Pros and Cons of the various shipping methods

Advantages Disadvantages

UK - 1st Class Recorded Delivery:

It's cheaper. Although this is a signed-for service, there are no real guarantees regarding delivery timescales with this type of postal service. Delivery can take up to 3 or so days.
Parcels sent by this method are treated as normal post items. 
*Only available for orders up to £40.00 in total.

UK - Weekday Special Delivery (Monday to Friday):

A Signed-For service - Delivery guaranteed on weekdays - Barcode tracking - Priority treatment - Parcels are delivered the day after we dispatch them. It's more expensive than Recorded Delivery.

UK - SATURDAY Special Delivery:

A signed-for service. Delivery is guaranteed on Saturday mornings. Useful if you are out at work in the week, or you can't have a parcel delivered to a work address during the week. It's a little more expensive than weekday (Monday to Friday) delivery.

UK - Weekday Special Delivery by 9am:

A signed-for service. Delivery is guaranteed by 9AM any weekday morning. Useful if you require your parcel to arrive first thing in the morning or maybe before you leave for work. It's more expensive.

9AM service is not available in remote parts of Scotland, Orkney Islands or Shetland Islands, and the Isle of Wight

Overseas Airmail - International Signed-For:

It's cheaper. Transit times can be up to 14 days (this is on top of our standard order turnaround times) or sometimes even longer. Tracking is limited and once the parcel is passed to the destination country's postal service tracking can be problematical.

International Courier Service:

Parcels are traceable at all points on the journey and delivery times are much shorter, between just 2 and 7 days depending on the country of destination (for example, USA is 1 to 2 days). Parcels must be signed-for upon receipt.
Reliable when you need to be certain items will arrive in a specific timescale or when delivery address is in a more remote location.
It's more expensive.
