Ive had packages delivered, but they have taken on average a week longer than normal. Especially to sign for items.

Iím echoing the others but, yes, while itís all been hit and miss time wise, Iíve received everything Iíve ordered from books to medals, items from M&S etc etc without a single thing going missing. Some arrive quickly, some donít, but nothing has been lost.

As Charliedog says, the posties have been brilliant throughout this period (just like the supermarket workers, delivery drivers...)

G'd evening all

Ive had 2 parcels come from Sydney to Melbourne, almost a 1000 kms in a few days and some posted in the UK in late March that have just got here, almost 8 weeks where as it normally takes 10 to 14 days from the UK to Melbourne.

Take care, be safe and wash your hands.

Phil.

I suspect it might be a distance related problem, ten and a half thousand miles and a lack of available flights!
