How Do I Let Yodel Know About a Missing Delivery?

Read these helpful tips to get assistance with a missing delivary from Yodel.

Yodel is a global courier that delivers parcels from online retailers like Amazon to their respective customers. Unfortunately, Yodel has garnered a bad reputation in the recent past as a result of undelivered packages. It is highly frustrating to wait days for a parcel to arrive only to be disappointed. If a parcel does not arrive in the stipulated time, immediate action should be taken.

The first step should be to track your order. Ensure that the order explicitly states "Delivered." If it does not, you should wait a while longer. If it does, you should verify a few extra details such as the shipping address and payment confirmation. If both are positive, then you should look for a notice of attempted delivery. Only when you cannot find your parcel anywhere should you contact Yodel about the missing delivery.

If Yodel tried to deliver the parcel but were unable to reach you, they will leave a call card. On the card will be details of the options you can take going forward. Look around the delivery location for your package and if you do not find it, see if someone else accepted the delivery. The card should have the necessary details if the delivery was left with a neighbor or loved one. If the parcel was not left behind in a safe location or with one of your neighbors, Yodel will try to deliver the package during the next working day and will leave the details on the card.

You can receive either of two cards from Yodel. If you get a green card, you should call Yodel directly through the phone number on the card. If you receive an orange card, you should visit the package's tacking site and organize another delivery date or collect it from the closest Yodel depot. The number on the green card will often be the driver's number and you can call the number up until 9pm to ask about your missing delivery.

The tracking site is often a self-service page to select another delivery date or collect the parcel yourself. On the tracking site there is access to the 'Have Your Say' survey where you can notify Yodel of what happened to your package. Yodel will use the feedback of your missing delivery to try and get your parcel to you. You will need your parcel's tracking number to effectively utilize the survey.

If all else fails, you can contact Yodel's customer service directly and let them know of a missing delivery.
