I generally send out low value items, sometimes some of which fit through a standard letter box via Royal Mail - Recorded Delivery to ensure the item is handed over with the recipients signature.
I've noticed small envelopes sent Recorded are just being chucked through the letter box like regular post, hence the tracking system showing the item as "On It's Way".
Is there any way around this apart from paying Special Delivery?
Has anyone had the same problem and got around the matter with items that can fit through the letterbox?
Would a sticker of a note to the Postman do the trick or are they too busy to notice the note and continue posting without a signature?
Thanks in advance.
