I add my Tel. mobile phone number to my address and a note “Appeler si besoin d’itineraire” on the order / delivery instructions. For Amazon I also add the GPS coordinates (off the satnav). Both as a line(s) within the address so a subcontractor will also see it on the label. Sub-sub-contractors for deliveries won’t get passed your note to UPS etc. So you put it on the address so it gets put on the label.
Chronopost is also often delegated to your local postie. Don’t let them take the pi$$. You’ve paid for delivery and you pay the same prices and taxes as everyone else. So don’t let them evade providing the service you’ve paid for.
I’ve devised these strategies as I have often not been in a position where I could go and collect if they only want to deliver to easy concentrated addresses. So I eliminate any way in which they could say it’s impossible (when their actual delivery attempt rate was 1 in 3 or even 1 in 4 of deliveries they claimed to have tried to make - this for La Poste, Chronopost, UPS, and subcontractors local and from too far away).
They rely on most people being out at work all day to make these lies stick. Unfortunately most of the time I’ve been able to state I waited all day 0800-1900, say, within sight and sound of the gate and they did not attempt a claimed delivery.
I’m also very pleasant when they do arrive.
