Royal Mail Postal Information for Christmas

Team members at Everything Dinosaur are working around the clock to prepare, pack and despatch orders so that customers can get their parcels in time for Christmas.  Once again the dedicated staff have been working all weekend packing parcels and sorting out orders, aided by the occasional mince pie and hot chocolate drink.  It is always a good idea to try to beat the inevitable Christmas rush by posting early, however, Royal Mail does publish guidelines concerning the last recommended safe posting dates for Christmas mail.

Last Recommended Posting Dates

Royal Mail states the following for UK post:

Last recommended safe posting date for second class parcels is Tuesday 18th December

The last recommended safe posting date for first class parcels is Thursday 20th December

The best advice we can give customers is to order early, we will continue to work as hard as we can pack and despatch parcels, team members will be packing until around 10pm this evening, in this way as many parcels as possible can go out with the first collection on Monday morning.  One other point worth noting, before finally pressing the “submit” button and sending the order to Everything Dinosaur, please take a moment to check the delivery address.

Our team members do check delivery addresses and all our address labels are checked at least twice by our staff, but just occasionally, an order with an incorrect delivery address is sent through to us (usually the postcode is wrong).  Incorrectly addressed orders can lead to delays in delivery and the possibility of that all important Christmas delivery being missed.

Please help us to help you by taking a moment to check delivery addresses.
