I HATE it when couriers do that. Phone them back and ask them to contact the driver and tell you what colour your front door was. He may go the safe route and guess white (if u have white), but it'll more than likely [email protected] him up a bit.

If he can't guess correctly tell them that the contents are extremely important for a business trip you are going on tomorrow and you don't believe he attempted to deliver.

Also threaten to contact eBuyer to complain about the delivery companies rubbish service & lies. eBuyer have a very close relationship with Citylink from what I've seen and if eBuyer say jump, Citylink often do.

Worth a shot

Down in Portsmouth it was a normal thing to see a postie walking around with a stack of red slips.

I also caught one quietly putting a card through my letterbox. He nearly shat himself when i opened the door on him. I saw another literally running around the corner after posting a card at my house.

Glad you got it I've ordered a gfx card of ebuyer before and i have to get it delivered between 6.00-7.30am (Due to work and no-one being in) and it arrived at 7.50

I dont like City Link only company i've never had a probelm with is UPS. (Plus they sent me loads of stress things last time )
