So here it is...
It's been another year of ups and downs but...we're about there!!
We will be despatching with all couriers every day we're open in the run up to Christmas and between Christmas and New Year BUT that's doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea to leave certain last minute protein-shopping to the last minute with all of them, and we'd HATE to let you guys down! Nothing worse than goodies missing the big day!!
We'll be despatching Royal Mail, DHL and DPD orders right up until 3:00PM Thursday, 23/12/21 but we do have recommended cut-off dates for our various couriers.
Recommended Shipping Options for pre-Christmas delivery (UK):
- Royal Mail/Free Shipping/Value 2-3 Day: Order by 2:30PM, Friday 18th Dec
- DHL/UK Mail: Order by 2:30PM, Monday 21st Dec
- DPD: Order by 2:30PM, Tuesday 22rd Dec
Recommended Shipping Options for pre-Christmas delivery (NI, Highlands, Islands):
- Royal Mail: Order by 3:00PM, Monday 20th Dec
- Reliability issues + delays with Royal Mail! Despatched Monday orders *should* arrive in time, but we can't promise! DPD recommended if crucial! -
- DPD: Order by 3:00PM, Wednesday 22nd Dec **Last Chance!**
Orders heading to the above UK destinations *may* arrive in time via shipping methods other than DPD after the recommended dates above but it's a gamble! We cannot guarantee given some of the delays seen this year.
We're despatching right up until the 23rd so VERY last call will be 3:00PM Thurs 23rd via DPD Next Day (where available).
** DPD always recommended for maximum reliability **
All orders received after 3:00PM, Wednesday 29th Dec will be despatched after New Years (on Monday 3rd Jan, 2022).
Please note: All other, International destinations - especially European with Brexit delays and difficulties - will require more time and will probably suffer with the usual seasonal slowdown at borders and, as a result, we strongly suggest get your orders in as early as possible to get goodies in time for Christmas.
