What is a Standard Working Day
Standard Working Days for delivery are Monday to Friday. Ordering on a Friday morning before 13:00 on a 'guaranteed next working day delivery' means that your parcel will not be delivered until Monday, as this is the next standard working day. If you require your parcel on a Saturday, you need to place your order before 13:00 on a Friday and choose the specific 'Saturday delivery' option at checkout. If you order after 13:00 on a Friday your parcel will not be despatched until Monday which, will arrive Tuesday if 'guaranteed next working day delivery' is chosen or later if 'standard delivery' is chosen.
Certain areas in Scotland require 2-4 working days to deliver, therefore priority delivery services are unavailable in these areas.
