Its that time of year again, Christmas is almost upon us and the shopping season is flying past like the international space station, we want to ensure any items that you may wish to order for the big day actually arrives on time and doesn’t leave anyone’s stocking a little lighter.
Our first advice would be to order well in advance to ensure that your parcel isn’t caught up in any deliver backlogs or delayed due to bad weather conditions, given the flooding that we have experienced in the last couple of week, delays may be an issue.
We have consulted with Royal Mail and Parcel Force to discuss each courier’s delivery plans over the festive period.
Below is a table of when you should expect the your parcel will be delivered if your order is placed before 14:00pm on the day of ordering. Any orders placed after this time will not be despatched to the following working day this is due to collection times from all our couriers. (Very important)
Please also bear in mind this this is only a guide based on the information from our couriers, adverse weather conditions and heavy volumes may affect these dates.

Royal Mail statement:
…..” While we always aim to provide a next day service on 1st Class mail and a three day service for 2nd Class, at this time of year Royal Mail deals with a huge increase in volumes of letters, cards and parcels.
Since 1985, Ofcom and previous regulators have excluded December from the specific normal target requirement for deliveries, in recognition of the vast amount of mail we deal with during the Christmas period. Nonetheless, Royal Mail continues to prioritise 1st Class mail over 2nd Class mail in the normal way.
Our network remains very busy, as seasonal parcel and mail volumes continue to be delivered.”…….
