Steve Nowottny, news and features editor at MoneySavingExpert.com, says: "Having goods delivered to your door should be convenient, but sadly we hear countless horror stories of poor service from some firms – whether it's deliveries simply not showing up, 'missed delivery' cards being left when you were in or even packages being dumped in the bin.

"When you order something, in practice you often have little choice over which firm delivers your goods, as this is frequently decided by the retailer. Generally you have no direct relationship with the delivery firm, as the retailer's their employer. But consumers do have rights when firms don't deliver – and you should use them.

"If you're unhappy with a delivery or it simply didn't arrive, complain to the retailer – that's who your contract's with, and it's up to the retailer to put things right. Ask it to justify why it uses delivery firms which offer such poor customer service. Parcel delivery firms will only be forced to up their game if those they deliver to insist that retailers make them."
