Missing a online order, search your address on Google Maps for erriors

If you are missing a online order, search your address on Google maps for directions to see were it sent the delivery driver ,

I recently had a order delivered to a wrong address because the driver used Google maps, I live in building with Apartment numbers and used Canada Post approved mentioned for my address with the Apartment numbers first and a hyphen then the street name. It seems that some inexperience couriers don't know that this is the way it's done and enter the address with the Apartment numbers first which leads to wrong directions.

eg ;

4-1001 Hyman in Dollard des Ormeaux, Qc. will send the driver to 4 Hyman . check out the link below

https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... es+Ormeaux

....

How do I address letters and parcels

Google maps can return hilarious errors. I once used it to plot cycling directions between Richmond and Delta. It directed me to take the Ladner Ferry, which last sailed in 1959!
Try addressing this like this: 1001 Rue Hyman, Apt 4

It's interesting that the behavior isn't consistent on Google Maps.

4-1001 Hyman shows house number 4
801-453 W 12th shows the address at 801 W 12th...same error as yours
But 1300-1111 W Georgia actually shows the correct building at 1111 W Georgia, so not consistent

This! 1001 Rue Hyman, Apt 4

I began writing my address like this when I learned of this google error 5 or so years ago
