Christmas Delivery Service & Last Posting Dates for Christmas - 2012
In the run up to Christmas the postal service gets pretty busy. So the following is information to explain the service.
If you have ordered from us around the period from mid-November to mid-December and are waiting for delivery please bear in mind that at this time of year the postal system slows down considerably. Goods can take two weeks to arrive in the UK. If you Contact Us we can confirm when something was dispatched, but cannot usually track the parcel. Please be patient with your delivery. Somehow the postal system does seem to get the goods delivered - as long as they are sent before the Last Posting dates!
We use the standard Royal Mail postal system to deliver our goods. In the run up to Christmas the postal system gets VERY BUSY with the sheer numbers of items going through it, so that our packets and parcels do take much longer to get through to their destination. For deliveries to the UK, certainly a week and more likely two weeks.
To avoid disappointment please be sure to bear delivery times in mind and order early. If you wish to know more about a quicker delivery service, please Contact Us and we can discuss the options.
Jersey Post publish recommended last posting dates for deliveries to arrive in time for Christmas. We always err on the side of caution by a couple of days. So in 2012 our last posting dates are:
UK Mainland - SATURDAY 15th December
Europe - FRIDAY 7th December (this date is for the Airmail packet/small parcel service used for orders under 2kg weight. The recommended final date for the slower Parcel service is SATURDAY 1st December)
USA/Canada/International - SATURDAY 1st December (this date is for the Airmail packet/small parcel service used for orders under 2kg weight. The recommended final date for the slower Parcel service is SATURDAY 17th November)
Whilst we do all we can to get your order delivered before Christmas, we do use the standard post system, and therefore cannot guarantee delivery in time.
