Recommended Last Safe Posting Dates for Christmas 2009

There are only seventy-four days left before Christmas day, so time to start thinking about Christmas shopping, especially if you wish to send something overseas, a gift for a relative abroad and such like.  In a bid to help our customers, Everything Dinosaur will be extending our packing hours once again this Christmas and we will continue to pack and despatch goods for customers on Saturday mornings.  We genuinely try to do all we can to ensure items ordered from Everything Dinosaur are despatched as quickly as possible.

The information below is the guide published by Royal Mail as to the last safe posting dates for Christmas mail sent in the UK and overseas.

A team member at Everything Dinosaur, tried in vain to find the Christmas posting information at the Royal Mail website.  The Christmas posting dates for 2008 were located but they were not able to find the information for this year’s posting dates.  We know that our local post office has resorted to researching the dates themselves and hand writing a notice for their customers as they have not received any formal information from Royal Mail to date.  We eventually found the information we wanted at the website of a Post Office located in north Wales.  This is a sad reflection on the current state of Royal Mail’s management, the threat of strike action at Royal Mail means that it is very important that customers wishing to send items via the Royal Mail network post in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.

Staff at Everything Dinosaur will do all they can to assist customers and below is a list of helpful hints and tips about the Christmas post.

1).  Remember to include the house number or house name with the delivery address information.

2).  Check postcode/zip code details carefully.

3).  Before pressing the “submit” button to send an order to Everything Dinosaur, check the delivery address one last time.

4). Remember, with PayPal, Google Checkout and our own website’s ordering process customers can write a message to us in the order message box.  You can write in confirmation of delivery address or any specific, relevant information required to help ensure a rapid delivery.

5).  If you want to specify a different delivery address to your billing address, our website allows you to do this easily and without fuss.

6).  If you want to send an item to your work address, please ensure that you include the company name in the delivery address information.
