UPDATE FROM THE ROYAL MAIL
In light of the changing coronavirus restrictions announced on Saturday 19th December 2020, we have made the difficult decision to make the following changes to our timed guarantees for our Special Delivery by 9am and 1pm services:
Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm
From Thursday 24 December we will reinstate our temporary timed guarantee for Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm as follows.
For items posted from Thursday 24 December 2020 onwards we will guarantee deliveries by 4.00pm* the next working day. As a result, from that date we will not consider a claim for delay or consequential loss as a result of delay for items posted using the Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1.00pm service that are delivered between 1.00pm and 4.00pm the next working day. This includes items where a Saturday guarantee has been purchased.
*existing postcode exceptions apply
