    Has anyone had their Amazon parcel this week come late?

    I order a item 03/12/2010

    Got dispatched on the 05/12/2010

    Was suppose to come on the 08/12/2010

    It is the 10/12/2010 today.

    I am asking as its Amazon and they never seem to be late on delivery, so far every order has been on time.

    It is suppose to come by Royal Mail, it got last tracked on the 06/12/2010.

    Kinda getting worried now as I need this parcel my Monday.

    Was wondering has anyone else had this problem

    Thanks.

    royal mail have a huge backlog of parcels - it will be them

    It's christmas, we've had bad weather, and your parcel is late?

    Wow.

    Give it a few more days.

    wow thats really shocking news wouldnt be anything to do with the poor weather we had with airports closed would it ?? if planes cant leave post will always get delayed:p

    yep 2 weeks!

    Been walking to the village for a week now to collect mail as roads are still impassable.

    Stuff from Amazon has been arriving very promptly though, both from the Greenock depot and from Amazon.de.

    Be patient, it'll come.

    Still waiting for something dispatched on the 2nd so not just you!

    Saying that I got the parcel i ordered from Amazon.com!

    am waiting for a dvd ....still not come but been despatched

    i'm still waitimg for one that was sent out on 28th november, all my other orders after that have arrived, i contacted amazon and they said to wait until 13th before they can do anything

    I'm still waiting for a couple posted then as well (3rd).

    As long as they come in time for Christmas i'll be happy.

    The Postage system is like a black hole at the minute with parcels entering and being devoured under the massive backlog.

    I've only had one mail delivery in the last 2 weeks, and it arrived in a shocking state. Padded jiffy bad torn open, contents hanging out, bashed to hell and soaken wet. Yet the ****** postman just stuck it through the letter box as if everything was tikkity boo. Damn cheek! I'll be complaining for sure.

    Most couriers have a massive backlog due to the bad weather - you just need to be patient, everyones int he same boat.

    Yep, they should do and they usually have a 'sorry we **** up your parcel' message too.

    Makes you mad and want to get out onto the high street hu?

    My eldest had a whole sack-full delivered this morning around 20 parcels; from different retailers and maybe a week apart in ordering.
    Postie gave me the sack-full and said I could keep bag; I said no to give me the chance of quickly checking everything. Some items had been posted "signed for" but he just took the bag and scarpered.

    ordered 2nd .....still not arrived !

    I'll be claiming my postage back from ebuyer, or cancelling the entire order.

    It's one thing having problems due to the weather, but another to take payment for a specific delivery date that they knew full well they had no chance of keeping too.

    (City link website suggests 3 day backlog, despite ordering wednesday, ebuyer didn't dispatch until thursday for friday delivery as normal)

    ordered on the 2nd with prime. still floating around glasgow somewhere.

    Who did you order from? If it was Play, this may have been how it was dispatched Speaking of Play, I had something dispatched from them on the 29th and it's still not arrived 11 days later.

    You could always claim it didn't arrive

    ordered two parcels on the 3th were supposed to be here on the 6th no sign of either of them

    Yep. Ordered a load of stuff from Amazon on the 4th Dec. All estimated delivery 8th. As of 10th the tracking details still show it all in Yorkshire (I'm on the South coast). It's going to be a long haul!

    No it is not coming from another warehouse,they said it had left THAT warehouse

    Would have been nice. In fact let's check...... Ah yes here we go, straight from their website:

    "Sometimes packaging is of poor quality or the wrong size. If we spot a damaged item we will place it in a Royal Mail bag to try and prevent further damage."
    http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/jump3?catId=400144&mediaId=15500193

    Seems like they didn't bother their ****. However all things said, a ring at the doorbell and hand over in person would be the least I would have expected. It could quite easily have been an Xmas present for someone else in the house!! Bottom line - not good enough.

    Seriously? I had already swapped all the letters for * except the first and the last (f asterix asterix asterix asterix d). For a mod to reedit this seems over the top IMHO. Whatever, I'll know in future.

    I ordered two dvds which were supposed to come on the 8th but They havent yet, I emailed them they said wait until the 14th of December and if it still hasn't come then contact them

    I posted something on the 7th (for the classifieds here) and as of today it hasn't turned up at its destination! This is beginning to get annoying now!

    Amazon's main Despatch Depot is in Scotland. All items are being re-routed to Wolverhampton.

    City Link Sheffield are approx 3 days behind due to the depot being shut for 3 days and roads being very poor at end points.

    Here a useful list of other delays:

    city-link.co.uk/sta…pdf

    Okay it is the 15th today, ordered on the 2nd and still nothing. I was told by Amazon to wait until 15th and if I still didn't recieve anything to contact them. Have any of you been lucky?
    Edited by: "PraxxtorCruel" 15th Dec 2010

    still no sign of mine which was sent out on the 28th novemebr, they have now sent a replacement

    Quite impressed with Dabs. Ordered Sunday, Shipped Monday, arrived Tuesday
    I'm waiting for Zavvi and Amazon deliveries, as are several people I know.

    The item I ordered from Amazon on the 3rd just arrived today.

    Just waiting for two things from Play but luckily they aren't technically for Christmas.
