I work for royal mail as a postman, Thought I would let you know how things work our end.

 

Any post for the day will arrive at the office about 5am. All post is then sorted and delivered without fail. nothing is ever left behind, if it is we either get a call to go back and get it or someone else takes it out and delivers it.

 

If say you are worried that you GTA is misplaced in the van and it turns up at the end of the walk or something like that, it will still be delivered (we would get in alot of trouble for taking it back to the office).

 

sometimes say a letter that we all know would go straight in the bin such as an advertisment for new sofa may get taken back, but nothing more then that, and besides things like that happening are very rare.

 

My brother works in the sorting office, he is there now, I will ask him when he is back to see if they had a big volume of 'ps3/xbox' shaped parcels today :santa:

Yes, Royal mail postmen/women will simply deliver anything they have, irrelevent of release dates (how are we meant to know what is in the box)

 

I dont have much info on how the sorting office side of things work however. hopefully my bro can shed some light. will keep people updated. I think even if dispatched today, probably wouldnt get to sorting office until overnight.

I did find a copy addressed to you, just loading it up now :lol:

You sir, are a saint. Much love. Nothing worse than sitting patiently waiting for the postman, or postlady in my street, to arrive with a package.

Well my brother just got back, Said he didnt see any increase in video games parcels.

 

Does not really change anything though as i would imagine any dispatched today wouldnt have reached the depot's yet.

 

still hopefull for a monday delivery.

Well then, how does Royal Mail managed to lose my copy of Gears Of War 2? I ordered it in 2009 and it never arrived. Atleast I got refunded.

So if Game dispatch my copy on Monday, is there a good chance I will get it Tuesday? I live in the country and get my post by a van.

Yes, I would say 95 percent of orders dispatched first class on monday would arrive on tuesday. You being in the country will have no effect on the day you recieve it. (unless say you live in remote highlands or something)

Oh yeah, could you clarify this for me?

 

Right, I ordered the Special Edition from GAME for £55. It's coming via Royal Mail first class. Does this mean it'll just be pushed through my letterbox or will I have to sign for it?

First class will just go straight through.

 

Recorded will need signing, as will special before 1pm.

This would be an annoyance for me if I was a customer. If your item is registered (or recorded) then you will need to sign for it.

 

Be home or you won't get it until (maybe) the next day!

 

Most high value items are sent this way but this would be down to GAME's policy, rather than Royal Mail.

Just a tip, most rounds finish between 1 and 3, If you get a card left saying sorry you where out etc (in general not just GTA) ring the office where the postman is from and ask them if they can redeliver before they get back to office.

 

Ive had calls from the office saying can you head to this address on your way back as they are now home. its not an issue really as long as we get the call before we get back to office. also this is just a gesture the postman is under no obligation to re deliver

What a nice postman!

 

Also. If you go chasing the postie around his round after he has attempted to deliver the game, take the red card with you...(He knocked but you didn't hear......it was NOT that he hadn't knocked...)

Haha thanks. 3 hurdels your game has to get over.

 

The company you order from. The sorting office, the delivery office.

 

Just thought I would settle peoples nerves about the 3rd and last hurdle.

Do I have to sign for a first class delivery? I'm gonna be in college from 11am. Also its given me the option to track the package on amazon, so does that mean its a recorded delivery too? I'm so confused lol
