Nightline!!! Better than pidgeons?

I just want to say nightline are a joke of a courier. I'm having to use then through a company and tracking the shipments is like trying to find a golden egg. This is the latest of numerous packages I've been sent.

The tracking system on their site doesn't work. Sends you to a blank page with pending on it?

Costumer service don't answer the phones.

I'm not even annoyed. I just wonder how the hell they are still operating???

If you think Nightline is bad, this sums up a courier in the UK we work with on a daily basis, even today. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...join-firm.html

Nightline are now owned by UPS, so I'm sure they'll only get better...

Sh1t couriers are permitted becase we're terrible customers. If you order from [X] and they send it via Nightwats or FastFail then give them an earful down the phone. Once they get enough complaints they'll change.

DPD are usually fine btw, as are UPS(not like in the US) or An Post.

We stopped using a retailer because of failed deliveries by Nightline and told them so. The worst of the couriers. DPD, UPS, DHL, An Post, etc. can find us but Nightline seem incapable of doing so, while spouting lies about nobody being home, or no answer when they phoned for directions. Since Eircode came in every courier, bar Nightline, just arrives as expected.

Must admit we have been getting deliveries on time from Nightline for many, many years, and we live in the absolutely arse end of nowhere with a pot-holed lane to boot. The lads are always nice and friendly. I feel sorry for them as their work loads seem to have increased. It's a stressful job.

was at my mums earlier this week in the depths of west Yorkshire, ordered something at 9pm delivered by yodel the following day at 11am ,
yodel website showed delivery driver on google maps and told you how many deliveries he had before you all in real time, amazing.

obviously the warehouses are in the uk but that was service
