Aramex Does it Again

Once more our lives have been fked about by the wonderful courier company Aramex. I'm really getting hacked off by these eejits. We wanted to go out this morning (like Fujeirah), but BetterArf had a call from Aramex saying that they had an important package that would be delivered to the house before 12.30 today. So we had to wait in. And of course, 12.30 has come and the package has not. BetterArf phones Aramex, and they say 'oh no, the Jebel Ali route doesn't happen till 3pm'. For goodness' sake, this company is beyond belief.

See this previous rant also.

I would certainly not use them to send anything out. All of my problems have been to do with trying to receive stuff from them.

Things aren't much better here in Cyprus either Keef - the local FedEx agent simply will not deliver letters or packages to you, even if the poor sender has spent the extra for a door-to-door service, they just call you up and tell you to come to their office and collect it. But it gets better, when you do get there you have a 50/50 chance as to whether they can find it or not ! "are you sure there's a package here for you?" they ask in all sincerity, "I think so, because you guys called me about an hour ago and told me there was", "Oh, better come back tomorrow and ask again". Yesterday we went through this proceedure hunting a very urgent letter from Limassol (a whole 70Km away!) and after getting the sender to chase it up from his end were finally told it would be in Paphos by 3 or 4 that afternoon (i.e. STILL in LIMASSOL!) - so who called us, from where,and why?
