I don't know about Europe, but where I live in Canada I am very isolated (next closest town is 575 km away over dirt road) and there is no such thing as "next day". Everything takes at least a week or 10 days, even if it says it will be there in less. I might as well live on Mars with how long it takes mail to get here LOL!!!

when I send something in the UK from London, people get it in 2 (3 max) days. I tried next day delivery but only once it arrived the next day smile.gif 2 days is minimum from my experience.

Depends on who you buy from. I've had both good and bad experiences. More reputable companies and those where you pay a bit extra for next day special delivery, I've actually received at the crack of dawn the very next day. If you've waited over a week though, I would claim your money back and go elsewhere.
Sorry 'bout that, it is highly annoying.

edit: my mistake, you were talking about the PO in UK, I thought the US.

In the US, the Post Office is great with mail, max 3 days in my experience, from either LA or NY. Often 2 from there. And often one day if close by.

But they are not the best for shipping, Fed Ex is the best, UPS second, PO third, for shipping.

I have never been disappointed with special delivery in uk. I usually receive first class mail next day where I am. I have ordered at 8pm before now and received at 8am.
