I've started the petition "Ofcom: Stop the massive hike in parcel postage costs by the post office" and need your help to get it off the ground.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:
Here's why it's important:
The new parcel rates ( 0 - 1 kg, 2nd class will rise from £3 odd to £5.20, 1 - 2kg from £5 odd to £8.00 ) will seriously damage local Post Office revenues.
We spend roughly £10,000 p.a. at our post office. This sort of price hike will force e-commerce business like ourselves to move to far more competitive, and efficient, private company couriers.
The Post Office needs to seriously examine it`s efficiency rather than force through huge price rises of nearly 70%, particularly with the massive growth in on-line sales.
We need our local Post Offices for many local services, this will force the closure of many, many more.
