PRODUCT AVAILABILITY UPDATE
Unprecedented social, economic and political factors, have resulted in large scale disruptions to many global supply chains. Unfortunately, this is impacting the availability and lead times on some of our products. The team is working hard with our suppliers to resolve these issues, and we apologise for any disappointment experienced.
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that lead times from our suppliers can change even after your order is confirmed, especially for high demand products. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these unforeseen delays.
Important Information from Royal Mail regarding Deliveries During the COVID-19 Pandemic
"We're working hard to meet our usual delivery aims. If a date is offered, we will aim for it. If we can't because of the continued effects of Coronavirus on our people and ways of working, we will deliver as soon as possible. For UK items, a further up[date will be provided when it reaches your local delivery office. For awareness, you may get two deliveries in one day. Sorry for any inconvenience caused."
Important Information Regarding Delivery via ParcelForce during outbreak of COVID 19
"Due to the current situation, there are significant impacts on our ability to maintain all our usual service levels. We will continue offering our services, receiving and delivering parcels for our customers but there may be disruptions to some services under current conditions.
As a result, we will be suspending service guarantees from 18 March 2020 but will seek to ensure ‘all reasonable endeavours’ to maintain service levels where we can.
Due to the evolving exceptional circumstances, we are closely monitoring the situation at an individual country level. Because of this, we are also suspending our international delivery guarantees as we may experience some delivery delays. Please note that some of our international partners are also suspending requirements for signature on delivery, and therefore we are unable to guarantee to you that signature on delivery will be obtained outside of the UK. Some countries may also have a suspension of service, or a suspension of service guarantee in place.
We are still processing your international parcels until we are informed otherwise by our overseas partners. In the vast majority of cases our services are continuing as normal. For the latest service updates across the UK and overseas please visit parcelforce.com/service-updates"

For items posted from Thursday 19 March 2020 onwards, we’ll no longer guarantee deliveries by 1pm the next working day. We’ll still prioritise Special Delivery parcels and letters and will aim to deliver by 1pm or before the end of day. Resource implications of the continuing advice regarding coronavirus means we may not be able to meet the customer promise of guaranteed next day delivery in all locations at all times.
