Just went into the Post Office to post some bits I sold in the classifieds and walked out with 2 of the packages.
Standard Parcel no longer exists, and they won't take any items longer than 61cm (which rules out a lot of stuff we sell on here, bars, forks, etc.) so to send some forks I sold for £50 they wanted £14 via Parcel Farce!
These changes are going to make selling cheapish stuff just not worth it
If a pair of £20 bars cost £10 to post, who's going to bother.
Yes I could send via ParcelMonkey, but it means having to wait around all day....and there's no guarantee they will actually pick up.
Bad business move on the POs part IMO, as it'll push people to use 3rd party couriers for anything other than a letter as Parcel Force is very expensive, and no better than any other company.
Too many bikes, not enough time!
