Delivery of your parcel
When you send a parcel with Insured Delivery, the first delivery attempt is usually made the next business day (also on Saturday). Parcels received by us on Saturday will be delivered on Tuesday. If the addressee is not at home, a second delivery attempt will be made the next day.
If we are unable to complete delivery, your parcel will be delivered to the nearest post office where it will remain for 21 days. If no one comes to collect it in that time, the parcel will be returned to sender.
You can check the delivery status of your parcel at any time using our online tracking service.

Please note that in order to qualify for compensation, you will be required to show proof of posting.
