Dear Customer

*Important news that I have just received is that Royal Mail has announced the immediate suspension of guarantee for Special Delivery by 1 pm for items posted from today Thursday 19th March*

Note the suspension does not currently apply to SD9am which is used far less and would not be as impacted by resourcing issues as SD1pm. You can still use SD1pm and the loss/damage cover remains,

but not the time guarantee. Aside from this modification Royal Mail remains open to collect, process and deliver all items.
