Post Office Regulations! With Insured Mail

Recommended Posts

TS Ron

Has one read the new regulations with Insured Mail!

Basically as I understand if a insured item has gone missing the Post Office shall not be held liable.

If something is eatten by rats etc while in transport they not liable.

In the case of electronics if any ants damage the product while being transported by the post office they not liable.

That is what I understood by their insured mail today.

So surely this is not fair as the post office has no competition! Is the CPA going to permit this?

As I see it, JP mentioned that they are a "company", so we should be able to tackle them on that basis.

 

But the question is whether enough people will bother.

 

It seems a bit like taking out dread disease insurance but you'll only get paid out if you die.

Me too Asecon. I complain and compliment as much as possible these days. Too many are unemployed to allow bad attitude, bad management and bad service to reign the way they do. Toy Toying got some things right ... we need to throw our toys to get the rest right.

 

I wonder why the PO has no competition? Postnet is good, but way too expensive for regular use on cheaper products.

Mellowred Postnet uses the post office for transport! We need a independent company to give the PO some competition.. What bothers me is the PO saying it is okay for the item to go missing and not question their staff? Yes I often compliment and make sure I send the compliments to the customer service in the Post Office about speedy service etc.

Checkers and Clicks have fully fledged pharmacies on their premises and Wollies and P&P offer almost all banking services - perhaps one of them should go in competition with the PO.

Now I know that in "the good old days when I was young" there was legislation preventing anyone from opening a business in competition to the Post Office.

 

Now that it is a company, I am not sure whether that legislation still applies. There is a huge opening for a private company/ies to get in on the act and provide a better service providing that legislation is no longer valid!

 

In terms of the old legislation, no-one (and I mean no-one) was allowed to profit with postage and that is why the "postage and packaging" situation came into being. Of course the "packaging" situation is being abused and I doubt anyone has ever been charged in recent years with over-charging on post and packaging.
