I have just been quoted by a company that postage to Shetland of a bog-standard cardboard box (with animal vitamins in a 2kg tub) as being £10 non-signed for, Royal Mail. Apparently being in Shetland is more expensive. The old Highland & Islands adage. Is this true? Last month the company charged £3.95 for exactly the same item. I need evidence to show them that postage to the Highlands & Islands is exactly the same as it is considered part of the UK by Royal Mail and/or Parcelforce.
You may have heard on the news the the government is planning to sell of the Royal Mail. One consequence of this could be that the universal service it provides will come to an end. You may not able to post something from Shetland to the other end of the UK for the same price as sending between addresses on the mainland . I was going to suggest that we all buy shares so that we can have some small influence on the privatiased company's conduct but I see the minimum investment is Â£750. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24058989
Just wondering if anyone knows whats going on with the post? I had mail sent tuesday morning via next day delivery and its still not here, does anyone know if the plane hasn't landed with the post, or is anyone else having the same problem, I've been told that next day means 48hrs for shetland - post has been today but still not gotten the mail I am expecting.
