As has become standard it seems now I am no longer a student and home during the day the courier came by when I wasn't home and despite the fact the box was labelled 'Accept with Signature" dropped it off by the side of the house for me to find when I got home, in line of sight for anyone on the road.
Is this standard practise for couriers to ignore signature requirements? Its has happened for all 3-4 major deliveries I have had here, like this one $200+ (there was a motherboard as well). I live in Hawera so I guess the nearest dispatch point is an hour away so it works out well for me as long as no-one decides to help themselves to free computer parts.
Has anyone had something nicked from this? I assume the courier is then liable as they should not have left it, what is it like trying to prove the parcel was delivered, the value of the goods etc?
I am not overly pissed about this, just worried and curious. In this case the company was Fastway, but I have had it with others as well. Thoughts?
