The “Something for You” card from Royal Mail is left by the postman when they attempt to deliver a parcel or letter but there’s nobody available to accept the delivery. This could be because the item is too large to fit through your letterbox, requires a signature, or you weren’t home to receive it.
Here’s what you can do if you receive a “Something for You” card:
- Check the card details: The card should have information about the item attempted to be delivered including the date and time of the attempted delivery. It should also indicate where your item is now – it could be at your local post office, delivery office, or left with a neighbor.
- Redelivery: You can arrange a redelivery online at the Royal Mail. Follow the instructions on the card or visit the Royal Mail’s redelivery page. You’ll need the details from the card to arrange this.
- Collection: If you prefer, you can collect the item yourself. The card will tell you where to go to collect your item. You’ll need to bring the card with you as well as some form of ID.
Remember, if the item requires a signature or is a special delivery, you’ll need to collect it or arrange redelivery within a certain timeframe. This is usually 18 calendar days for regular items and 7 calendar days for special delivery items.
There’s no charge for this service for items delivered by Royal Mail, but there may be a small charge for Parcelforce items.
