Yodel Delivery Company Customer Help Post

Yodel Delivery Company Customer Help Post

I like to think I am a patient lady however when I find that a type of service which I have paid for is not up to standard I have no problem complaining. 9/10 my complaints are recognized, the situation is sorted and I leave as a happy customer however over the last month I have had issues with a company... a company who is meant to be trusted, a company who is meant to get parcel's to my home securely and in a good timely manner.

The last 2 times Yodel have been hired to deliver goods to my address in a good timely manner, they have failed. They have not failed a little bit. They have failed miserably. At first I thought I was the only person who just had back luck until I saw people on social media networks complain about poor service. I decided to dig a little deeper, after digging I found that they had already appeared on Watchdog!

In January, I waited 2 weeks for one toy order for Maxwell to arrive as well as 5 days for a next day home delivery order to arrive. When the home order did arrive to my disappointment 3 items were missing.  On both occasions I rang Yodel up and gave them a opportunity to try and sort the issue however this was not the case. I found that there staff liked to pass blame to one another and daily I was told that items would be delivered the next day and they were not. I was also lied to and told that items had "tried to be delivered" in fact they had not. I had waited in all day for items to appear and they did not.

I have not written this blog post to bitch (although I feel I could after a 2 week wait for items). I have written this post to hopefully help anyone en-counting issues with this company.

- If you are wanting to talk to a customer service agent, call 0844 453 7443 - This is their direct number. There is not a option 5 listed on there options when you call, but when listening to options wait for the options to finish at 4 and press option 5 on your keypad. This will allow you to get through to there customer service center.

- There is now a "live chat" option on there website. When "live chatting" to them, make sure you keep a record of who you spoke to and what was said. This can always be done via a screen shot. I always find this important as at Yodel, they seem to pass blame to one another. I found when I had records of chat's I could back conversations up and tell a customer service agent exactly what had been said.

- Always remember that although Yodel deliver, your contract is with the business or person you are getting your delivery from. The person who took you money/sent the item via Yodel is reasonable. If Yodel are mucking you around you are within your rights to ask the company for a refund or ask for them to resolve the situation. Ask them to chase Yodel from there end 9/10 they shall.

- If you are wanting to contact the top, use this website and find the CEO of Yodels email. It is a free website to use and I have found on several occasions that it helps to go to the top!

If you are wary about using Yodel, a heads up. These company's are happy to use Yodel to deliver goods! This list was written in January 2014.

  1. a lot of the couriers seem to have had major issues recently they are just getting over, I have heard so many people with complaints about many different ones, my issues have been with my hermes. Its so frustrating!

  2. Yodel is Company i frequently hear bad things about!

  3. I haven't had a bad experience with yodel yet but it think DHL are the best. They give you a time slot and you can track where the van is
