Neighbour's food delivery so early!!!

AIBU Neighbour- youngish with 3 small toddlers. They have food deliveries between 6am-7am. Recently their van has arrived between 6 and 6. 30am. Neighbours are not going out to work, no reason for needing an early delivery. I won't say anything but I still think it's a bit inconsiderate especially now when delivery slots are easier to get.

The point being, it waked us up! All the crashing and banging as they unload the crates.

Maybe it's the easiest time for them when 3 children aren't running riot and they aren't working.

Maybe it was the only time they could get. The delivery driver should be a bit quieter when unloading and loading their van.

The anti social hours slots are cheaper... so maybe it's the only affordable slot they can get. Would 11pm be better?

It's a food delivery for a family so I wouldn't be annoyed by it.

How do you know they are not working from home and getting the delivery in before they log on to work.

Food delivery slots aren’t easier to get in my area. Sometimes all that’s left is the early ones.

Also personally from perspective of a mum with 2 under 2 and 3 kids having the shopping arrive early is much easier. I have time to unpack it and means we have a fresh stocked house for the day / week

How do you know they don’t have a reason for needing that delivery slot?

Oh god get a life

You have no idea why they need a delivery that early. Or if they could get later ones

YABVU. Move to a big rural detached house if you can’t bear everyday, normal noises

If you’re going to complain to anyone, make it the supermarket - not your neighbours. That would be pathetic. They can’t control how loud their delivery driver is and maybe those slots were the best suited to their needs out of what was available.

Presuming the delivery is once a week & not a daily event, YABU.

It's still hard to get slots.

How can you get annoyed about this.

You posted this the other day??

they dont deliver that early here,
i would complain to the supermarket, it is anti social.

You think you know about their lives. You don't. Sit down.

Did you hope OP for a long list of frothing replies? Again?

Wrong link before but you posted this exact thing a few days ago. Neighbour getting 6am delivery who doesn’t work.

Yes, slots are still difficult to get, which is why they may have had to take that slot in the absence of others. I wfh, full time, and get my delivery between 7 and 8. Would prefer my old slot which was during the evening, but impossible to get post Covid.

@BlackLabLover if this is your biggest neighbourly concern then you are one lucky person!

Also my neighbours aren’t aware of any of my health concerns - so maybe you aren’t aware of theirs either. Many disabilities are invisible (like mine).

Live and let live

If anything, complain to the supermarket. A delivery should not disturb anyone. I have had a 6.30am delivery for about ten years now and sometimes all the shopping is unloaded and at my doorway before I even realise they're there. But really, 6am on a weekday isn't particularly early anyway.
