at my local sorting office they dont even ask for id - all they ask is address.

If it has their name and address on apart from number being out they shouldn't have a problem collecting it

went to 53 as ithought it was there non but they are 51

Yep any sorting office I have been to it's been a case of hand over card, they snatch it and rush off to find said item. If it is recorded/signed for they then ask for a signature, if not they hand you said item and you're away. I suspect they have no card as they collected it - if it was valuable it should have been sent with appropriate insurance really, but I'm not sure if sending to the wrong address that would have helped here anyway.

They shouldn't!

If you dont have the card, you need to prove you live at the address.

i know thats exactly what i thought. the first time i went i took ID, and when i was in the que they didnt ask anyone and when i went up and told them i had it, all they said i needed was the address.

Iv been a couple of times since and have never been asked for it and neither have i seen anyone else asked.


Edit:realised my mistake - i had the red card but the Op does not.

The card says bring some ID

just take your bank card - works at my local sorting office.

you don't need the card, you just tell them address it was delivered too, then flash them driving licence or similar and parcel will be theirs.

edit, assuming the neighbour really has lost the card and not been and collected for themselves.

Do you know your postie? If so explain the situation and ask him to re-deliver. Our postie is very good and has done this for us previously - he can obviously 'sign' for item on your behalf and re-deliver.
