Royal Mail strike
It's annoying , but not as bad as you might think from the news reports.
It seems to be mainly affecting London. We've found that some of the packges sent with our free option (Royalmail 1st Class recorded) are being delayed by 1-2 days. A few have been delayed by about 5 days.
Items sent with Special Delivery are always getting delivered on time (except the one day where our local postie went on strike and didn't collect the mail!).
So, If your order is for a special occasion, I would recommend spending the extra £5.40 on Special Delivery to take the worry out of whether or not it will be delivered in time.
If the strike carries on much longer, or gets worse, we will add a courier option for about the same price as Special Delivery.
