I live on a short shared driveway recently changed to a private road, all sealed, wide, easy access, easy turn around etc. The local RD driver will only leave a card to call in the letterbox and never ever deliver a single parcel. We are only 800m off the main road and not in the wop wops (10 mins from Albany). In this day and age living in Auckland I cannot believe it is impossible to get a delivery. Not only does RD add about an extra week then I get the card to call and have to drive in to pick up the parcel the opposite way to work and during their operating hours. Other courier companies seem to be used less often but they will deliver and leave on our door step which is fantastic!
