Angry Post Office/Postal/Delivery Lackeys!

I swear they fu ck me off sometimes! I've had 3 parcels go out on different dates and they've all been posted back to me, This is AFTER I've confirmed the delivery addresses at the PO! To top it off when I double check the parcels I always make a note to put "Please Send To:"

I'm not well right now but come tomorrow I'ma raging at the PO.

Agree with this 100%!

I do a lot on Ebay and their new price structure is a joke. Had to send an oil cap this week and its now a parcel! I feel for the folk that work there as its a farce.

What about the time i posted my by-cas kit. Never to be seen nor heard tell off again.
I rung the couriers in england think it was telford and demanded to know where parcel went ,
the woman told me it hadnt got to them at all and she said it was still laying in the ware house in Belfast.
Now wait for this, target couriers DONT have a ware house in Belfast.

End up city link admitted they lost it and was last scanned at telford

Don't get me started on city link!!

We have had several issues with them; the latest being that they left the parcel on the front dour step, right in open view, and posted a card through the door saying that's where they left it!!?

Why the hell would you leave it there!!?

New sizes from Royal snail mean any item now over 61cm in length will have to be sent by a courier !

Which means they have come down from a meter & a half to that

There pricing has also gone mental & so has the prices for small parcel weights

Recorded delivery is now 1.10

So if your parcel is unsigned for & you send it via shitebay you will probably be scammed & a charge back for your convenience

Best thing to do if it's not been signed & has been delivered is to make a claim against them

I give it 18 months top before the tax payer has to bail these idiots out once again

Angry

I use PO lots with my business sending parts to customers etc, was shocked by new prices, took 3 small parcels that were always a couple of pounds to sent before the price rise....
had them checked at PO and was told they were all 9.80..... WTF.. I use a courier who collects from my business and does guaranteed next day for 9.18 inc vat... I told them I would take away, and he said so far today all of there customers had decided not to send after getting a price......

to top it all off, I sent 2 small packages, the PO checked the weight and size and put the necessary stamps on...... that week both customers complained they hadnt received the packages, one week later they had cards through the door to say there was insufficent postage paid and they had to pay 16p postage and 1.10 postage charges.... WTF....

Never using them again Courier all the way....

Rant Over.....Paul
