I haven't recieved any mail for tthe past couple days which is very odd, I been awaiting a Virgin media card, special delivery and recorded delivery items too.

No sight of them on my road or in Bristol !

Anyone else having problems?

same here, not too bad

They should sacked the lazy gits and give it to sombody that can do the job. 2,weeks for a first class package and mail at 3pm in central london is a joke.

well i'm waiting for 3 items posted last week from HMV and they haven't turned up as of todays post. i even rung my local office who said they were on top of deliveries so no idea where the delays are.

Doesn't seem any different to normal.

not just the mail, should have got a parcel from ups on the 8th but did not get it until the 14th. weather is effecting most deliveries.
#10
Still waiting for my Graze box from last week, and todays has not turned up either..
#11
Been very good up here - better than couriers.

Postie has been dragging his sack through the snow because road still impassable with ice.

Don't privatise Royal Mail!!!!

I sent 4 1st class recorded parcels on the 9th, and only 1 has been delivered, and 1 more tried to be delivered yesterday, Problem I have is out of those 4 parcels 1 was something I sold on here and its still not turned up! :(
#13
Brilliant where I am in Birmingham, everything posted has got there in time and everything ordered has come in the timescales expected.

Normal mail been arriving every day now the postie can get through the snow - but didn't get any post for about 10 days last week. Slowly getting parcels delivered too by the Royal Mail van plus different couriers.
#21
just noticed that they've taken back their "special delivery gurantee" until they can confirm the fact they can get it next day delivered..
I wonder if post office people mention this?

I swearr if i don't get any mail tomorrow, im going to headbutt the next royal mail van i see

Having sold a fair bit on ebay recently I have been watching the 'arrivals' via feedback. I reckon that things sent middle of last week onwards are 'normal' service (if not better 2nd class stuff being delivered next day), but the stuff sent during the really bad weather hasn't (even though here we had no snow) - so my theory is that the royal mail are targetted on delivery times. The stuff that became backlogged was already 'out of time' whereas they can hit the targets with the new stuff, so they will only tackle backlogged mail as and when.

bundle of late parcels arrived today :D

very slow down here. 2 weeks now and i havent recieved my items
#38
I had a delivery on Monday of 1 large package (by van) and the delivery driver said there was more but he did not have room on the van. Not had anything since apart from a couple of letters this week.
Some stuff I ordered online has been 10 days so far (since it was sent), 1 item from Amazon was sent next day guaranteed via royal mail a week today, the tracking number just says when it was posted and its 'in progress'.
Starting to get worried especially for things i've ordered in the past couple of days, im now not expecting to see them before Christmas. Will be contacting the sorting office tomorrow to go and collect anything they have there for me.
I just want to say thanks to all the other delivery companies (DHL, Home Delivery Network etc) who have been delivering to me quickly.
