Can't see anything too scary in them, some international large letter a bit cheaper again but the mid-weight int parcels are up quite a bit, nearly 8% in some cases.
Royal Mail 'sorry' for rising stamp price above cap.
Damn..I was hoping there'd be a price drop for online parcels over £2 Kg but no, they still have an insane jump from £2.90 to £13.75
Online parcels are already £13.75 over 2 kilos
Oh I see what you mean!
Yes, from october 2017 until early last year they brought the prices for parcels up to 5Kg down to £8.79 for a few months. Still expensive but nowhere near as high as it is now (and previously).
Yes, I remember taking advantage of that offer. I'm back to using Collect+ or MyHermes for larger stuff.
I often see folk in front of me at the PO having it explained that a few extra grammes is costing them over a tenner.
Even an up to 3kg band would help, I don't often see books above 3kg but get the odd 2.2kg sort of weight.
The shop my PO is in would be a collection point for one of the parcel companies if it didn't have a PO in it, I assume there's something in the contract that means they're not allowed to.
I've heard the people working in the PO saying they use the other services themselves when sending stuff.
"there's something in the contract that means they're not allowed to"
Correct. Which is a shame. If I use another courier I have to drive to the next village, or have it collected if it's MyHermes. The Hermes chap is really good but he calls just after 8 in the morning when I'm often still in the land of nod.
