Royal Mail - Latest Small Print

Recommended Posts

RM Pricing/Cover from 2nd April - The Small Print

Although most TSF members will be aware of the forthcoming RM price rises, other than the 6-7% in standard prices there has been precious little news/comment on RMSD and none that I have seen regarding "Signed" compensation. After thoroughly reading the latest price booklet from my local PO...

  • RMSD prices are rising by an average 70%
  • Compensation for "Signed" has been reduced from £50 to £20

Claims for loss/non-delivery of, for example, 1oz silver coins have previously been honoured by Royal Mail - cheerio to that. This is printed below the "UK Signed" title on page 6 - no bold type, underlining etc. Small print only. Free cover on International Postage remains unchanged at £50.

I'm sure that the huge hike in RMSD is, at least partially, down to the RM's continuing failure to meet its Next Day by 1pm guarantee - and subsequently being obliged to refund postage to anybody who can be arsed to claim.

In my opinion, those who was so petty to keep claiming, have got themselves to blame for all these price hike. I have stated it before that as far as I am concern, there is no other package that covers compensation up to the value of gold etc so Special delivery is used and all I care about is that it is delivered. One day later, what is the big problem. ( I bet you get idiots who have claimed because it arrived less than an hour late).  These will be the same people who will drop their tv and make a claim and then complain that insurance rises each year.

✔️ Just so. I believe "RMSD 72 hours" would be a popular service.

Did not notice that there was a choice, Need to go and have a look. Cheers, if it is cheaper, good for buyers
