    Special delivery items - information needed

    How long does it take for special delivery items to track.

    The story i ordered a item from gametrain ups next working day and it hadnt arrived today so i rang them at 4.45 pm and they said they apologise it hadnt gone via ups for some reason it had gone via royal mail even thou invoice said ups so they would refund the posatge paid.

    He then gave me a tracking number and said it would be with me in 2 - 3 workings days.

    Ive just checked the tracking number and its saying its a special delivery item and not yet tracked .

    My parcel was despatched yesterday , value of approx £40 and no sign of it or tracking information update.

    anyone have this prob before with gametrain - my first time using them.

    Any info on tracked parcels ?? i thought when they were scanned they were trackable ??

    Any help appreciated

    Thank you

    Why would they say its going to take 2-3 days for delivery,special delivery is guarantee'd for next working day before 1pm?

    Sounds like they are playing for time,

    Special delivery items are tracked all the way from when received by sender to being delivered

    Special delivery are tracked immediately.

    No they're not.

    They're tracked when they reach the sorting office.

    HTH.

    Yes, and no.

    RM know where every single SD item is at every point of it's journey, from the point of the P.O receiving it at the counter. It won't appear online immediately though.

    Yes. But doesn't show to the customer until it's been scanned at the sorting office - I believe this is the answer he is looking for.

    im thinking they may have used a system called track and trace but even so thats not tracked but when i put the code in they gave me heres what it says..
