“Deliver us from evil”

published 07/05/2011

Royal protection

Slow

The Central Post Office in Northampton is now a Costcutter, only a window in the corner where you can do familiar post offices things like buying stamps and sending parcels remaining. With plans to close 3000 more smaller and rural Post Offices it looks like the end for royal protected mail...

Some mail lost or tampered with!!!

This is to help you with a few pointers on Royal Mail and its staff from someone that works in the network. First of all a day in the life of a postman: A postman starts his day at half five in the morning when he arrives at work the goes onto whats called group sorting where he sorts all mail...

My sweet young postgirl, they deliver most days

Lost mail, customer services

OK, so I know it's easy to have a go at Royal Mail, the daily newspapers do it constantly but to be honest they do manage to deliver my mail most days in rain, snow & sunshine. However two little true stories do make you look at Royal Mail through a different light. This time last year over a...

“Ebays best friend”

published 18/09/2005

fast delivery times, friendly postmen

items get lost/stolen

Being an avid eBay seller means that I have to visit the post office everyday or so to send my items off to their buyers. I need a reliable service that will get my parcels safe and sound to their destination. Royal Mail provides this service - but not 100% of the time. WHEN DID ROYAL MAIL START...

If there’s one thing that we’re REALLY good at in this country, then it must surely be criticising things. If you mention the words Royal and Mail in the same sentence to the average Briton, you will be sure of a vociferous reply along the lines of, “Don’t talk to me about...

important service

decline in standards

Ever since I was a kid,many,many years ago I have always been interested in writing and receiving letters.As a child/teenager I had many pen friends all over the world.This interest in the postal service has given me, I feel, a pretty good background when commenting on the decline of the service...

Convenient and easy to use

No guarentee your item will arrive

I work for a small to medium sized company, which like many businesses these days relies on the postal service to deliver letters and small packages around the UK on a daily basis. Many of these items need to arrive the following day and since some are very light, e.g. tender documents we have...

In this age of advanced communication its amazing really how much we rely on Royal Mail as one of our primary communication tools. Yes I have Internet access, multiple email accounts, a home telephone, a work telephone and a mobile phone but still I often communicate by post, always using the...

Print Postage Online

Currently On Strike

Royal Mail is the UK's number one postal service, infact many people aren't even aware that other postal companies even exist. So you'd expect them to be pretty good at what they do, to fight of all the competition? Well actually no, there service is pretty poor at times. Unfortunately we are...

Collect your parcel

Outside waiting, No time given, Bad opening hours

The number of reviews complaining about the service Royal Mail provides probably largely outnumbers the amount of reviews praising the service. However that’s life. Unfortunately my shortish review will only add to the number of problems Royal Mail appears to be having with its customer service...

I never used to fault the Royal Mail. They seemed a reliable service, and my post would always arrive on time. However, in the past few months, I have seen a vast decline in their service. I thought I would come on here and share to you all the bad experiences that me and my Fiancé are currently...

“Peace of mind.”

Next day by noon.

None for us.

In the course of my wife`s business over the past few years, she has had to send between 1 and 6 Special Delivery items by Royal Mail every week. Not one has gone astray or failed to reach it`s destination by the specified guaranteed delivery date! I know that many people have had problems with...

Nationwide service

Delivery service very poor

Firstly, I would like to advise people that during the run up to Christmas, Royal Mail were having delivery problems in the Bristol area, returning items to it's depot due to not being able to deliver items due to the fact that they were unable to get answers at the relevant addresses to be able...

Items being lost or stolen, harsh employers

If you’re looking for any humour in this opinion, you won’t find it. I am not in a laughing mood. In fact, I am very angry. Let me explain… It is my daughter’s 5th birthday tomorrow and as most of my family live 180 miles away, they have to send cards, money and vouchers...

You cannot believe in 'Special Delivery'

As a virgin member of Ciao I decided to get something off my chest that has been a thorn in my side for months now. Here's my experience of Consignia -hiding under the banner of Royal (how much longer will her Majesty approve?) Mail. Last December I was fortunate enough to have acquired enough...
