UKMail collect from depot before delivery attempt

11
Found 22nd Apr 2016
I have a parcel scheduled to be delivered this coming Monday by UKMail but it will reach the depot tomorrow morning.

does anyone know why couriers don't allow collection from depot until they try and fail? it's really frustrating knowing my parcel is ten minutes away but I can't get it until Monday because they need to try and deliver first...

I'm going to chance it tomorrow and call UKMail but was just wondering what the reason is?

I have to disagree. I would imagine most people prefer the convenience of delivery and for many the depot can be very far!
If it's just 10mins away go in an ask.

Can't see them letting you have it however

​it took her a while to find it. she said maybe the parcel load is still to be unwrapped as only arrived early hours of the morning. but I made sure I expressed my gratitude. perseverance yay!
