Signing for goods

  ened 07:19 16 Jul 08

If everybody insisted on opening every package and examining every item they receive the delivery drivers would never get through their day.

Would it not be sensible for responsible firms to include the word 'Unchecked' on the delivery note?

It does seem to me to be poor customer relations (not to mention pedantic) for companies to fall back on the excuse that 'you signed for it therefore it was in good condition when you received it'!

Let's face it I am sure it must only involve a small percentage of their sales.

The advice is to WRITE 'UNCHECKED' aginst your signature.

write 'unchecked' or 'unexamined' alongside your signature - the driver will be quite used to people doing that.

I invariably try to write "Unexamined" but with the new electronic devices the couriers now carry it is not always possible, or effective.

EBuyer specifically ask you to write unchecked - if that is the case.

As others have stated, write 'unchecked' or 'damaged' alongside signature. The only problem that I seem to have lately, is with Royal Mail deliveries. They never seem to want a signature, no matter what the item is.

laurie53-- 'unchecked' can become an extension of a compressed signature ;o)
