    I strongly suggest you to change the delivery company. I feel quite lucky having received the item, since the carrier left the package outdoor, placed on a low wall next to my door.

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Our delivery companies are GLS and DHL. We can only respond to our work, which is, as you can see from the feedbacks left by hundreds of satisfied Clients, at the top. Your feedback is unjustified as it affects our company due to the negligence of a single carrier.

    GLS, as many other carriers, has removed the obligation to sign the delivery. This does not mean that they have to behave as they did with you. If, however, unfortunately happens, it is certainly not our fault. What we can do, and what we will do, is to report the incident to the GLS headquarters in your area.

    Feedback is a very effective and powerful tool, but as such it should be used with intelligence and discernment. Leave a neutral feedback because a transporter, who is not part of our company, has made a mistake, it's like making a bad review to a restaurant because you did not find a parking space nearby.

    Sincerely

    Stefano Fortunati
    Commercial Manager
    Copernicum Group
