Ram usually arrives in a Jiffy bag via normal postie methods. Larger boxed items via CityLink and require signature. Ebuyer have a tracking system, which may keep you informed about delivery arrangements.
I purchase a number of items from Ebuyer on a monthly basis, and today received a 'normal' consignment which should have taken less than 5 working days, but as taken over 9 working days (1st time this as happened, so not very happy).
Saturday deliveries can be a problem, due to courier drivers availability and Saturday delivery workload (they ain't going to deliver, if they have 6 parcels for a mornings work!).
The postman or CityLink will not leave items with neighbours, unless there is a special in-place pre-arrangement, due to security and safeguard reasons. We have this arrangement in-place because of the amount of regular deliveries that we have.
Would also mention that I have checked with Ebuyer this morning, and there are some slight delays due to increased workloads.
