Not where I live they don't ,it depends upon the size of the parcel as they sometimes come in a van.

Surface Pro-sized device including a keyboard. Nice to know that, hoping it will arrive today since it was sent on Monday 1st Class!

As deb8z says, depends on the size. If the postman can carry it then it comes with the letters, if not then its brought separately in a van.

Sometimes signed for parcels take longer to arrive,I've no idea why but I've noticed it a lot when I've been checking my receipts.

Ah ok. I've got a collection with ParcelForce today so I hope it will come then since ParcelForce is basically Royal Mail.

Yes they are but Parcel Force do not deliver royal mail items and post men do not deliver parcel force.

Parcel Force is not Royal Mail. They are a totally separate entity only joined by the fact they collect from the Post Office.

I'm not sure whether the OP is sending a parcel or expecting a parcel,or both !

Strange, my postman delivered a Parcel Force package to me only a few days ago.

With regards to the original question, from experience it can come by either. Normally it depends upon the size but not always.
