when the pda states you have delivered an item, no card has been left, because you delivered but customer phones up and says not received???

I have been questioned today on an item I delivered start of last week. Only asked if I remembered and all I could say was if the pda says delivered and no card pushed through then I delivered it.

Does it just come down to my word against theirs?

Funnily enough, the exact same thing happened to me today too. I just said if there's no note and it's days delivered I must have delivered it but couldn't remember as it was a week ago. Pda says I was there

If you scanned it on your PDA,it will show up where you scanned the item,so if you scanned the item outside the property then that should be proof enough that you delivered it and that the customer is probably pulling a fast one.

Mmm some customers are not aware how much information We can glean from a PDA after delivery.Even better when You find the discarded carton in their green bin from the parcel they claim they never received lol

I've had parcels addressed to neighbouring houses several times before. This usually only happens when customers use a drop down address finder when ordering online. This is the only scenario to my knowledge that the GPS and PDA data would fall short of being able to prove or disprove depending on what barcode is scanned on the parcel.

I was indeed stood outside the house. I remembered the house as they have a metal box outside.
So ......I need not worry on this occasion??

Thanks for replies all

Same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. I got asked a week later so couldn’t remember the packet specifically, but said if I scanned it as delivered, then it went thru their quite large letterbox. The pda confirmed I scanned it, but there was no location info provided. Not heard anything since.

It would be very brazen of you to take it all the way their to the door step and steal an item with all these cameras all over the place these days it is such a pity those who question us all about such trivial matters cannot do their own job's of ordering uniform or putting names down on overtime sheets in such a speedy and efficient manner!

I have read & reread your post, why would you even leave a card when it's been delivered? Does the PDA actually say the above?

The pda has it down as delivered.
When manager came with his printout it said on it no P739 card left so I am guessing they must have asked whoever phoned to say not received if they had a card.
I said to the manager that there would be no card if it was delivered

get them to double check the address with the sender.

I had one that a stand-in delivered to a No7 as it said on the parcel when I got back on delivery the customer had complained and I realised that she lives at No 47. In this case, she had filled out the web form wrong so she took the hit.
