Does anyone know how much it costs to ship a hoodie to South Korea? I have looked on Royal Mail and none of the options seem to have tracking outside of the UK and those that do say £50+ which can't be right?

FUCKING CUNTS!!! The lovely mother sent me a shirt that was delivered to my home address to my uni address. They left a card saying 'sorry you were out'. Went to pick it up. They say they can't find the fucking thing in the sorting office and will ring me once they know where it is. She paid for registered next day and it took 3 days to get here. I bet they won't call me. £145 worth of stuff in there. ARGHGHGHGG etc

Am I right in thinking that there is no method of shipping to Russia whereby I will be able to track the parcel to the recipients door? I thought I have used international signed for or airsure before and been able to track it all the way but when I look at posting to Russia all of the methods say they can only be tracked within the uk

You send international signed for, which track it leaving the UK on the RoyalMail website. Then once its in Russia you use their postal service website and the tracking number works on there.

Depends on the weight mostly, if it's under 2Kg it will be fairly cheap, over that it can get a bit expensive, but £50 sounds a bit steep, international signed-for provides fairly good tracking.

I ordered the supreme apc pettit standards yesterday from apc.fr and got them at 10am!
Also ordered some vinyl from Juno.co.uk at 4:30pm yesterday and got them today, the last lot of vinyl took 4 days to arrive. A bit hit and miss atm.

My dad sent out two parcels to me from the US last week, both declared at the same value, same weight and both sent at the same time.

One arrived on Wednesday. The other is yet to arrive. The fuck??

I waited a week plus for some recorded items and then a special delivery came perfectly next day, seems very random at the moment.

Probably been addressed however, checking tracking for a parcel and was told they tried to deliver today despite being in the whole time. Anyway I didn't even get a card saying they tried to deliver the package, so is it simply a case of going down with some ID to my branch asking for my package tomorrow?.

Yep. You might want to print off the online tracking thing that says it's at the sorting office too, cos they're right condescending wankers who think you've never had a letter through your door in your life and probably won't look properly otherwise

That's fucked up about the christmas cards, do they take on seasonal staff? I've got a new debit card ordered, hope it's not too delayed.

Good idea, thanks.
