This Vancouver company sends hilarious missed delivery notes to shipping companies

If you’ve ever received a bogus missed delivery notice from a courier company, Vancouverite Gavin Morgan knows your pain all too well.

HeĀ decided to do something about it by starting Abney Delivers ā€”a company that sends missed delivery notices to delivery companies, just like the one below.

The premise is simple: When you receive a missed delivery notice from a delivery company, you can reach out to Abney Delivers and they will send one back to the company with a hilarious message.

Morgan said the idea came to him after too many bad experiences with UPS.

“The tipping point was one really infuriating experience where I was expecting two deliveries by them in the same week,” he told Daily Hive.

“The first one was delivered fine. The second one, the [delivery person] left a note on the system saying my address could not be found. My apartment address hadnā€™t changed, the buzzer worked, my building hadnā€™t disappeared, and to this day still hasnā€™t.”

Morgan says he was drunkenly raving about the incident to friends when it clicked: If all these delivery companies did was send missed delivery notes with bad excuses, he could do better by creating a funnier way to get back at them.

Since its inception in September 2018, the company has been serving up some witty and hilarious missed delivery notes to courier companies around Vancouver.

“The main message of Abney Delivers is that itā€™s fun to follow up on drunk ideas. Other than that, I just wanted to see how many people agree that UPS, FedEx, Purolator have terrible service, or if Iā€™m just a 31-year-old curmudgeon slowly turning into his dad,” joked Morgan.

If you’re sick of receiving bogus missed delivery notes, then you too can send your own note back to companies like UPS, Purolator, and FedEx.

All you have to do isĀ to go to the Abney Delivers websiteĀ and let them know which delivery company you want to send a note to and what message to write.

Morgan and his team (consisting of his friend named Matt) will write it out, snap a picture for Instagram, and mail it off.

The only request from Morgan is that those sending messages keep them lighthearted.

“No complaints or nasty messages, please. Funny messages preferable,” he said. “We’re in Canada gosh darn it.”
