Neil Adams, from Hertfordshire, caught a Yodel delivery driver CCTV hurling a package 50ft across a garden instead of using an unlocked gate.
The delivery driver can be seen approaching the wooden gate in the back garden before hurling the package across the garden.
The package hits the wall of the house with force and slides to the ground before the delivery man takes off.
He told Mail Online: 'Thankfully the package only contained a Nike hoody that I’d ordered for my daughter. My new phone was due to be delivered the same day so I panicked for a second when my wife rang me to tell me what had happened.
'I was more annoyed than anything. My wife was stood in the kitchen and got a fright when the package hit the wall above the window and then dropped down.'
A Yodel spokesperson said: 'We are reaching out to Neil Adams to apologise. The safe delivery of parcels is our absolute priority and we are disappointed to see this courier breaking our strict protocols.
