I have also got cctv on the front of my house.

  27. Lisa Higham

    Good Evening,
    I’m looking for an explanation of your delivery methods to my address. I ordered some things from Mountain Warehouse which were supposedly delivered by yourselves last Tuesday to my house. In reality they were dumped at a holiday home in my village. Fortunately the guests who were staying in that property contacted the owner who happened to know who I was and contacted me to go and collect my parcel.
    So, I was horrified to learn from Amazon that a camera that I have ordered was also scheduled to be delivered by your company. I actually contacted Amazon to warn them of my recent experience but it had already been dispatched. I received an email today informing me that it has been delivered to my house…..surprise, surprise no it hasn’t. I asked Amazon to pass on the simple information to whatever idiot is delivering for you in this area that if you can’t find a property then you phone the number provided to you.
    Where did your driver dump it…….certainly not where they were supposed to
    I await your reply with interest, Amazon have been informed
