Royal Fail.


Recommended Posts

Just been to the post office to send some Ethirteen bars to someone who won the auction on Ebay.

Boxed up nice and light 450 gram.

I was astounded at the fact they wanted £16 to send them :S.

Seems Dick Turpin is in charge of Royal Mail theae days. Needless to say I wasn't paying £16 to send a product which sold for £20.

I'm not tight but that to me is taking the absolute urine.

Yeah it's down to the length of them, I've always used Hermes for bars

Still a bit of a piss take to be honest. No wonder they're in such a mess financially due to couriers taking the business away from them. When I bought some bars online from a reputable bike company they only charged £5 p&p and that was via Royal Fail. Maybe they just charge us normal people more and the businesses who pay for a Royal Mail account less. 

Good shout on Hermes though thank you.

I'll be using them next time and not even consider Royal Fail.

That's the problem... its stupid, but computer says no. I feel your frustration, we have the same issues!

As others have said, try a courier or site like InterParcel.

Yes I won't be bothering with Dick Turpin and his Royal Mail for parcels anymore due to his fascist views on rectangular parcels :rolleyes:
