Post boxes




In amsterdam i noticed that the collection times are not on the post box just the day,Is there only one post collection per day???Thanks for any help.
Yes, daily at 6 pm.
How can all the post be picked up at 6pm? you would need a postie for every post box lol.
They have vans and just go to every post box and empty them, I guess.
One collection a day sounds like a piss poor service.
How so? Post something today, it's where you need it to be tomorrow. It's always been like that. Is it different where you live?
Yes the post boxes are emptied three times a day in the U.K,What time is the mail delivered?
just take a walk over to the post office and do your business with them if the 6p pick up time does not fit your schedule. they are always helpful and quick too.

Three times a day, unless they're on a strike again!

That depends on your postman and where abouts in his area you live. Usually somewhere in the afternoon or late morning.

So there you go:mail is collected 3 times a day in the UK but only one delivery per day. But it's the other way round in NL.

I've sort of got used to our way now in fact I can scarcely remember the second delivery. I do wish the delivery was earlier in the day though - we're lucky to get the post by 1pm most days!

:-)
On a side note i posted a package to the uk late monday night(so picked up at 6pm tuesday) and it still hasn't arrived...should i kiss it goodbye?
No dont panick just yet, I think it takes up to 5 days, in future go inside the PO and send it Priority it costs a few euro cents extra but they arrive quicker.
Seen it take up to 3 months.....he.

And usually not delivered for at least two days. I know what I'd prefer.

The mail is only delivered once a day in Holland Anne. I agree that most local stuff arrives next day.
I got my letter today empty! royal mail bastards

I know it's only once day.
We get junk mail (advertising) delivered many times a day. It has nothing to do with the Post. Except they use the mail slot.

That reminds me that I think I remember stickers near folks' mailslots. I couldn't read the Nederlandse but I figured they say "No Junk Mail".

or am I in a foggy, weed induced haze.

No Junk Mail owls-do-bleeft,
chuckje.
There's two versions. NEE NEE and NEE JA. The first one says no adverts and huis-aan-huisbladen please, the second one says no adverts but gimme the huis-aan-huisbladen please.

Huis-aan-huisbladen (house to house magazines) are more or less regional papers. They cost nuthin' and everyone gets them in the mail, unless you have the sticker of course.
Yes Anne is right. You can get them at the desk of the Stadsburo at the Stopera. I got several stickers and we made a "Ja,,, Ja" sign and put it on our mail slot. Nee seemed so negative.
