What time do Royal Mail deliver upto?

So I received my shiny new Macbook via UPS but I am due another parcel from the Apple store. It was dispatched via "Syncreon Post" on the 12th and is due for delivery today - no estimated but a solid delivery date of today.

Now after a few google searches it turns out my parcel was being handled via UKMail and at 9:30 this morning was handed over to Royal Mail for delivery, which I suspect means it's a Parcel+ delivery (no real idea). My question is, what time can they deliver upto and is it actually coming via Royal Mail or Parcelforce.

I'm kinda annoyed as I've had to wait in all day and yet to have anything. The Syncreon 360 Tracker just states it's last status was "Tendered for Delivery".

Thanks.

Ive had things via Royal Mail (parcels/signed for) delivered at 7pm, not sure if its dependant on your area etc.. Normally if we have standard post its usually here by 5pm. Not sure of that helps, maybe give your depot a call if you can get through to them?

We've had stuff delivered from Royal Mail as late as 6:30pm

summer is considered very quiet by RM when they try to cut overtime down to nothing if possible, so shouldn't be later than 3-30/4pm
I'd guess it'll not be RM, not today anyway, as above "dependant on your area"

Thanks for the replies. Quite frustrated as I've had to stay in all day. I'll give it a few more hours or so.

I'm pretty sure that Royal Mail is the most hated company. I really do hate them with a passion.

If it was handed over to Royal Mail for delivery at 9:30 this morning, it will not be delivered today - anything due for delivery today should have been booked in yesterday. Try tomorrow.

Yes turns out you're right.

Turns out as per usual Royal f***ing Mail can't even give a proper b***ard delivery date. I rang Apple and it turns RM gave them a wrong delivery date, Apple owned up and gave me £20 credit which was a nice gesture. Honestly, I would love to smack the guy who owns Royal Mail. It's my most hated company anyway. Makes my p*ss boil big time.

You got lied to. I could go in to the ins and outs of it, but it sounds like you hate Royal Mail regardless.

i partially own royal mail, pm me a neutral meet and give it a whirl

unless a service as been selected by you for apple to deliver i.e special, tracked then expect it as a standard parcel, if you paid for that service then claim it back off apple!
RM don't give exact delivery dates unless paid for, which i suspect apple didn't do by coughing up £20, but they're whiter than white eh!

It is Royal Mail I hate. They were the ones who gave the delivery date to Apple. Apple offered compensation which I'm happy with.

Hehe Down the back alley at the back of Greggs?

On a positive note, it came this morning. Arrived via the Red van so overall I am happy now. Thanks for all the comments !

is it still royal mails fault even though (acc to you) it was sent via "Syncreon Post" then/or "UKMail" and then the diabolical royal mail parcel+ service that doesn't exist took hold days after and did that last leg of the journey?
shocking service from royal mail eh!

I'm just going off what Apple told me. They told me Royal Mail was to blame as they gave them an incorrect date. Therefore, I do blame RM. I hate them with a passion.

can you please take your blinkers off for a minute.
apple, they never lie do they, they even pay £20 when they know they're right?
does that not seem suspect?
they gave you a couriers details, which linked to another courier before the last courier (RM) delivered it, in other words it would have been 2-3 days before it entered RM nevermind the postmans van!

Royal Mail didn't give them a date. They lied and then gave you £20 to buy some more of their overpriced tat to keep you quiet.
