I despair.

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Tue 17-Dec-13 22:55:49

That should be 1.30am.

Despairs more.

MrsTerrysChocolateOrange Tue 17-Dec-13 22:56:08

They gave themselves 14 hours?

What? 1:30 AM ?? So they could wake you in the middle if the night to deliver a sofa?

The world has gone mad.

UsedToBeNDP Tue 17-Dec-13 22:58:05

Woah, woah, woah. Your time slot is 2 hours in THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT???

Eh?

grumpyoldbat Tue 17-Dec-13 22:58:42

130am? Omg seriously. Can't imagine neighbours being any more impressed than you are.

UsedToBeNDP Tue 17-Dec-13 22:58:43

Is it an error on the paperwork, perhaps?

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Tue 17-Dec-13 22:58:44

They turned up at lunchtime. Then discovered they did not have our sofa on the lorry. 3 year it has taken me to choose this. And now I can't have it. Except in the middle of the night.

To clarify, CSL have said they will deliver your sofa between 23:30 and 01:30? Are nighttime sofa deliveries all the rage nowadays?

FannyFifer Tue 17-Dec-13 22:59:11

Wtf! That must be a mistake surely.

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Tue 17-Dec-13 23:00:54

Seriously. All gone tits up and that was their solution. We said stick it of course.

Salmotrutta Tue 17-Dec-13 23:00:56

God, I want a nighttime sofa delivery now!

(I don't really need a sofa mind)

It would be fabulous looking at the twitching nets of the neighbours!

LegoCaltrops Tue 17-Dec-13 23:01:28

That's the maddest delivery slot I've ever heard of!

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Tue 17-Dec-13 23:02:49

The driver said he was doing us a favour!

timidviper Tue 17-Dec-13 23:02:58

Good grief! I had Jehovah's Witnesses call at 10 to 9 the other morning and thought that was bad!

So assuming you want it before christmas, and everyone else wants their stuff before christmas, and all the other delivery slots are taken, and driver has said he'll come back after his deliveries to make sure you get it in time for Christmas? Might be worth staying up late one night for. Or just wait.

If a delivery driver had shown up, then found my item was not on the van, I'd have been deeply impressed if they'd offered to come back with it later - even in the dead of night.

Probably due to my experience with other couriers and their 'nothing to do with me, kiss goodbye to your money/item' attitude.

How will you get your sofa now?

And did it really take you three years to choose it?! shock

BohemianGirl Wed 18-Dec-13 03:43:01

I'm not seeing the problem with a midnight soda delivery!

ZillionChocolate Wed 18-Dec-13 07:13:49

I'd imagine before Christmas they might well be fully booked. They found a way of you having your sofa before Christmas. Yes it's annoying, but what better solution do you have?

Pooka Wed 18-Dec-13 07:18:52

Not great but better than no sofa!

I'd set up camp in sitting room with good DVDs and doze. Or make dh do it.

Felyne Wed 18-Dec-13 07:19:16

As a child, that was usually about the time when Santa turned up to leave my pressies so I guess it's nothing new...

I would be annoyed but impressed they are prepared to do it. Unlike one company whose response to a missing mattress was "There's nothing I can do". A midnight delivery would have been ideal given I had got rid of the old mattress.

PrimalLass Wed 18-Dec-13 07:34:45

Well if you told them to stick it you have rejected the delivery slot they tried to give you, so you probably can't expect it now before Christmas. He was trying to be helpful.

So what time did it arrive ?
