Christmas 2016 Last Posting Dates

Christmas Postman Dates

Christmas Posting Dates around the World 2016

Its Christmas time (well nearly it seems to come round quicker every year), please find below the advised last posting dates from Royal Mail for Christmas 2016

Please note that although we post everything within 1 working day of your order these delivery estimate dates depend on many things including:

1.     Overseas Customs being nice, clearing parcels quickly and not having backlogs,

2.     Weather (as we don’t cope very well in UK with Snow, threat of snow or even a flutter in the sky),

3.     Volumes of mail going through the postal system, (get in early is our advice)

4.     Any national / international postal authorities staging walkouts or strikes,

Our advice is to buy early and then you miss the rush. If you are not in when they attempt delivery then the post service “Should” leave a card, this does not always happen, so if you do not receive your parcel when you are expecting it, please let us know.

We know some of these are a day earlier than Royal Mail. But based on 10 years of business with them, we know how overseas backlogs occur very quickly, esp if they need to clear customs.
