So does anyone else use youshop and have a parcelpod?

 

If so do your packages etc always get mis-sorted to random places around the city?

 

My parcelpod is based in Albany

 

Have 3 youshop deliveries coming in, yesterday 1 ended up in Epsom, then newmarket and is now back at East Tamaki.  Today another one has been sorted to papakura (and currently sitting there).

 

About 3 months ago I had one go to Vic Park in the CBD and left to be picked up from there.

 

This adds 1 - 3 extra days as NZpost can't seem to sort their own parcelpod mailing address correctly.

 

 

 

Am I the only 1 ?

No, you are not. :D

 

 

My story, I live 2 Smith Street and sometimes delivery goes to 2 Smith Cresent, and vise versa, the address is like 100m away from my address, so we exchanged the phone numbers with the owner and when we got wrong delivery we send txt to each and I go and pick it up. ;) works for us like 10 years now. And its not just NZ Post, all NZ companies.

We have the problem with Victoria Street, Wellington vs Victoria Street, Petone.

 

Also Fitzherbert Street Petone vs Fitzherbert Street Alicetown which is really bad because they are neighboring suburbs. 1.43 km apart.

Clearly NZ Post haven't left behind their core government department values since they became an SOE 30 years ago.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Not consistently and without reflection. If they did they'd cease to exist as their customers, their sole income stream, would leave.

Aw, I dunno.  Places like Vodafone, Jetstar seem to frequently get things wrong and they manage to survive.
