Courier Delivery is Now Our UK Standard

April 3rd, 2014

The combination of the recent increase in Royal Mail postal charges and increasingly competitive courier rates now means that we now able to offer, as standard, a 2-3 day courier delivery on all orders for delivery within the UK – even the smallest. And, at the same time, we are able to hold the price rather that charge the Royal Mail increase.

Our courier delivery service is provided by Hermes – a company that has been delivering most of our heavier parcels within the UK for almost two years now, efficiently and without any problems or issues. Extending this service to include smaller parcels means that they will now share in the other benefits of a courier service – full tracking, higher compensation amounts (which we have never had to claim !) and, if you choose, a nominated ‘safe place’, where the package can be left if you are not at home when the courier calls. It’s a consistently reliable and economical service that we thoroughly recommend.

Of course, we believe in offering choice – so if you prefer First Class Mail – or even Second Class Mail – you can still make that choice at check-out. And, wherever possible. we will still switch your delivery to the Royal Mail Large Letter rate. This applies to light and thin items – such as bobbins and smaller books – and we only know if it applies when you order is packed but, where it does, we will automatically pass on the extra saving.

Holding costs to the minimum – while offering choice and increased service – that’s good for everyone.
