Sent something to someone on here in Switzerland on 10 February and he still hasn't got it - sent it via international signed for, 18 days seems a bit extreme for delivery, is this common? Tracking number on royal mail says it has been received and is being prepared to be sent abroad Puzzled

Yeah seems a long time that, did you fill out a CN22 customs form with it?

Not that I remember, should I have done? Is it maybe caught up in customs?

If you can get in contact with Swiss post they may have additional info. I had a look on their site and they don't appear to have a way to track Royal Mail stuff online

This fucking saga is dragging on - it began with the stupid cunts at old street post office not telling me I needed a CN22 form for Switzerland and now looks like ending with me out of pocket.
Basically the 'scanning equipment at heathrow is broken' hence why my package still says it's in the UK nearly 3 weeks after I posted it. There is no sign of it at the Swiss post office so it's not looking like it's lost. I sent it international signed for so the most I can claim is £36, I sold it for £50 and I have to prove how much the item is worth, how the fuck will I do that? I will never ever sell anything internationally again. FACT

Print off of the paypal payment and auction page should prove the value. Did the package have your return address on?

Yeah wrote it on the back so hoping that if it did get turned away by cutsoms it'll find it's way back to me. It was on here so no auction page and he paid by international bank transfer, I guess i'll have to just print off as much as I can, thanks again robii

Slightly off topic, anyone know if YMC use Interlink for deliveries? Missed a delivery today and have a card from Interlink and the bastards won't tell me which company it's from over the phone. Waiting on a few things from different companies and if it's not the YMC one then don't want to waste a few hours of my life driving up the M1 to their depot…

Posted something, first class, about 10 days ago. It has not shown up.

Have I got a hope in hell of getting anything back from the hopeless cunts?

Was not recorded delivery and I don't have any proof of postage.

go into the post office, show them a book of first class stamps with one missing, tell the man behind the counter you posted 2000 quid in a jiffy bag, he will replace the cash to you and reimburse you in full there and then…might only give you fiddys tho, as they are a bit contrite in handing out scores and tenners these days.
