So you
a) used to work with/for Royal Mail but you still used them despite allegedly seeing mail being treated badly?
b) go all the way to a post office to weigh something and get a price when you can much more easily weigh it at home and find the price online? I have NEVER got a different quote when I have done this and subsequently gone to a PO, and I frequent about 20-30 PO's around Yorkshire as I work in a large area and have visited a lot of them.
c) think you package stuff up correctly but yet it still arrives damaged? I have sold around 400 items on ebay and all the stuff on my feedback thread on here and I've never had a problem, using RM as my main delivery service.
d) insult people on here who want to discuss it with you. I can see how serving you in a PO would be a supreme pleasure, I wonder if the counter person upped the price just because of how nice you are?

I suggest you use Yodel. Their prices will suit you more, but please come back and let us know how you got on.
a) yes, you're right - I have used them, but I won't use them again.
b) I haven't got scales in the house because the set I bought arrived damaged when delivered from er, Royal Mail :shock:
c) I have just finished working for a company whom has stopped using Royal Maul because their deliveries weren't getting to the destination in one piece, and no I wasn't packing the goods. :wink:
d) He started it...

... and I won't use Yodel :P

Now, thank you for your help. Have a nice day! :D erm BTW, you don't work for Royal Mail do you?

ps. Thanks to the people whom replied with helpful answers. :wink:

Sent a recorded delivery with RM to Norway, where did it end up? Milan. Italy, seriously? Three weeks later it arrived back to me, how does that work??

Can't complain with Royal Mail to be honest. Cost me £3.65 to send 3 brakes in a box First Class Recorded.
