    I bought something online and got the confirmation today that it had been sent and I should get it before 1pm tomorrow (using the royal mail next day 1pm delivery service). thing is, i kinda wanted to wear what i ordered at school tomorrow and wondered what the chances were that it would arrive before half 8 when i leave for school?
    is it some special delivery truck that comes or just the normal postman?
    sorry for the weird question! haha x

    Spesh usually comes separately to the regular post but I've no idea whether it would be there before 8:30am

    I doubt it. Knowing Royal Mail, before one o'clock will probably mean half three...

    In my experience slim to none.

    There is a next day before 9am service aswell, so unless the extra was paid for guarenteed before 9am delivery, I doubt it will come before half 8.
    Also, anything ive ordered by special delivery has never come with normal post, always deliverd by someone in a van.

    My experience of special delivery is it comes from the normal bloke on the day they say it will, if you normally get your post before you leave for school then I would have thought you'll get it before you go, if not then bad luck.

    My special deliveries normally come with the postman - so normally about 12.

    Can't remember ever getting one before 9 (dont think anyone ever sent one that urgent)

    If you didn;t specifically pay for before 9 then you will prob get it when the postman normally turns up
