Are you ready to pay double the delivery price for better service and working conditions?
Lets take a somewhat different approach: default delivery to a logistics station strategically placed at a crossing of high volume public transport and easy car access.
Taking a slight detour after work or during conveniently scheduled activities would easily beat chasing down some random person in the neighborhood, driving to some backwater location or taking a day off to avoid the former troubles without certainty it will actually work.
At the current state of affairs not having your package delivered could even be offered as a premium service.
On the upside - the parcel services here do their best to keep brick and mortar stores alive.
