eBay Click and Collect
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:25:58 PM »
Just spotted this option recently, so I can get stuff delivered to an Argos store I can easily swing past on the way home. Great, no more chasing up parcels via couriers or signed for post office stuff.
The bonus is I can keep the steady stream of stuff low profile.
If you were paranoid, it could also be handy that every random place you get bike specific stuff from doesn't know your home address.
Used the option twice and seems to work fine.

Yep, Sainsbury's long or 24 hour opening is another very good option.
Had to read about it a bit and try it on something simple to see how you pick it as a option once you have paid. The seller then gets that store plus a unique code as the address to then use the courier of the choice.

I have started using Sainsbury's/Argos click and collect more as there is a store 2 minutes from where I work which is also on my direct route home so works out very handy.

One of my mates has a garage business so I get my stuff sent there & either go round there & pick it up or he takes the parcel home & I pick it up from his house.
Some of the parcel firms offer a collection & delivery service from one of the local shops so that also comes in handy.
I don't like advertising the fact that bikes are at my address so try not to get motorycycle related stuff delivered at home.

Ha, so it's not just me who takes the easier route of not having to explain / justify extra stuff!

I never really thought of the security angle before, even though security, especially regarding information that helps you become a target is first on my agenda generally. Probably because I rarely buy stuff for my bike and if I do it's rarely online. But I use click and collect all the time just for the sheer convenience. With highly unpredictable work patterns, no fixed place of work and suchlike, ordering anything for home delivery is a massive PITA for me, but being able to collect from the post office or Sainsbury's/Argos (same building anyway here) is a huge help, otherwise I'd never order anything. I have a monthly coffee bean sub and that always comes to the house, and I'm always rushing round playing chase the parcel. Had a great neighbour that used to take it in, but maybe it was one delivery too many as she has just moved!

The only V8 I'm likely to own comes in one litre tetrapaks and tastes like celery.

and some pedally ones as well!
