  • Royal Mail

    Does anyone know if you send a cue off with Royal Mail abroad and the cue comes back to you if you can claim back the delivery cost .

    This has happened to me twice with the same cue and besides other missing parcels i,m out of pocket to the tune of around £160 . To cap it all they had the audacity to give me a book of first class stamps as an apology .

    Does anyone know of a delivery company to use where you dont need a printer .

      You seem to have a lot of problems with Royal Mail, hotpot. If memory serves me right, think that ADR said the same sort of thing and that Royal Mail was not worth using, but he sent me a cue case last week and it came by Royal Mail.

      I have had things go missing that were sent from Germany and that was by DHL. We are sure that some of it was stolen by them, by the answers that they gave.

        As someone who works in the delivery business, a % of parcels are stolen and go missing or are damaged in transit no matter who you use, less than 1 in 1000 is a typical benchmark (but many of these are stolen by the person receiving the parcel). If you want to guarentee the best chance of this not happening, you'd use a 100% consigned service where ownership of the parcel is signed for at all stages and they're stored in locked cages around hub depots trunkers etc (can still get damaged tho). The cost of this is huge, and only used for high tech expesnive electricals for example.

        The best you can do for a reasonable price is pay for insurance and comply with all the small print, before sending the parcel, then in making a claim. Fraudulant claims are huge, so don't be surprised if they take the attitude that you're trying it on - it's your job to prove to them otherwise.

              So i bought a brand new hp printer for £36 which came with 2 black and 1 colour cartridge for free

                  royal mail are a hit and miss, you take a gamble and you know it but for cheaper things its a gamble you have to take.
