Christmas 2018: Delivery Deadlines
Merry Christmas from the BullionByPost team!
The BullionByPost website will remain open and will continue to take online orders 24 hours a day over the Christmas period. Customers must make prompt payments after placing their orders to keep their price fixed.
Please order well in advance to ensure delivery by Christmas. The Royal Mail is always at their busiest this time of the year, so ordering sooner will help avoid any backlogs or delays - especially if there is any adverse weather! We recommend upgrading orders below £250 value to be Next Day Delivery.
The final date for payment by cheque (for Christmas delivery) is Thursday 13th December. Orders after this date will need to be by bank card or bank transfer. Cheques take one week to clear, meaning your parcel will be dispatched on the 20th at the latest.
After 2pm on Friday 21st December no parcels will be dispatched until our return in the New Year.
Order dispatching will resume on Wednesday 2nd January 2019. We aim to get all orders dispatched by Wednesday 9th January.
Customers will be contacted if their order is delayed but if you have any concerns you can email us at [email protected] which we will respond to as a priority upon our return to the office in the New Year.
You can find our delivery deadline dates for Royal Mail and courier postage below:
Thursday 20th December - Recorded Delivery & 1st Class
This is the last day to send out Royal Mail Recorded (Tracked) delivery and 1st Class post.
These delivery options are for orders UNDER £250 in value.
Orders after 2pm will be processed and packed as normal, but there is NO guarantee that your items will be received by Christmas.
Friday December 21st - Special Delivery & Courier Postage
This is the Christmas deadline for Next Working Day deliveries, Saturday Guaranteed Delivery, and Courier services.
These are for orders OVER £250 in value, but orders below can be upgraded for a small fee.
Please note: Courier services are usually delivered the Next Working Day, but longer distances can take two days for parcels to arrive. If you are ordering over 1.8kg please place your order well ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
