Last Posting Dates For Christmas

By AK Support

Well Christmas is slowly creeping up on us and we want to make sure everyone gets their presents on Christmas day. We have made a comprehensive list below of the posting dates as supplied by our couriers, any orders made before 2pm on this date should reach you in time. There's no 100% guarantee and we do suggest you place your order leaving plenty of time for delivery, as adverse weather and parcels getting lost happen a lot more at Christmas.

If you need something the very next day in the UK we have our special "Next Day Shipping" product.
