Bugs and batteries, what can you send?

If you have posted a parcel in the past few weeks the chances are you were asked what’s inside. The first time I was asked I thought the Clerk was being a bit nosey;  in fact the questions were for safety reasons.

Royal Mail has produced a leaflet explaining what you can and cannot post; although it’s a tad text heavy the symbols do help the sender to work out which category applies to their parcel.

I found it quite amusing that you are able to send live creatures through the post (they must be boxed and marked as such) but not batteries.
