On 27.7.19 I got an email saying they had attempted to deliver my parcel. I suspect the driver didn't even get out of bed. I was in the room next to the door. No one knocked. No card was left. Their customer service is rubbish. The email telling me the delivery drivers lies suggested I phone the driver. The driver's phone number was a string of zeros. Webchat didn't help. This driver's lie means the parcel will not arrive for at least another 48 hours. I consider the driver's actions gross misconduct and a failure of character. They should be sacked or offered no further freelancing opportunities and fined/sued for reputational damage if self-employed.

I placed an Amazon order which was to be delivered by Yodel by 4th July. On 4th the tracking was updated to say that delivery had been attempted but was unsuccessful and asked that I contact them for the delivery. I had been out for approximately 10 minutes and assumed I had been unlucky enough to have missed it in that time. I contacted Yodel to be informed that they were very busy and that no delivery had been attempted as there would be a delay. My Amazon order info was then updated to say that I had requested a different delivery date, although they are unable to give me a new date or time slot. Now I have the inconvenience of having to wait in for who knows how long or miss the actually delivery attempt. The implication of the false tracking details was that the delay was my fault rather than theirs. Obviously to deceive the person using their services into believing that they were at least attempting to meet the service for which they were being paid. Now my delivery will be late due to Yodel issues, and I am being blamed. They need to improve their business to meet promises they make, or admit when they are unable to. What they do not need to do is blame recipients of their deliveries for their incompetence.

My package arrived at Yodel's depot on 22/5. On 23/5 at 1.30pm Yodel's tracking updated to say it was out for delivery. I rearranged my afternoon and waited in for Yodel to arrive. At 3.30 Yodel's website updated the status of my parcel to reflect that Yodel had called at my property but I wasn't there, and that Yodel had left a card.

Except I was at home, nobody from Yodel knocked or buzzed or rang, and there was no card.

Twelve days later, Yodel have still not delivered my parcel. Yodel's tracking shows the parcel status as "in transit" as of 29/5. I have made one phone call to Yodel, had six online chats with Yodel's chat-based "customer service", emailed Yodel's social media escalation team as Yodel requested after I left Yodel a bad review on TrustPilot, and at the request of Yodel's Twitter account, sent Yodel a Twitter DM which Yodel have not answered despite my sending it to Yodel six days ago and chasing it with Yodel once a day since then.

Will be in touch with the Ombudsman. For anyone else considering contact retailadr dot org dot UK slash delivery-couriers

Never used their service before , my parcel was coming. They don't give you any time slots about your delivery time . You need to wait for whole day and after all day waiting you will see online tracking that can't deliver your parcel because driver can't locate your property. Excellent and I was checking online tracking number that might be my number now but no , they don't even update you . You need to contact them. So very disappointed

Booked delivery with yodel through Parcel2go (also terrible). They picked up my parcel and then issued an e-mail saying it hadn't been picked up, as i hadn't been there at the pick up i immediately re-booked another as directed. Found out that it had been taken and contacted them to see where it was as it hadn't been delivered. They wouldn't talk to me as they said it was booked through another company , even though they now had my parcel. When parcel2go spoke to them they said they had to re-book a pick-up , already picked up! Nice little scam they've got going, my parcel has been stolen and i'll be reporting a theft with cctv footage of the pick-up. Dishonest cowboys!

Never again with Yodeldirect.
I used them to send three large parcels: 63 cm x 41 cm x 34 cm - 19 kg - 56 cm x 38 cm x 23 cm - 15 kg and 32 cm x 32 cm x 32 cm - 9 kg. Well... they lost all of them. After a month of trying to understand what was going on through the customer service (the chat on their site) I had six different versions, from the parcels are on their way (Where?), to they have been given to ASENDIA, to confirming they were in the country of destination (but not delivered yet) and today they actually said that the parcels had been delivered. This is outrageous. The customer service is the only way to contact them and when they dont want to answer legitimate questions of clarifications they just disconnect you. Totally unhelpful and rude. They obviously dont understand the meaning that one trusts them, pays them for a service (and they are not cheap) and their lack of professionalism has a devastating impact on peoples life. They come with a standard of phrase of apologies which copy and paste (Im sure many many times for the disappointed customers). Occasionally their social media team appear with an announcement and then they confirm that they can't do anything.These are not decent trading standards.
Stay away from this company for your own good.

