Christmas is almost upon us so here are Royal Mail’s last posting dates.
With the return of the rush to get everything ordered, posted and delivered before Christmas, we just wanted to remind our customers that delays are possible and it is increasingly important to make sure you get your labels ordered as early as possible. We advise customers to consider adding a next working day shipping option where available to avoid disappointment if orders are required urgently. In particular, if you want labels for items you will be posting out yourself for delivery before Christmas, you need to place your order as early as possible so you have enough time to receive your labels, print and apply them to your items, and get your items posted before the last posting dates.
So, here are those all important dates:
- 18th December: second class post
- 19th December: tracked second class post
- 20th December: first class post (this is our standard UK delivery service)
- 21st December: tracked first class post
- 23rd December: next working day guaranteed post
PLEASE NOTE that first and second class post (whether tracked or not) are NOT guaranteed services and may be subject to delays. If you want to GUARANTEE your delivery then you will need to add a special delivery option (if available).
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about adding a next working day shipping option to your order.
