Christmas and New Year 2017 Despatch DatesJennifer
We will be here and working over the Christmas period but the despatch and delivery of parcels will be affected throughout the period due to weekends, Bank Holidays and peak delivery times.
Standard Delivery £3.95 and Express Delivery £5.95
We use the Royal Mail’s “Second Class Signed For” service for our Standard Delivery and The Royal Mail’s “First Class Signed For” service for our Express Delivery Service. The Royal Mail do not guarantee a delivery date or time and there may be delays during the peak Christmas and New Year period. This will very much depend upon the volume of parcels at your local delivery depot.
Standard Delivery takes an average of 2 to 4 working days
Express Delivery takes an average of 1 to 2 working days
The delivery timescales may be longer during the Christmas period.
The Royal Mail will not be delivering parcels on a Sunday or a Bank Holiday over the Christmas period.
We despatch parcels Monday to Friday, we will continue to despatch parcels as normal up to and including Friday 22nd December 2017.
The Royal Mail will not deliver parcels on a Sunday or Bank Holiday.
Our Royal Mail parcels will be despatched once again parcels from Wednesday the 27th until Friday the 29th December 2017. No further parcels will be despatched until Tuesday 2nd January 2018. When normal Monday to Friday despatch will resume.
Next Day Delivery £7.95
In the week leading up to Christmas, Next Day Delivery companies are swamped with last minute parcels. This may lead to delays as vans are filled and time runs out to deliver parcels. This may lead to an extra day being added to delivery times. This will only be known on the day of delivery, the delivery company should notify you of any delays if known in advance.
Next Day delivery is available for Monday to Friday only. There is a premium charge for a Saturday delivery date.
Our last despatch day for Next Day Delivery before Christmas will be Thursday 21st December 2017.
We will despatch Next Day Delivery Parcels again on Wednesday 27th December 2017 until Friday 29th December 2017. Please note: Parcels despatched on Friday 29th December will not be delivered until Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
We will resume normal Monday to Friday despatch of parcels from Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy 2018.
