Royal Mail - no problem
I used to have one of these... It's a Dean Markley Promag easy install acoustic guitar pickup I think I lent it to someone a while go and it disappeared - I've searched the house. It's gone.
So gig looming I thought - order one you berk! So I looked on Strings Direct and found them for just under £50. So I ordered it.
I only noticed when I got the dispatch notice that I was 5p under the limit for them using ParcelForce and realised it had been dispatched via Royal Mail 1st Class. Darn I thought "the strikes!". If I'd have bought a plectrum it would have been on Parcelforce and trackable and easy to pick up (ho ho!) at the local Post Office. But I shouldn't have worried, less than 24 hours after my ordering it was delivered by my friendly postie.
So Royal Mail - brilliant!!! I hope whatever the outcome of the dispute currently that great service isn't undermined.
