On sunday i ordered a laptop online. Because my old laptop broke and i go traveling for 3 months on Thursday i paid extra for "within 2 working days delivery"
So nervously i kept refreshing the DHL status page in hope for good news, and it started promising.
On monday the following status was added:
Departed Depot 10/01/11 16:46 HATFIELD TERMINAL
Arrived At Depot 10/01/11 16:43 HATFIELD TERMINAL
Parcel data received awaiting coll. 10/01/11 NORTHAMPTON SERVICE CENTRE .
So far so good, at least the ball is roling.
To my surprise the same night i got another update:
Arrived At Depot 10/01/11 23:44 MANCHESTER TERMINAL
Brilliant i thought, they are working overnight!
This morning at 09:54 it arrived at Aberdeen service center. Since i live in Aberdeen, i was pretty happy/ exciting. I paid the extra money and by the looks of it it will pay off. Plenty of time to deliver i thought.
Arrived At Depot 11/01/11 09:54 ABERDEEN SERVICE CENTRE
But no, nothing. I waited and waited but no further status update or delivery. I stayed home all day, but nothing.
To my surprise, another update just came online:
In Transit 11/01/11 ABERDEEN SERVICE CENTRE
Without a time added. What does this mean? Surely it is to late for a delivery, and since i live in Aberdeen city center, where can it be going?
Does anyone knows what "in transit" means? And can i expect my laptop before thursday (i.e tomorrow) ?
I have no experience whatsoever with DHL.
