Will the London Olympics affect my delivery?

With the Olympic Games rapidly approaching, you may be wondering how this might affect the delivery of your toys during the London Olympics between July 25th - August 12th this year.

First and foremost, you will be pleased to know that we will not be adding an "Olympic surcharge" to our deliveries, and we will still offer the same 3 levels of service, economy, standard and Next day as usual. Next day timed services (i.e. before 9am) will take priority during the Olympics, but are not guaranteed.

Both Royal Mail and UK Mail are still guaranteeing their Next day services, although Royal Mail have removed the guarantee of delivery before 1pm for special delivery. The change only affects items due for delivery in London, postcode areas E, EC, N, NW, SE, SW, W, WC, during the period from 23 July until 17 September.

Both our carriers have dedicated web pages below, that will tell you everything you need to know about your deliveries during the Olympic Games,

So, hopefully the worst case scenario will be a delay of a day or 2, so if you live in London, then we recommend planning ahead to allow an extra couple of days, and choosing standard or next day delivery if time is of the essence!
