Maybe then need a satnav.

I think that was the trouble to be honest, the systems they use, which sounds like satnav, at least judging by what they asked me, couldn't locate us.

A courier from Auckland to Wellington should not take over a week. Bought something online from Auckland which was dispatched on 7th February for an "overnight" delivery and it's still not arrived. First excuse from the courier firm last week was that they "couldn't find" my address, but it's off a main street in the 2nd largest suburb of the capital city, not a difficult to find rural area and couriers have never had any trouble before. True it's up a long driveway and you can't see the house from the street but the letterbox at the end of the driveway clearly indicates the address. The latest excuse today is that "it seems there is a new driver from that branch so that is the reason for the delay." Surely they have just lost it and don't want to admit it.

The mind doubts, but the heart never does.

^ I doubt they've lost your package, Alex - just probably being thick.  Keep at them!

Pass the Parcel, which is run by Poste Haste. Never heard of it before but It's apparently a service marketed at low value Trademe (NZ's version of ebay) purchases (which this is). Never had a problem with any other courier firm.

lol Good luck with that!

After the rant it actually arrived yesterday afternoon. Was sure it had been lost, but still 10 days for an overnight courier is pretty poor. Pointless paying for the courier, may aswell have just sent it in the regular post. In fact, I may aswell have driven to Auckland and back to collect it!
