    Vent, Amazon lockers deliveries.

    Vent, Amazon lockers deliveries. 4th Aug 17 at 4:46 PM
    So yesterday morning I placed an order and paid for delivery to a locker hoping to get it next day as advertised. But the lockers close at 9PM and all they say is that the delivery to the locker will be before 9PM.
    So if they deliver at 8.59 how do I get there before 9.00 to pick it up?
    Been waiting all day and their tracking just says it is on its way!

    Wait by the locker from 20:30 until 21:00.

    In America, many of the Amazon Lockers are outside.

    In the UK, InPost have some of their lockers outside. There is one by a Gulf petrol station 2 miles from me

    Do chat to the Amazon staff on the chat service and you may get the delivery charge credited onto your account.

    Is this a serious question? If so I can really see why some companies ban certain customers.

    Didn't Amazon send you an email to say its arrived in locker along with access code. I used the locker on Wednesday first time for me and it was painless and so easy to use, used one inside Morrisons. You do indeed get a email to say parcel may be delivered until 9pm as I did it, I never had an item delivered at that time usually no later than 6pm and usually well before then

    I've never found an Amazon delivery to arrive just before the cut-off point they always arrive hours before then eg, an all day delivery will probably arrive before or at lunch-time. IME one of the more painless delivery experiences both at home and to Amazon lockers

    The point of using a locker is that you don't have to wait all day. Get on as normal and they'll let you know when your parcel is available.

    Sorry, been awayfor a week which is why I needed the item. Got a text at 19:54 so managed to get to the locker in Morrisons before going away early next day.
    Just always seems that if something is urgent it arrives at the end of the day!
    The tracking was useless, just shows out for delivery all the time!

    Anyone else remember the good old days of mail order when we had to wait for "up to 28 days" for delivery. No last minute, must have it by tomorrow, orders then! :-)

    Glad you got your parcel OP.

    You are annoyed that it showed out for delivery when it was actually out for delivery? If you want specific time slots you need to pay extra to use a service like DPD but most other couriers just show that it is on its way. Maybe you should be more annoyed with yourself for leaving something you needed that badly until the last minute.

    You paid for delivery on a certain date. Your item was delivered on said date.

    Should this be a praise rather than a vent?

    If you don't want to read about "first world" problems then there is an extremely simple answer.
    Don't read forums whose users are in the majority, first world residents dealing with problems in a first world country.

    Why do amazon lockers have opening times.

    Should they not be 24 hr ?
