The Delivery Horror Show

To celebrate the countdown to Halloween, we’re asking you to recount your most grim and ghastly tales of delivery disaster!

The web is jam packed with bloodcurdling horror stories – from the mysterious cards that arrive through the letterbox without any warning to packages that arrive as if mauled by unknown fiends.  A quick social search of traditional delivery networks gives a harrowing view into an evil underbelly of customer dissatisfaction. Opinion aggregator Amplicate shows that out of 4,844 online comments mentioning the four largest UK couriers, 72% were classified as ‘hate’ comments!  We want to dive a little deeper and hear exactly what it is that makes you squirm in your sleep…

To enter the competition, all you need to do is ‘like’ Shutl on Facebook and post a video or photo (or link to a video or photo) onto our wall of the delivery nightmare that really makes your blood run cold.  There’s £100 of Argos vouchers up for grabs, with the prize going to the entry with the most ‘likes’ at 12pm on Monday 31st October*… so get your friends involved!

*In the event of a draw, Shutl reserves the right to pick the winner, with bonus points going to the entry that makes us laugh the most.
