I usually send registered so that designated adressee or someoine where he/she lives/works has to sign for the item . Generally this works very well and if no one in a notification left. There is no tracking per se` along the way like EMS which costs double and more but the end of line requires a signature. The PO should know where it is and have a copy of the signature.
Recently I've had a case of usps saying that registered item arrived at postal unit on Nov 1st but nothing else. No more details
My customer was not in to receive. I was also partially to blame as I should have sent to his work address and not the paypal shipping designated which I did automatically with all the Go's I prepared for dispatch, mostly registered and all arrived safely within space of 7- 13 days to UK, US and Canad addresses. There were about 12 packages of Peli Go's that I sent together that day and used paypal's shipping address.
Question is can mailman just turf anywhere, near the door, mailbox, in the garden (4 Peli Go's so quite large).
Addressee told me that in his area anyone can pilfer and this normally happens if mail left unattended. But as it's registered delivery, seems that mailman must get a signature and if not leave a notification in the box or on the door that a registered item waiting at PO.
This is standard practice and on the whole one can rely on it. But does this always happen or can mailman get a neighbor or passing kid to sign for it and then be done with.
I hope that the Go's are at the PO. They landed last week on Nov 1st, sent out from here Oct 21st which is about normal. Sometimes even 2 to 3 weeks and on the very rare occasion 4 days. EMS takes 2-3 working days.
I hope this has a happy ending. It does Parcel was waiting at PO
What are your registered mail experiences, good and bad.
