Severe Weather Conditions Causing Delivery Delays

IMPORTANT: 2011 Christmas Shopping Dates can be found here

Whilst some of us are enjoy the current weather conditions, ideal for walking in the countryside, however we have heard a few moans and groans about the snowy weather conditions. Even from our delivery partners. Anyway I’m loving the weather and hope you are too but we need to tell you about some possible delays in delivery of orders.

Most of the UK is currently under severe weather warning for “wintery conditions” and as such the Royal Mail and Parcel Force, our delivery partners, have issues warnings that some deliveries may experience delays.

We would ask all customers to allow for such delays before contacting our team as we are unable to speed up deliveries delayed by weather.

Furthermore we would ask all customers ordering with the intention of a pre-christmas delivery (i.e. Christmas Gifts) order any products as far in advance as possible. In doing so we hope to reduce customer stress as the weather conditions look set to be “wintery” until at least the new year, meaning delays in postage should be expected.

CheapTents will keep you up to date with any further changes to delivery times.

  • Due to recent snow fall and other weather conditions some areas of scotland, northern ireland and wales are suffering from some delays.
  • RoyalMail (we are assured) are doing as much as they can to ensure deliveries are made.

with thanks to @RoyalMail for various updates
