A couple of years ago, I purchased both car and household insurance via the Post Office, and great cost saving and beneficial deals were secured.
But this new idea may hit problems from the start. Like many other people, we have Post Office closures in our area, and the ones that took the extra trade, seemed to have not got their act together.
One major Post Office franchise in our area as six serving windows, on every occasion that I have visited, there as never been more that three or four people serving customers who have formed a fairly large queue. Of a more local franchise, they have three windows, which on most occasions have serving staff on at one, possibly two windows, the third window as never been used. The other day I was using the last mentioned franchise, after queueing for 10/12 minutes,the staff closed one of the two windows after they had served me, leaving other people with possible longer waits.Now thats the way, on how to serve the public, and at the same time, ask the public to support ending of closures.
