As you are no doubt all aware, the Royal Mail strikes are going ahead, starting from today. The strikes are scheduled for today and tomorrow, however, the CWU has confirmed that further strike action will take place if no agreement has been reached.

With this in mind, please note the current changes which have been implemented with regards to My Little Customs delivery. When shopping at you will have the following options:

For orders under £25.

The postage options at checkout now comprise of:

Royal Mail First Class and Interlink Express Courier.

Royal Mail First Class will NOT be shipped until at least next week, please note this is subject to change and is dependant on the impact the current strikes have on backlogs and deliveries. I shall continue to update anyone who chooses the Royal Mail options via email with regards to postal dates.

I HIGHLY advise you use our new courier service which will be provided by Interlink Express. A set charge of £4.50 will applied at checkout. This is cheaper than Royal Mail Special Delivery and will be guaranteed Next Day Delivery before 3pm Monday – Friday.

Interlink Express is fully trackable and requires a signature upon delivery. You may leave a note for the courier driver such as “please leave with neighbour” or “please leave in a safe place” however;  this cannot be guaranteed and will be down to the delivery driver’s discretion.

By choosing Interlink Express, you are guaranteed to avoid all Royal Mail disruptions as they are an indepedent company, in no way linked to Royal Mail.

The added bonus is that Interlink Express is CHEAPER than Royal Mail Special Delivery 😀

All orders placed before 4pm, Monday to Friday, will be sent same day. Any orders placed after this time will be sent the following working day.

For international orders, although minimal disruption will be caused, there may be a small delay and AirSure (signed for) is recommended.

For orders over £25

Orders with a value over £25 will be sent via Interlink Express at no extra charge. Should you wish to have your order sent via Royal Mail, please contact me.

Thank you for your patience during this disruptive period, I am working hard to ensure you will get your orders, Royal Mail strikes or no Royal Mail strikes!
