I've always found that the majority of SD items even thought the post office says monday delivery will arrive on saturday,just keep your fingers crossed :)
They dont usually come with the normal post here either,they always arrive by van regardless of size

Unlikely, unless you paid the premium for a Saturday delivery. Stranger things have happened though!

it depends what it is, If it is a letter or something small it would have come with the postie

Anything a bit bigger, like a mobile phone for instance, will come on a van.

Timewise could be anything upto 1pm

I knew there was a chance it wouldn't arrive on a saturday and I was wondering seeing as my letters arrived that it would indeed come on monday.

Dont think that it shows up to be honest, i could be wrong but it only shows after its been attempted delivery and then re scanned into the system
#17
Does this mean you'll have a box now then Met? :p

Usually nothing shows for Special D online until they attempt delivery (whether successful or not), if it was recorded it would probably say "out for delivery" or something like that.

Next working day delivery so will arrive on monday. Guess that does mean special delivery and that's what I requested?

Even if it was recorded would I still get it in a van? and even if my letters have been delivered?

do you think the postman walks round with a ps3 in his bag?:w00t::w00t:
#21
Special deliverys normally get sent in the van now as the posties leave the sorting office later. With the delivery span starting later they need to make sure it gets there before 1 (or 9 depending on the service) If it had been sent recorded it would still be by van because of the size

Right? LOL but I thought they might deliver the letters with the ps3.

Not entirely true, Royal Mail dont care about customer services anymore, even though Specials have beore 1pm on them, they don't care if a postman gets there after 2, not at my office anyway

Royal Mail is an absolute rubbish company now. Apart from that £400 bonus I got last week of course

Sent an item before and it came up as 1:08pm special delivery and they wouldn't refund me saying the work trail says 10:17?

My OH is a postman, we liked the bonus too! Though he should have got a load for the election households as well which didn't turn up

What do you think of this man and van thing they have been trialing?

Man and van thing what's that? :oops:
#30
They are, or were, thinking of sending out two posties with a van containing all the letters and packets for two walks and getting them to work it together. I guess they figure it would be cheaper in the long run.

Sounds rubbish, not doing anything like that up here yet, It's only a matter of time before Tnt takes over the business anyway. Strikes are on the horizon
