I run a small business from home. Sell on Ebay and Amazon.

This answer was rated:

Hi I run a small business from home. Sell on Ebay and Amazon. I am registered for tax and vat and everything is legitimate. However I have couriers coming to my house to drop of goods I have purchased. They park outside my house and are only there for a couple of minutes. But there is a nightmare family across the road that are complaining about them. Is there anything they can do. Many thanks Louise
Hello Louise my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
How many do you get a day?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

On average two per day Monday to Friday

Two a day is not unreasonable, I thought you were going to say over 10. Just two appears fine, no difference from having a postman and royal mail van come to see you.
As long as its not say 6am or anything I can not see what they can do. They could try and take you to Court for nuisance but they would have to show what you are doing is so unreasonable - I do not think it is.
2 couriers a day is not excessive in my view.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thank you so much they are a living nightmare they have a double drive, not sure if it is legal but park there cars on the road anyway. I parked my car on the road the other day not causing an obstruction or anything but when they came home they wanted to park there and they were really aggressive. I can stand up to myself but she has started really watching everything we were doing in the house even my children's coming and goings. So it's a bit unsettling. She was at the window this morning when the courier arrived with her pen and paper, so imagine she was writing down his details. He was parked outside my house though and not causing an obstruction. Many thanks for your help xx

Indeed I can imagine, some people just need to get on with their lives.
