Royal Mail and not bothering to deliver parcels
Any suggestions about this would be appreciated. First I need to explain that I live in an apartment on the 4th floor (84 steps in total). For the last 6months if not more, every package we order from anywhere (ebay, play, Amazon it doesn't matter) we end up with one of those cards saying it couldn't be delivered.
Today there has been yet another stupid card suggesting no one has been in for delivery. A good trick considering that I have not left the apartment other than to check the post box which is in the lobby for 2 days as my partner is ill. Additionally there is a phone in the lobby area that allows them to call up so we can head down to collect whatever it is.
In case you cant guess this is getting annoying as the calling a cards are supposed to be for if no one is home, but sadly the Royal Mail seem to just abuse them as a quick and easy way to not bother delivering items. What makes it even more annoying is that they don't try to even check if we are in as I would be more than happy to head down the stairs and pick whatever it is up, but they just dont even bother and simply fill the card out if I am in or not.
Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions of what best to do?
