A delivery driver has been caught red-handed ‘playing basketball’ with a parcel worth £600 by tossing it 11-feet into the air. Watch the clip below:
Mohammed Ghuff was in Dubai last month when a package containing car parts was delivered to his home in Accrington, Lancashire.
The package remained outside on the concrete for more than a week before the 37-year-old returned.
Upon his arrival, Mohammed discovered that £400 worth of the goods had been destroyed.
CCTV footage captures the moment the delivery driver took a photo of the package to show it had been safely delivered.
Much to Mohammed’s horror, the courier then attempts to launch the package over his nine-foot fence.
The parcel can be seen falling to the ground before colliding with a wall of bricks.
After opening up his package on his return, Mohammed was shocked to find the majority of the car parts were broken and waterlogged.
A third item in the delivery, a car airbag, luckily didn’t deploy after falling to the ground.
Taking to Twitter last month, Mohammed shared the video alongside the caption: "Thank you @Hermesparcels for delivering my parcel!
"I'm not sure if your courier driver was trying to play basketball with my parcel. All my items are damaged, the worst courier company ever!
"You clearly don't care about your customers! My parcel was thrown over a 10ft fence by your courier driver and left in the rain!
"It is damaged! Despite my complaint and sending you a CCTV recording of your driver throwing the parcel over the fence, no one cares!"
Twitter users shared their outrage over the incident, as one wrote: "That's funny, what was wrong with the front door?"
Another person said: "They lost three of my parcels last month, they are the biggest cowboy outfit in the United Kingdom."
A third simply commented: "Wow."
Speaking to the Mirror last week, Mohammed said: "I was away in Dubai and it was delivered to my business address.
"I was looking through my CCTV and there was a box sat in the middle of my yard so I reviewed the footage to see them put the parcel on the floor, take a picture, and then throw it over the fence.
"When I came back the box was soaking wet because it had been sat out.
"One of the items was an airbag for a car worth £200 so I'm glad it didn't deploy."
"I don't know how these companies operate."
A spokesperson for EVRi told LADbible: “We have spoken to the customer to apologise and offered a goodwill payment for the inconvenience. We are also helping to arrange a replacement item.
"Our local team has spoken to the courier involved to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
