HMV Special Delivery

Got an item despatched today by HMV via special delivery.

What are HMV's normal amount of time for an item to arrive via special delivery?
Will it come with the normal post or by van?

Cheers

Special delivery is next working day guranteed before 1pm

it's usually next day (expect Sunday - SD is not delivered on Sunday), unless you ordered late in the afternoon, then it will be 2 working days after you ordered. It will most likely arrive separately from all other mail.

next working day AFTER posting. But some companies do not dispatch immediately.

Was despatched today so maybe tomorrow but definetly tuesday?

unless it's an order for gta4 and it'll take a few days, mine was supposedly dispatched by special delivery on thursday. It still hasn't arrived and its not even recognised in the royal mail track and trace system yet.

I meant next working day FOR before 1pm on the day of delivery not the dispatch time.

Same problem for me too...when I got the original e-mail saying it had been despatched I got rather hopeful it may arrive early.
Now It seems likely it'll turn up late, seeing as Royal Mail has pretty much been denying it's existence for 4 days.

i didn't pay for special delivery, they just decided to send them all out that way at no extra cost so people would receive them on time

I bet that was the con to get the orders then.

no it wasn't, because when i pre-ordered it there was no mention of it being sent out by special delivery.

They only sent e-mails out last week to all the people who had pre-ordered it to let them know it will be sent out by special delivery in order for it to arrive on time.

I think what they have done with these orders is prepared them all for dispatch and sent out e-mails saying they are dispatched, but they won't actually send them out until tomorrow, so they arrive on tuesday

thats coz if people got GTA4 from HMV days earlier than the 29th rockstar could take them to court

peope have been jumping around saying it was put as DELIVERD on Thursday but i knew they wernt gonna get it Fri or Sat, you may get it this morning tho (Monday)

Tracking Number for GTA still not on the Royal Mail System. Ill be Gutted if it hasn't tracked tonight :cry:

Mate, the minute special deliveries arrive in a mail centre they have to be handed to a secure area and scanned into the system immediately, if it aint showing on thetrack and trace then it aint been posted yet simple. The supplier will have it sat waiting despatch.

I understand it, but have made a bigger deal of it in my head really....

Although saying that it still isn't even showing up this morning.

Mine is'nt showing as being in the system yet but It will come today, Many a time I have been given a tracking number for S.Del and it has not showed on the system but the item(s) have arrived on schedule. Fingers crossed, I'm sure it will arrive!

I hope you're right dante - I've been excited about this for too long!

Mines came, can't say i'm overly-impressed though lol

Mine came too, which was a happy surprise!

When I first started playing, it didn't seem that great either - I guess because of all the hype. As soon as you get an hour or so into it, though, everything starts slotting into place and it really ramps up the awesome-ness!
