How long should 1st class delivery take to arrive?

I have been waiting for a 1st class package for 4 days now. I'm just wondering if it's usual for Royal Mail to take a while to deliver certain things, or whether it's usually a case of "it either arrives on time or it's lost". Is it normal for 1st class items to take this long to arrive? Or do you think my package is lost?

should be the next delivery date however royal post scew up sometimes so be patient and wait a while.

Depends where it was sent from and to. Otherwise Royal Mail endeavour to deliver 98% of first class post the next day. Also it depends on Address being correct and readable, also if the package wasn't wrapped properly it may have got damaged in the sorting machinery or in the mail sack. Hope it gets there soon though.

This is from the Royal Mail website, link below: 'We aim to deliver most First Class mail by the next working day, including Saturdays. If you're sending mail far away, catch the early morning post so it's more likely to be delivered the next working day. Although we aim to deliver mail the next working day, we cannot guarantee delivery times. We recommend our Special Delivery 9.00am service or Special Delivery Next Day, if you want to guarantee your item arriving the next day. You can claim compensation of up to £34 for lost or damaged items. Remember you'll need a certificate of posting to make a claim. You can also claim for delayed items.' Have to say that 4 days does gives cause for concern; I think you'll find that the person who sent the package is the one who has to report its loss, and/or make a claim. Visit the site for further info.

royal mail can be the best thing ever - my grandma posted something to me in the afternoon via second class post and it arrived the next morning - or it can be totally rubbish! first class generally arrives the following day but can be affected by many things like bank holidays, weekends, etc.

if posted before last collection should be next day ........
