Royal Mail Tracked 48
We use the Royal Mail Tracked 48 service. Royal Mail state parcels on this service are normally delivered within 2 working days but on occasions may take longer. Please note Royal Mail does not class Sunday as a working day and at Sports Fitness we dispatch orders Monday – Friday.
Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels are either sent with “signature” or “no signature”. If the product total is less than £30 the order will be dispatched with “no signature”. All orders above £30 will be sent with “signature”.
If your order is sent Royal Mail Tracked 48 “no signature” the postman will try and deliver it to you and will not require any signature. If no one is home they will try and post it through your letter box. If they are unable to deliver the parcel they will leave a Royal Mail card advising if your parcel has been left with a neighbour/safe place or if they have returned it to the local Royal Mail delivery depot.
For “no signature” parcels when placing your order you can leave a comment for the postman to leave in a safe place or a certain neighbour. Please note if you request the parcel is left in a safe place Sports Fitness cannot be held responsible for any missing items once the postman has delivered it.
For “Signature” parcels your order will be delivered by the Royal Mail postman who will require a signature. If no one is available to sign for the parcel he will either leave it with a neighbour or return it to the local Royal Mail delivery centre. The postman will leave a card explaining where your order has been left.
Royal Mail Special Delivery
The Royal Mail Special Delivery service is a guaranteed next working day delivery service. Royal Mail will deliver your order by 13.00 the next working day. When the postman delivers your parcel he will require a signature. If no one is available the postman will leave a card advising if the order has been left with a neighbour or returned to the local Royal Mail depot.
Please note for all Special delivery orders you must ensure you place the order on the Sports Fitness website before 14.00 Monday to Friday. If you place an order after 14.00 the order will be dispatched the next working days. For Special delivery orders placed over the weekend the order will be dispatched on the following Monday.
Royal Mail does not guarantee Special Delivery parcels will be delivered on a Saturday. At Sport Fitness we mark all Special Delivery parcels on a Friday as Saturday delivery. In our experience most Special Delivery parcels are delivered on a Saturday as requested.
