Delivery option unsatisfactory

I still have not received my delivery. Delivery was attempted but no-one was there to sign for it. I requested redelivery with no signature required but was advised this was not possible because of sender instructions. I have now requested delivery to my workplace, which is not ideal. Can you please provide an option when purchasing for the courier to leave the package without signature? Many thanks
