That sucks. I had a very similar experience also through P2G and Yodel where some XT / Mavic wheels never turned up at their intended destination yet were signed for by someone random so had been "delivered". Errr hello ? :evil:
Had to fight long and hard to get the compensation out of them too but now will never send anything of value without it.
Hope it works out for both yourself and the buyer.

Non bike related, had a parcel lobbed over our back gate by Yodel, wasnt even for us, right number, wrong street.

Thats a wounder about the bike, not a million miles from Malvern, will keep a look out if im over that way :(

I'm as annoyed as the seller about this, I'd started to collect bits to upgrade it, now I have no idea where the bike is.

I've asked around in the area and no one has a clue.

I'm the only one in my property and I was in Peterborough at the time it was signed for. Usually the couriers will leave a note through my door if they leave it with a neighbour, but nothing at all last week.

Knowing Yodel its been delivered to an address in another town :roll:

The problem is the longer Parcels2go and Yodel delay things the less likely the driver is to remember what he did with it.

Yodel seem to change their name every few years, I guess that is because they don't like the reputation their old name had.

Before Yodel the were Home Delivery Network, which didn't get glowing reviews either:

Before that I think the were White Arrow.
