Customer Outraged After DPD Driver Chucks Parcels Worth Hundreds Over 6ft Fence
| Last updated
A shopper was left in bits after their parcels worth hundreds of pounds were hurled over a 6ft fence by their delivery driver. Take a look at that shocking moment below:
At this point, we've all seen some strange delivery attempts thanks to Ring doorbells and security cameras.
And while we've accepted that some parcels might be left in the bin, on the roof, and ever so securely under a door mat, we cannot and will not accept them being lobbed over a 6ft-tall fence.
But, of course, that doesn't stop it happening and one homeowner has the CCTV footage to prove it.
As you can see from the video above, without so much as a knock, the DPD driver hurled the packages - which are believed to have contained a PS5 and a Dyson fan - as the Lincolnshire resident recounted: "I honestly have no idea why she did it. I was in my kitchen waiting for the delivery and the first I knew about it was the thud of the PS5 hitting the ground.
"It's quite hard getting hold of a PS5. But I finally was able to order one. I was off work and keeping eye on the tracking of my parcel on my phone," the resident added.
"She didn't ring at the front door and our delivery instructions are that the back gate is unlocked if we are not it."
And do you know what the worst part was? The customer had paid for next-day delivery.
Yep, £10 for speedy delivery, only for the £1,015 order would be treated with the same respect you show an old sandal at the beach.
The customer was left reeling, saying: "You don't drop £1,000 of electrical goods over a 6ft fence full stop, never mind without checking if the person is in.
"This is my back gate. She didn't try the front door. Just walked around and dropped over."
We mean, just look at how bent the driver's arms are, that's a fully fledged shot-put throw right there.
To make things all the more annoying, the homeowner said: "My safe space instructions are: 'If we're out, leave with neighbour or back gate will be unlocked."
Naturally, the online shopper reached out to DPD after seeing the video but heard nothing back, so they decided to upload the clip on TikTok.
As you can imagine, viewers were tearing into the failed attempt, with one user writing: "Clearly can see the photo of the fan on one of the boxes."
While another said: "Is it damaged?" To which we'd hazard a guess that yes, yes it is.
The video quickly went viral and after raking up over a million views, DPD got in touch, saying: "The behaviour of our driver here is completely unacceptable.
“We are carrying out a full investigation and will always take firm action where the behaviour of our people falls below the high standards we expect."
