If you’re not home when Royal Mail attempts to deliver your package, they will leave a “something for you” card. This card will have instructions on how to reschedule delivery or collect the package from the local delivery office.
The card will have information on when and where you can collect your package. You’ll need to bring the card and a valid form of identification, such as a driver’s license or passport, to collect the package. You can also arrange for redelivery online or by phone.
If you don’t collect or arrange redelivery within 18 days, the package will be returned to the sender. In some cases, the sender may charge a fee for redelivery or may not be able to redeliver the package at all.
Options Available If You Miss Your Royal Mail Delivery:
- Collect your package from the local delivery office: If you missed your delivery, you can collect your package from the local delivery office. Make sure to bring the “something for you” card and a valid form of identification.
- Schedule redelivery: If you can’t collect your package from the delivery office, you can schedule redelivery online or by phone. You’ll need to provide the reference number on the “something for you” card and choose a convenient date and time for redelivery.
- Authorize a neighbor or family member to collect your package: If you won’t be home for the redelivery, you can authorize a neighbor or family member to collect the package on your behalf. Make sure to provide them with the “something for you” card and a copy of your ID.
- Use a delivery service point: Royal Mail has delivery service points where you can collect your package at a convenient time and location. You can choose a delivery service point during the redelivery process or by using the “delivery to a safe place” option when ordering your package.
