Re: Online SIM delivery may be longer than usual until Canada Post rotating strike has ended

It's a crown corporation without support from the crown.  While it's owned by the government, the government doesn't manage it nor fund it in any sense, so it works as if it was a private company (with the exception of UPU obligations).

...They make a ton of money, .."

Enough that the president's position historically gets like a million $ yrly in bonus $ .

~ For what ? - yrly  postage hikes,  layoffs of frontline staff,  resulting in 'sketchy'  service . . . . . 

 

"..it’s a privately run company..."  eh ?

Crown Corporation !  IF the numbers reported in this Wiki' posting are even half correct,  they should not be receiving any taxpayers $.

@slash407,it's a rotating postal strike, so technically everywhere is effected, just a matter of when that areas turn comes up.  But I've heard with these rotations a standard 3-5 business days delivery can now take as long as 2-3 weeks.

@Brooke_C thanks for the heads up, because I'm sure a lot of people don't realize how this rotating strike can really delay product delivery by even weeks.  

 

To be honest with the amount of retail locations someone can get a PM Sim now, I'm not sure why people still order them online (besides the few Walmarts that like to be difficult).  But I understand those few areas that don't have close retail locations.  But even then I'd still take a 20-30 minute drive to get a SIM at a Walmart (and at the same time do my grocery and regular shopping), than have to wait days, or now even weeks because of the strike.  Just pick it up and activate the same day.  No need to wait and then potentially miss out on expiring "promotions".

What happens to orders that have been already placed? Can they be cancelled/refunded?

@Poogzley

Generally speaking, no refunds on online SIM card orders, but this might be a special situation.  You can contact moderator with your order number to find out.

For all we know, Public Mobile has started using other shipping services.  If there was a full-blown complete Canada Post work stoppage, I can't see Public Mobile just shutting down the online sim card store.  We know that most times, other companies charge more (often much, much more) than Canada Post, but I'm certain Public Mobile loses money on sim card shipments/sales anyway.  I realize that Public Mobile/Telus would get a huge discounts from Canada Post, but Xpresspost and Canada Post Priority services aren't cheap.

Never?  Are you using a PO Box? 

 

If you've never had a package properly delivered by Purolator, there's likely something that's making your address for them difficult to find.  Companies don't just deliberately mess up your deliveries.  And if it's been happening for extended periods of time with Purolator, they've more than likely rotated different delivery drivers for your area.  Anyone can make a mistake but if it's all the time, there could be an underlying issues causing that.  I've never had problems with Purolator, and very few with Canada Post, or any other carrier for that matter.

 

I know that people often do not properly address packages and recepients often don't know how to properly provide an address when there are multiple unit numbers at one speicfic street number address.  For example, near me, there was a brand new group of townhouses built, and the builders attached street numbers on walls of these houses in the manner of "22-1, 22-2, and 22-3 Fake Street).  Problem is, that is wrong (if formatting an address like that, unit number must always be before  the "-".  If someone or a company actually addresses a package in the incorrect manner like that, the packages would actually get delivered to 1 Fake Street instead of 22 Fake Street, even if the shipping company knows that a mistake was made on the label (legal requirements).
