Is Royal Mail good, bad or indifferent to your address?

Postby AnnetteandBen » Fri Jun 13, 2008 7:26 pm

Thought it might be handy to know what your postal service is like.

Generally I would have to say my post is not very good, sometimes taking a week for a 1st class letter, but sometimes the next day. And I don't get a delivery until about 11 - 12.

So for a parcel it is best for it to try and arrive on a Saturday or Monday, if I get a missed you card on a tuesday, I could collect it on Wednesday, If it comes the day before the fairy, then I would be later getting to the meet as the sorting office is in the opposite direction to the tube station - but would be a possibilty as it is fluffy post after all.

Well our post doesn't arrive until after midday but generally we seem to get things when we should. I have been out when the postie has been most days this week but as I don't work at the moment, collecting from the depot isn't too much of a problem :D

Ours comes sometime around 11-12ish. Sometimes we don't get any for days and then a few days later the poor old postie is weighted down with letters and stuff.

Too much junk mail too :(

My post never arrives before 11 but is fairly good. First class arrives the next day and second 2-3 days after it has been posted. In the past year I have had two parcels go missing though. :evil:

I would say the post is pretty slow at the moment - I sent 6 things 1st class one day last week and only one of them arrived the next day :shock: A couple took 3 days!

It really varies, some things coming from the UK arrive in only 1 or 2 days, some take 2 or 3 weeks :roll: and it appears to be totally unpredictable, just depends how lazy the An Post men are being as to whether they put any haste on it.
