    Default Parcel sent to wrong address

    My friend in South Africa has sent me a parcel, but to my old address (even though I have given her my new one!!)
    Anyway, considering her parcels are really well thought out and special to me, would it be reasonable to contact the people at our old address for my parcel? Legally they should have either kept it unopened or returned it to sender..

    I think it's reasonable, how long ago was it sent?

    Yep that reasonable, if they haven't received it yet I'd even ask them to contact you when it arrives
    I've been living in this house for 4 years now and still contact the land lord when mail arrives for them.
    Best if luck

    If somebody contacted me and said they were expecting a parcel, I wouldn't have any qualms about passing it on. If I wasn't expecting it, I'd return to sender.

    It would have been received by now. They are an hour away but I could get FIL to pick it up or have them drop it to him, if they kept it. I don't think they have returned it, as she would have received it by now. She sent it 2 months ago.

    How well do you know them?

    If not that well, I'd say they have opened it & will say it didn't arrive.

    I hope they are honest & you get your package

    Yeah, I hate to say it, but I doubt you'll get your parcel. It's been two months to long- I'd say it's long gone.

    Good luck anyway.

    Might be worth calling up Australia Post? It might not have been delivered to the address and slip may have been given to the household. Though, it might be a bit of a long shot if it's been two months

    I recently ordered some books and got them sent to my old address, not my new address, so I called Aust Post and they called the business centre where they would be held and it turns out they were there, so I went and picked them up.
