Christmas Posting Dates 2015 – Information
After the lovely warm weather enjoyed by much of the United Kingdom over the last few days, it may seem surprising but there are only eighty-five days left before Christmas day. Palaeontologists may have to work in “deep time”, but these next few weeks are going to fly by, so Everything Dinosaur is urging all its customers to start thinking about Christmas and Christmas shopping. As a mail order company which ships dinosaur toys and games all over the world we try to help our customers by publishing information on the last recommended posting dates to ensure items arrive in time for the big day.
We do try and help everybody as much as we can, the warehouse team will once again be working long hours, seven days a week and we will begin packing and despatching orders on Saturdays to help speed up deliveries. We will also soon begin packing orders on Sundays to help customers.
Royal Mail has produced a guide about the last safe posting dates for Christmas for parcels and other mail sent around the UK and abroad. A table reproduced below sums up the recommended posting dates by geographical region. Our best advice is, as always, to post early.
