I posted an item last week via first class recorded, It still hasnt arrived and the track and trace states that 'Item is being progressed through our network for delivery'

I contacted them today and they advised that there was a backlog and due to the weather they arent able to deliver to some places.

What else can i do? Im planning on going into the branch tomorrow but not sure if theres anything else i can do.

Thanks

i would guess nothing it will have to run its course in the delivery system, I got a back log of post today about 20 items! it will get through soon enough i should imagine.

Whats the point of going to your local PO?First class does not have a guaranteed delivery time on it(even recorded)all you can do is wait,i have had this with a few ebay items i have posted,one took 15 days to get about 40 miles away!!that was first class recorded,your wasting your time going into the PO tomorrow as they cant do anything.

the royal mail tracking is useless. Sent an item off before christmas, it was delivered before christmas day. Checked the tracking number yesterday and it still says being progressed through network

Same here. Your item might have been delivered already. With first class recorded they don;t seem to give any importance to updating the delivery info. They do it promptly for special delivery though. Don't worry. Call the person if you can to find out if its delivered already.

1st class recorded delivery doesnt necessarily mean you will receive the item next day or two,just means you can track and trace it in the system.special delivery is the only way to get guaranteed next day del.plus all delivery offices are experiencing back logs at the mo.just hold tight.,it will turn up.:thumbsup:

Unfortunately there's not a lot that can be done about it, but what did you expect with the weather ? over the past week the country has come to a complete stand still.

I guess you'll have to stay patient, as stated above Recorded doesn't mean it'll be delivered the next day. If you wanted that then you should have sent it via Special Delivery...

It's definitely been delivered. They should update their system.

I have the same problem. I sent an ebay item last week and it's still being progressed for delivery.

I've e-mailed the buyer a few times but they haven't replied and Paypal are holding the funds because I have low feedback :x

The item has probably been delivered as sometimes they don't update it to 'delivered'.

I remember why I stay away from ebay now!
