Royal Mail strikes are happening throughout October, November and December, affecting all orders. As I'm sure you can imagine, as Royal Mail's network catches up, there will be significant disruption to services during and after the strikes.

Royal Mail is now delivering Tracked 24 orders on a Sunday where possible, so we recommend Tracked 24 as your chosen delivery option.

What does this all mean?

  • On strike dates, Royal Mail won't collect your order from us. You will still see a dispatch email from us while we prepare your order; this is normal. However, your tracking number will only begin working once the order enters Royal Mail's network.
  • Orders placed the day before, during, or the days after the strikes will most likely be delayed.
  • We recommend placing your order in advance as you may need to allow a few extra days for your order to be with you.
  • We may upgrade some Tracked 48 orders throughout the strikes to ensure as many orders arrive as quickly as possible - this will be at our sole discretion.

When are the strikes happening?

So far, we know of the following upcoming strike dates:

  • 24th, 25th, 30th of November
