How will this affect my delivery?

Unfortunately orders shipped around the strike dates using Economy, Premium & Express shipping options in UK are likely to be delayed.

Orders placed using Next Working Day shipping options should not be affected for UK Mainland.

 

Can I still order on your website?

Yes, you can still order online via our website for delivery.

 

How do I avoid any delays to my delivery?

We strongly recommend choosing our Next Working Day shipping options if your delivery is time sensitive, as they will be delivered by DPD or DHL and will not be affected by the Royal Mail strike action.

 

Will this affect international Orders?

No, our international orders are not shipped via Royal Mail and should not be affected.
