Ordering from HMV

21
Found 14th Dec 2010
I ordered something from HMV and it was dispatched on the 1st. Do things normaly take this long from there? Just I haven't ordered from them before. Thanks

I find them excellent linda-they have had weather problems like everyone but despatched on the first I would have expected you to have it by now. I have never had an item take longer than 5 days-would give them a call.

i chased them up the other day and you have to wait 14 days...it arrived the same day!
The guy said if it doesn't arrive I could reserve instore in time for Christmas...he said delivery was slow at this time due to weather!

Received a DVD yesterday that was despatched on the 5th, yet another DVD also despatched on the 5th arrived within 3 days.
It does vary, but yours seems a long time.

i ordered on the 4th and it came today.

its from jersey aswell

Thanks for that. I know they are based in Guernsey so I thought it might take sometime.
Do you know which delivery service they use?

It's due to the weather.

Royal mail have rather a large backlog at the moment due to the snow (and them piling up parcels in their sorting offices and not dealing with them but instead dealing with the new stuff) but they are gradually getting through it. Doens't stop it being bloody annoying though!

I was shocked yesterday as my inception set turned up and it was only ordered on thursday. Must be the fastest ever for me from hmv.

usually royal mail they use-if I remember rightly they once used home delivery network for a full rockband set to me so they may use them for larger items but anytime its been a single dvd or bluray its been the postie.

I know someone who works in the post office sorting offices as a manager or whatever they call them there, and he states that most of the smaller delivery companies are all using the royal mail network because they just can't get the staff and people out to the smaller places. So the royal mail is taking more strain.

I had the Inception Blu Ray brief case pack arrive last week, it took 8 days from the HMV email to getting to the door !

I order a boxset on Sat, it states it was dispatched on Sunday and not arrived as yet. Im expecting it to arrive maybe on Wed's

I ordered stuff on 6th Dec which was despatched on 7th but no sign yet. Not worried at the moment because of all the delays and HMV are usually pretty good so will just hang on for now - headless chicken syndrome will kick in next week if that along with the other 20 parcels I am waiting on don't arrive though.

Just got an item delivered today that was dispatched on the 2nd so there is a backlog

(_;) something called christmas that slows down deliveries...just have to be cool about it

lol if only it was just Christmas that was slowing it down - we're still couple of feet in snow up here. Only just started getting (some) deliveries last week after a week of absolutely nothing. Now online shops are not delivering to Scotland because of the backlog so any new orders will be after the year so that they can try and deliver previous orders folk have made. Time will tell if they can manage that. Hope so!

X) Much as I love Liverpool I'll pass thanks! Haven't been there for about 20 years mind you but loved it - especially posing outside Anfield. There's more snow on the way so hope you're lucky enough to miss it again.
