- what was the upshot of the Royal Mail shock saga?
Apart from air forks, of course. Even discharged ones, in the case of the previous thread.
The problem is expecting some numpty in a sorting office to take a realistic view of the risk of an empty air fork rather than just apply the letter of their t&cs and gleefully send it off for auction.
Use someone else, IMO.Posted 5 years agoOnzadogMember
Just sent mine with ups via parcels2go after asking specifically about shocks and pointing out it was considered dangerous by royal fail.
I asked the woman in the post office as well. She just said to call the help line. They were no help. It was okay, then I asked for a name or reference in case it was seized and suddenly it wasn’t okay to send. The lady on the phone became very confused when I asked if I could post a party baloon or a bicycle tube as both were capable of carrying a pressurised gas but currently didn’t, just like my air shock. The same shock, I pointed out, that regularly flies with easyjet and it hasn’t blown the plane up yet.
The only other conclusion I could draw is that royal fail are actually trying to go out of business.
Other than that, I have no strong opinion.Posted 5 years ago
