the street. it would not indicate that the two sides had different addresses and postcodes.
My last postcode used to tell you you were at your destination 9 miles before my house- the postcode covered 26 miles.
We regularly got phone calls asking where we were.
The courier would see a house at number 4 and deliver to it. He would not look around at other houses to see if there was another number 4..
They get a pittance for each delivery so are not going to waste time looking around addresses when it appears he has found it.
People malign these cheap couriers but use them, demand cheaper postage and shun pricier alternatives.
The irony is its a race to the bottom as carriers are forced to match them to compete.
Royal Mails entire direction right now is towards the Evri model.
