    Hi,

    The above delivery service was launched on 1 October. Has anyone got a delivery from them yet?

    An item I am waiting on shipped yesterday at 4pm and I’m told it will be delivered today by 9pm. However, I’m feeling a little cynical it will be delivered today.

  • hey all
    has anyone ever bought an Amazon returns pallet from the liquidation store on the internet and is there any money to be made ?




  • There are a few Youtube videos of people doing this. The people are mainly based in the US and seem to make a bit of money doing it. I've never heard of this being done here, but I'd imagine the delivery cost for a pallet would be very high.




  • never mind the crazy high postage costs for selling stuff in / from Ireland to take into account.

  • It's possible .

    I know that large items delivery direct from the Parcel Hub have been done by An Post as late as 8pm ( though as far as I know not on a Saturday )




  • Edit, I see this is their new delivery service from their consolidation warehouse in rathcoole. (didn't realise it had already opened)

  • I got an update and my item will be delivered today (Sunday) by 9PM. You can track it too on a map. It also says it’s 6 stops away and you can also cancel the delivery if you wish or leave delivery instructions i.e. an access code or leave the item in a safe place.




  • Was pleasantly surprised yesterday. Got a notification along with a map for tracking the delivery. Got the delivery no problem




  • Item delivered just now. Great service delivering on a Sunday. Wonder if this is just temporary while it’s being launched or will be ongoing?

    Are you in Dublin? I'm hoping my orders will be delivered by Amazon Logistics now as An Post are always late recently.

    You can track the an post parcel in real time from the text notification.

    I can see exactly where the delivery van is whenever I get an post delivery. Usually it is within the same 30-45min window every day.

    Really? The link in the text is just for rearranging delivery for me. The delivery times are fairly erratic. Some of the time there's no out for delivery scan.

    The only courier I've been able to do this for before was DPD and not recently.

    My error, it's on the email notification. Click "track my parcel" after clicking on the main link and it gives you the precise location of the van

    I've never got any email from An Post, just texts.

    The sender has to choose notification type. They can choose both if they want to

    Since when?

    I've never seen this on any AP tracking.

    I've heard of this a few times in the last few months .

    My guess is that they are trialing it on certain packages in various offices .




  • Prime user, small item. Ordered Sunday night, dispatched now with AP. Will see if any of the next few go with AL.

    Are you mixing this up with DPD?

    They allow to view the van and show the number of stops before getting to you. Viewable online or in the app.

    No. I saw it yesterday when I went into AP tracking.




  • Prime user. An item on prime is 23 sterling but only gives me 12 quid delivery? Is this new.?

    Checked terms on main site and I see this. Is this new ?


    Is your order being delivered outside the UK?
    The order must be £25 (including local VAT) or above to qualify for FREE Delivery to the Republic of Ireland. If your order qualifies for FREE Delivery, you'll still be charged a delivery fee for any ineligible items in the order.

    Haven't been charged delivery in years. Strange.

    Spotted one at Ushers Island today.




  • Just got a call from the driver this morning. 9am on a Sunday! I had received the notifications and just thought, ah grand it's going to An Post. I was wrong and will now have to start paying more attention to Amazon orders!

    Chatted to my local postie. It's being trialed in some areas and it's connected to their handheld device.

    There are some concerns about it by the usual union stalwarts, but the feedback is that people tend to stay in and wait for the parcel so less non-delivery.
    He expects it to be rolled out to all drivers soon once union is happy that the data won't be used for anything else




  • My third Amazon delivery in a row to be delivered by Amazon Logistics. Was due this Wednesday but is out for delivery this morning.
    One of the items was shipped from Italy too. Much quicker than AP so far.

    And....delivered. Delivery chap was wearing an Amazon work shirt too.




  • I'm trying to order items on Amazon prime and I've bought stuff, and went to buy more and I get the rant of, we no longer deliver to your location...

    Fishing reels I've bought for 130 euros.. Looking for another... They won't post

    Coils for vape tanks, same we no longer deliver to your location.

    Fishing asscessories.... We no longer ship to your location 17 available

    Torches.... We no longer ship to your location...

    I had my eye on a really cool looking imitation of a brass telescope as I like the nautical look around the house.... 7 available we no longer ship to your location...

    I'm getting really deflated with my trust in Amazon... Location shouldn't be a problem.

    I order rare comics for my son... No problem there




  • Apparently Amazons "we missed you" notices don't have much information about where to go to collect items and people have been turning up at their local An Post office to collect items

    I would imagine they'd try deliver the next day.

  • My last two deliveries have been Amazon logistics. Not a fan so far.

    I know what time the postman comes, DPD send a text.

    Amazon at 1am were still saying due Wednesday, woke up and it's out for delivery. 5 hours later it arrived. Saturday was a disaster, ruined plans for the day, particularly as driver went in and out of the estate multiple times. Two different drivers.

    First prime day package has been dispatched, relieved to see it's coming via DPD
