    Amazon deliveries. 9th Jan 19 at 4:50 PM
    Want to order an item off Amazon thatís sold by a third party but fulfilled by Amazon. Itís about the size of a small airline carry on case and weighs around 5kg with a value of £325.

    As Iím not going to be at home when they deliver theyíll almost certainly try a neighbor. Thing is I live in a mansion block where thereís a lot of work going on and Iíll concerned that a workman will sign for it and disappear with it. Itís to big and heavy to have it sent to work etc.

    In the past Iíve had a delivery on a Sunday (which would be perfect) after a failed delivery in the week.

    I canít see how to select a Sunday delivery..... any ideas? Is it possible? I do have Prime.
    Thanks.

    Use an Amazon locker, there is likely to be one nearby.

    OP: For a specific delivery you have to select nominated day and it costs more.

    Thanks both.... Amazon Locker isn’t really an option as I don’t want to lug the item home. Interestingly although the cast majoritysaid the item was too big for an AL there was 1 that would have accepted it.

    Couldn’t see how I could select a Sunday. Any emergency over as a friend will come over and house sit on Thursday to accept the delivery.

    It’s interesting that buying online seems to have improved light years but the actual getting the stuff still seems to be in the dark ages.
    Anyway.
