    Complain to the courier company. That is just plain dumb of the driver.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You have to realise these courier companies take great care in their employee selection processes and have developed by trial and error a programme of weeding out those who will not be suitable as a courier Drivers.

    This process will highlight all those that are completely illiterate, with absolutely no empathy for people, who show no duty of care for their customers possessions, have zero time management skills except at knock off time and couldn't drive their finger up their own bum if they tried.

    These people are promptly hired, then taught to drive like they own the bloody road, shown how to slick their hair up with "Product" given a set of the darkest sunnies imaginable and put to work delivering your precious possessions without any further training in the matter.

    Hence why your dog ate your courier delivery.

    I'd complain....... bitterly.

    Cheers

    I often get the impression couriers read labels like that and do the exact opposite. "Fragile" or "handle with care" is taken as a challenge to see just how much abuse it will take.

    I know someone who had a courier fake a signature on the ticket and leave several thousand $ worth of computer parts sitting on a doorstep in Christchurch! IIRC it was pretty obvious they had faked the signature, because they spelt the persons name wrong...

    hahaha

    I had a signature required parcel delivered that was left on the front door step in plain view of any passer by.

    It had been signed "Letter Box".

    Seems my letter box is way smarter than I have given it credit for.

    Only found that out after I complained.

    Cheers

    Some people think that the courier driver has only their parcel on board and all the time in the world to deliver it. If you have mega $ items being delivered, then have someone there to receive it. If you have a dog problem and are expecting courier parcels, then chain your mutts up. I send rifles all over the country side by courier and have never had a problem...I do make sure they are packaged in such a way that they don't look to be obviously a firearm.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Maybe if you have all the time in the world to sit around waiting for a courier who might come sometime today if you're lucky... or tomorrow... or the day after... or leave the package somewhere in the depot and forget about delivering it at all until I ring up to ask where it is.

    The whole point of a signature-only delivery is that if there isn't someone there to receive it then they leave a note and take it away again, not casually commit some fraud to make their job easier. Some of us don't have the luxury of not doing our job properly just because there is a bit of time pressure.

    Important things like guns I get delivered to me at work rather than home as there is usually someone there to recieve it, but not everyone has that option.

    Had a package arrive on a tuesday once with big red "SATURDAY DELIVERY" stickers on it. The business that sent it to me seemed a little unimpressed with the value they were getting by paying extra for the saturday delivery... can't think why!
