I think youse have all been robbed by the royal mail xmas temps, failing that, youve been scammed. I bought some longnet poles off someone off here saturday, posted saturday and I got them today. I dont think they were sent any special way either cos they just got posted through the letter box.

However you post stuff, you get a cash receipt from the PO, it will have the time and date, the service used and the weight of the parcel, it won't have any address details on unless you get a proof of posting.

Either way, like anything, if it can't be proved it was posted ........ then it wasn't end of story.

Why would anyone risk posting something worth £75 without using a signed for service?

You should have insisted on RMSD for that value at this time of year, it would have cost you £5 ish extra but ........

Seventy five quid is NOT loose change, if it is then you've got too much anyway and it's quite right that someone is helping you spread it around! :laugh:

I sent a birthday card for my nephew back in September, it was sent first class recorded but I lost the receipt with tracking number on it. He never received the card until the beginning of Dec. The Royal Snail!

I just sent an air rifle on 7th, it should be there for no later than 1pm on the 8th (today) that is Royal Mail Special Delivery and cost me £24.50. Expensive, but it was seriously well packaged and the packaging will have added a lot to the cost due to weight.
I would rather that though to make sure it arrives in perfect condition with no bumps or knocks.

the book i sent before christmas was sent second class, i have the proof of posting and liz the post mistress writes the post code of the parcel on proof of posting tickets, however the lad hasnt received it, proof of posting doesnt really help other than i know ive sent it and can prove it, in the end i refunded the lads money, so even with proof of posting the cost of the book and the money he paid im still the only one out of pocket. in future the only way i will post anything is 1st class recorded delivery. even then unless you pay the extra for items with a value of over £40 you are still taking a chance.

i take it you've been in touch with the bloke you bought them off
you really should of insisted on 1st class signed for or gauranteed before 1pm next day
i know it should'nt be like that but thats the way it is
every thing i send has to be signed for and alot of the time i stand the postage
my own piece of mind that it gets there
