BB Bastard is done with Canada Post. You're going to be seeing a whole new online store and an entirely new shipping strategy very shortly.

Agreed, depending on the length of the strike, I see a few scabs in the future.

Canada Post has it's place. They aren't the cheapest or the most efficient but I'll still continue to use them for certain things.

One thing I have to say for Canada Post over the competitor is that they have pickup locations everywhere! In the larger cities, there should be an outlet within walking distance of your home. All our residential shipments are CP unless otherwise requested by the customer. There are no options on our web site for other couriers even though we deal with Canpar, UPS/DHL (domestic and international) and a local same day courier.

Everything we ship requires a signature. With Canada Post it's about $1 (or $1.50 can't remember) that we apply to every package. The problem with the other companies is that if there is no one to sign for the package, it gets returned to the depot which for the most part are far and few between. There have been instances where customers weren't home for the delivery and had to travel further to get to the Canpar pickup location than they would have to if they had just picked it up from us directly.

Not all couriers will make 2nd attempts at a delivery, and if they say they do, then they fake it! Canada Post use to and I hated it as it delayed me getting my goods by another day. Currently with their system, I can track it and go pick it up at the outlet on my way home without even getting the missed delivery pickup card first.

Personally I can't remember having a problem with CP in recent memory.

However, DHL is utter nonsense.

Ordered some items from WPG. According to the online log at DHL.ca they have been to my home address 3 times (Mon, Tues, Wed). According to WPG they have been twice (Tues, Wed). According to DHL customer service they only deliver 2 times. According to the single delivery notice left on my front lawn the "final" attempt was yesterday.

Yesterday afternoon after finding the delivery slip I used their website to redirect the package to my work. I also left a signed agreement to leave to the package on my doorstep in case the redirection didn't occur. According to their customer service the redirection was never done. Courier probably just slowed by my house two out of three times and saw no cars in our driveway and merrliy went on to another address.

Guess I'll be picking it up at their office in Waterloo. Hopefully the package is there.

Right now I hate CanadaPost. I have 3 packages waiting for delivery....

But i will continue to use it . Like Coachster says, I can pick up my package by only 5 minutes or walk. And by 5 mins with my car, there is like 2 others pick up point I can use...

With Fedex. it's ~30 minutes car ride, 30 with Purolator too and I can't imagine how far is UPS, maybe 45mins car ride or more. So if I miss every delevery attemp because i'm working between 8Am and 5pm, like almost everyone.... I don't want to spend 10$ in gas for a 15 $ worth of shipping or 50$ package value....
