Royal Mail Christmas Delivery Cutoff Dates 2012

All orders at Rigu are posted out around the world via the Royal Mail. Perhaps in future more shipping options will be added but for now this provides a swift and reliable service. I know it’s early to be thinking about Christmas cutoff dates, but I thought it best to get this information in place sooner rather than later. The following information is taken directly from the Royal Mail website and are to be treated as a guideline rather than a hard and fast rule as to the last times that you can place an order at Rigu (or other online stores). Rigu offers the following shipping methods, free (Royal Mail 2nd class), free ‘Recorded Signed For’ (Recorded 2nd class), First Class, and Recorded First Class. All European and International orders go via Airmail Services.

Thursday 13 December Standard and Mail Order Return Parcels
Tuesday 18 December Second Class and Recorded Signed Forâ„¢
Thursday 20 December First Class and Recorded Signed Forâ„¢

International Airmail
Wednesday 5 December Asia, Australia, Far East (including Japan), New Zealand
Friday 7 December Africa, Caribbean, Central America, Middle East and South America
Monday 10 December Canada, Eastern Europe and USA
Wednesday 12 December Western Europe

I will be going to the Post Office each day at around 4pm meaning that orders will be shipped out on the same day if the order is placed before 3pm.