Thank you for your patience Joshua ,I do see a ticket was raised to the depot to conduct a driver's interview but the depot cannot get hold of him they will try again ,please give it some time as the timescale is 24 hours for feedback.I do apologise about the inconvenience.
Well it has been 48hours since I raised a ticket. And I was told the driver had been informed to collect from wrong address and re-deliver. I even gave my phone number, so the driver could contact me, to tell me where he wrongly delivered it too.

Something very dodgy about this service

This is the last message from the depot, "Note Morning I have tried to call the driver no answer left voice message to call the office Thanks Geraldine

its bad - no notification through teh door until the final attempt (so it was not possible to arrange a possible time for delivery) then refusal to deliver again. Have been forced to buy through another company and pray that they don't use yodel

Almost every time my parcel is delivered by Yodel there is a problem. Their couriers usually do not attempt to deliver the parcels .they do not leave the cards and have the phones off.
I have been ordering the same product for 3 weeks since the courier does not come and he just that lies nobody was at home then immediately sends the package to the sender. I do not even have a chance for redelivery.
Today I waited for the 3rd time for the courier watching the driveway in front of my house. The courier did not come and lied that he could not deliver the parcel because nobody was home. No card. no bell and his phone is off.
This is the worst company in the world. No company so ignores their customers as yodel does. This useless company should be judicious liquidated!.

Tip for consumers: BE AWARE OF yodel !!!

On tracking my order online, they said it had been "delivered through my letterbox on 'X' day at 'X' time". However, I never received it. It was not in my letterbox. After making several attempts to chat online with their customer service team, I gave up as they were always "busy"! I finally received a response via Twitter telling me that they could not locate it because it said that it had been delivered and there was nothing they could do. On another occasion, my delivery was thrown on top of the communal letterboxes in my building without any care given for anyone to see and steal. Very unprofessional and disappointing. Will ensure never to use them again!

Worst company. No way of tracking the driver, making the call. The entire day is spent waiting for a parcel that still hasn't arrived when it was meant to be delivered before 1pm. Staff can't reach their own drivers. STAY AWAY!

First I am accused of signing for a parcel when I was on holiday. When I offered to prove I was away the story changed and they said the parcel was lost at the reading depot and not delivered now the driver is adamant he put it in my porch.
The sooner this outfit goes bust the better

Tip for consumers: Use some one else, Anyone else in fact.

Yodle tried to deliver my parcel on 3 occasions all pm which should have told them there was a problem. The final card said parcel returned to depot. On visiting the depot and waiting over one hour I was told the parcel could not be found. They took my phone number and said they would call when it was found and would deliver at a day and time to suit me. Then without notice they again tried to deliver pm when I was out. Attempts to telephone failed as you cannot get by their automated service but was told by the service no further deliveries would be made and the parcel would be returned to sender the next day. I again attended the depot when the parcel was at last found. Poor service

BEWARE, Yodel drivers do not ring door bells, call cellphones or even knock. Yodel claims to have attempted to deliver my parcel three times, and I've been home every time. When I gave them a cellphone number to call (which is also on the front door), they say the driver can't call as this is "not part of their service". AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Just unbelievable. I've never had a positive experience with them. If they actually turn up at all, the package will be left in the rain when it needs a signature. I now contact companies before buying to ensure it will not be through Yodel.

they say they have attempted to deliver my parcel on three days in a row, saying that no one was in and a note was left, this is total crap, someone was in and no notes left. they said they tried to deliver at 12.04 today no one in note left, i was stood looking out onto my street at this time no one has been and again no note. the are the worst, laziest and most untruthful delivery company ever. My advice STAY CLEAR and NEVER use them.

I ordered a dslr camera 2 months ago. Yodel was supposed to deliver it.
But I have never got my parcel. Or even a card.
Yodel investigated the case. The gps details shows another address and they do not have signature. So it is no proof to the delivery.
But their website still states that the package was delivered.
The seller ignores me and paypal does not give me refund because the seller has proof of the postage. (tracking number)
So basically Yodel stole 400 pounds from me and I cannot do anything about it.

Question:
Answer:

It's a legit company in that it's a company that exists. It's not one I would recommend - even on the TrustPilot page you can see one in four customers are eating it one star and not getting their packages, and that's with a bunch of frame and paid for five star reviews artificially bumping up their ratings,
