Well just off the phone there with DX a little while ago. Since I have not left my flat all day long waiting for the visa that was supposed to arrive between 8am and 6pm. Around 4:45 I checked the status again and it said "Courier Attempted". Which is false since I have been home all day long.

I rearranged delivery for tomorrow between 9am and 1pm and if they don't deliver between those times there will be problems.

First off, I had a sneaky suspicion that DX used subcontractors, which was confirmed to me twice tonight by DX. No 'official' driver or van, just some dude (or lady) that uses their own car and maybe drops things off. Unsettling to say the least when dealing with such sensitive documents.

BUT! I'm not saying you'll have a problem. Oh no, I've had this problem before several times with a company called Hermes. My suspicions are that for my area Hermes and DX are using the same subcontracted courier. It is so bad that I will not order from any company that uses Hermes because they just simply can not deliver the parcel, however, under these circumstances I don't have a choice not to use the company. If tomorrow at 1:01 that package is not in-hand I will make it my mission to find out who this subcontractor courier is.

Even more troubling, I found this on Gumtree: Dx-Secure-Require-Self-employed-multi-Drop-Couriers' in Glasgow in Drivers, Riders & Courier Jobs Contract type: All, Permanent, Temporary.... Nice.

Sorry, this was a "kind of" informative, definitely peeved post rant.

These subcontractor types always makes me nervous. I had a passport sent to me in NZ, meant to be a signed for packet. Didn't arrived although it showed delivered when they checked it out.

It was delivered. The driver left in on the porch across the street, and down a few houses. Not sure how street number 15 could be mistaken for 29 but there you are. No one signed for it either. The Courier company told me to 'go over and get it' myself.' And even though it was dark by this time, and they had a big nasty looking dog, that is what I did. My packet was still lying on the porch, just out of reach of said chained up pit bull.

I raised holy old of course. In the end the driver admitted to not being able to read. They sacked him. The Canadian Consulate at Wellington changed courier companies. And I got to fly home on time.


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

My local Fed Ex has the uniform, van etc, but he is a Contractor.

The local Post Office is a contractor, so is the guy who brings it up from Denver.

Never asked Mr Brown.

This sounds awful....surely the Embassy ought to be using a decent courier service with secuirty form pick up to delivery. I'm frankly a little bit perturbed to read this, given how much the porcess costs us to GET the visa in time And money. Fingers crossed they'll actually deliver tomorrow. I'm sure they will if you've chased it up.
