Yes, if I see "Pass the Parcel" on an auction, it reduces my chances of bidding.
My personal favourite is when a courier left me a card to call. I went online and organised redelivery. One day after it was due to arrive, I got another card to call, so this time I rang up and talked to an operator and organised a day for a no-signature delivery. A day after the organised day, I got another card to call. Eventually I got the package, but good lord.
That's just one example. I had similar experiences on other occasions, and redelivery was always the day AFTER the day I'd selected.
I've also had friends who have used it an not been impressed, including one where they'd organised a pickup and left the house - only to find the courier didn't collect it when they said they would and the product (crayons) spent the afternoon in the sun melting.
Fastway I only use when desperate - e.g. price. Most times it goes well for me but there have been a few moments I've been quite annoyed.
I've never once had a bad experience with CourierPost - so that is what I stick with.
