Who delivers your parcels?
Royal Mail deliver the majority of our parcels. We use a mixture of First and Second Class services depending on weight, delivery service selected and cost. This way we can keep costs low and in turn pass these savings on to you. Depending on how quickly the items are required and the size/value of your order, we may use DPD 24/48hr. For our guaranteed next working day service we use DPD 24hr.
In order to stop you waiting in all day for your order, DPD will email and text you (if you supply your mobile number) on the morning your order is dispatched with a specific one hour delivery window. If you decide that this time is not convenient, you can use email or text to simply change the delivery date. DPD provides easy tracking with proof of delivery for your peace of mind.
Your order will be dispatched via Royal Mail or DPD. You will find this information on your dispatch email.
If your order is being dispatched via Royal Mail, although a signature is not usually required the parcels are sometimes too large to fit through the letterbox so someone will need to be present to take your order. If this is not possible, Royal Mail will put a card through your door advising that your parcel is awaiting collection from your local depot. Unfortunately, we are not able to pass delivery instructions to Royal Mail if you wish your parcel to be left in a safe location or with a neighbour.
Royal Mail are currently trialling a 'delivery to neighbour' service where if you are not home to accept delivery, your parcel will be left with a neighbour and you will receive a card through your letterbox. For more information on this service please visit http://www.royalmail.com/delivery-to-neighbour.
If your order is being dispatched via DPD your parcel will require a signature. In order to stop you waiting in all day for your order, DPD will email and text you (if you supply your mobile number) on the morning your order is dispatched with a specific one hour delivery window. If you decide that this time is not convenient, you can use email or text to simply change the delivery date.
If DPD attempt delivery and no one is present, a card will be left at the delivery address and the item will be taken to the nearest DPD depot. Using the details on the card you can contact the courier and request a second delivery attempt or collect the item from the depot. You can do this via the DPD website or by contacting them on 08445 560 560. For security reasons, they will not be able to leave the parcel without obtaining a signature. DPD provides easy tracking with proof of delivery for your peace of mind.
