Royal Mail vs Other Distributors

Most sellers that I have dealt deal with (and I grant there are not thousands yet) use Royal Mail. They are the national carrier which most private (as opposed to business) users use. Why? There is a Post Office and or sorting office fairly nearby. Whatever people may say about lost or delayed items, the Royal Mail for me is the most reliable and cost effective carrier. I have had several parcels from other carriers and to be honest.... they have been more costly, less helpful, further to get to, inaccessible, inflexible and generally therefore less user friendly. I can only speak for myself here and don't want to knock the other companies. But as the consumer, paying for the carriage and delivery of an item, I expect the same standard of service I get from Royal Mail. Sadly, it just doesn't happen. As a non business user, I fully recommend the use of Royal mail wherever possible - as the buyer, I can feel confident that I am getting what I paid for - timely and safe carriage of the item purchased, with less hassle.
