    To be fair to royal mail I have never had 1 single special delivery not be delivered on time, look through my sales threads just on here, I use them for sales elsewhere also.
    To be honest I have had a lot worse experience with couriers. I had a whole shipment of corals from Yorkshire that were delivered by courier and every single bag (double bagged) was damaged, the poly box looked like the local rugby team had been using it for practice.
    Maybe I have just been extremely lucky.

    Agreed, perhaps if you have not already done so you could use the tracking service, the number will be on your reciept. Just a thought but if it was delivered early and no one answered ?

    have you contacted the local sorting office, normally still there this time of night, as collections from the Post Boxes are still coming in to the dept

    The upside is the postage can be claimed back and the postage cost includes insurance, so the corals can be claimed for also.

    Was'nt meant to sound that way, even if they deliver it in the next 10 minutes you are still entitled to your money back for postage cost.
    If they dont deliver it today or the buyer cant get it from the post office, then as long as RM never attempted a delivery the insurance will cover any possible losses.
    Not ideal, but better than a slap round the face with a kipper

    Some good news I've been to my local sorting office and a very nice lady has told me that it is in another sorting office about an hours drive from me.
    I have get them a call to see if I can pick it up from there.
    So I'm waiting for them to call me back!
    Fingers crossed I can get the frags tonight!!!

    you havent marked them as livestock or anything on the packaging have you? Or is his house one of those hard to find type houses?

    At least its insured and you'd sent those 88 plana colonies :D or rather 88 monile phones lol ;)
