Some time back I ordered a new EQ for the mastering studio. It was shipped this week and I got the email notification that it was delivered yesterday.

Wonderful except the courier (big international courier) has delivered it to the wrong address and not even the wrong address but the wrong town about 1 hour away from here.

I spoke to the person there on the phone who'll kindly look after it for me so I can retrieve it from there but can't go there for a couple of days as I'm really busy with work.

The courier actually changed the town and post/zip code on the delivery address. (And he spelt the name of the town he delivered to wrong.)

Couriers here really, really annoy me.

A little OT - but as this is such a big international courier I've offered in the past to give them the sat nav location as well as the postal address for delivery. They told me they can't use the sat nav as none of their staff have GPS. So much for a technological 21st C logistic company.

Oh hell, that is outrageous ! It's bad enough that I ordered something that was sent to Gillingham, Kent instead of Gillingham ,Dorset. You would think that the county, DORSET, and the clearly emblazoned post code would prevent that from happening but nein !

However, your story takes the biscuit ! rolleyes.gif

Happens to us a lot - this one wasn't the worst as at least they delivered the package. We've had parcels thrown in a ditch, dumped in the road in the pouring rain and so on. I'm still tryimg to find a reliable international one that we can trust smile.gif .

A friend who runs a computer shop here had one where the courier literally threw a package at him. Another friend in the States had a parcel left in the street in New York because the courier wouldn't deliver up to his flat (1st floor). Package wasn't there when he went to retrieve it.

Sorry to hear that Tony, specially when such equipment is at stake, glad to hear that the receiver was kind enough to watch for it.
