Canada Post / no po - returned to sender

1 Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada Review updated:

Ordered a package from the US on Marc 12/09. It was shipped by USPS-Int until it reached Canada - where it was then handled by Canada-Post.

The package arrived in town here, but was "returned to sender" immediately only on account of having no pob number included in the address.

In a town of just over 5400, you'd think that "they" could've at least had the "consideration and courtesy" to look up the street number and name in their databases, instead of just putting it back on the truck and returning it back to the sender in California. They probably would have located the pob number for it if they were decent enough to check. They didn't even attempt to make delivery.

Their "NO PO - RETURN TO SENDER" policy is a very irritating, inconsiderate, thoughtless and just plain LAZY way of managing parcels for delivery to Northern BC recipients.

    unfortunately it is not their jobs to double check the senders addresses, that is their responsibility to make sure it is correct

    If you go to the same Postal outlet all the time, my guess is they don't like you. It seems like too small a town for that to really happen. I've worked alot of retail/service jobs- and the nasty customers get nasty treatment- maybe not to your face-but you'll get it! So cheer up, take the PO girls a coffee tomorrow and I bet this won't happen ever again.
