UK Special Delivery
If you have paid extra for Special Delivery and are not around to sign for your parcel, the carrier may leave it with a neighbor or in a safe place (i.e. hidden from sight and protected from the rain) if they think it is safe to do so. A calling card will be posted through your door to let you know this has been done. If the parcel can’t be left in a safe place or with a neighbor, the carrier will take it back to the local depot, and leave you a card telling you how you can pick it up.
