A Quick Piece Of Advice

As you know COVID 19 is creating havoc around the world. Our postal systems are processing unseen amounts of post as quickly & as efficiently as they can.

Winter is also among us, so couple that with never before seen postal volumes, COVID 19, the flu, staff shortages & stormy weather, it is natural that all postal services will experience some delays.

So we highly recommend that you shop early to give your order enough time to get through any delays in your area & be with you on time for Christmas.

The best way to track your orders for all postal carriers is through a website called 17Track. It will show you the detailed history of your package, no matter the carrier used or the country you are in.

Save yourself the frustration and anger by using 17Track instead of calling the carriers track & trace phone lines. It will give you the same information as the telephone agents & save you from having a meltdown listening to screeching violin hold music.
