Christmas Delivery Service & Last Posting Dates for Christmas - 2016
In the run up to Christmas, the postal service gets really 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 is very busy and slows down considerably. We have known goods take up to 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 sort itself out and get the goods delivered in time for Christmas - as long as they are sent before the LAST POSTING dates!
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.
Last Posting Dates: 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 2016 our last ORDER dates are:
UK Mainland - FRIDAY 16th December
Europe, incl. Rep of Ireland - THURSDAY 8th 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 THURSDAY 1st December)
USA/Canada/International - THURSDAY 8th 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 THURSDAY 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.
After Last Posting dates: Once the last posting date is passed, and during the actual holiday period, any orders will be dispatched at the next available opportunity, but of course may not arrive before Christmas. Dispatch is usually the next working day after the order is placed. There is no order dispatch from Friday 23rd Dec to Monday 26th Dec, nor on Monday 2nd January 2017.
