Just reading on another thread about delivery times from online retailers.
So here's our current policy within Ireland (both north and south).
Standard Shipping is 1 -4 working days
Nexy Day delivery (priority shipping) is next working day on orders before 3.30pm. Orders made after 3.30 on a Friday will be dispatched on Monday and delivered Tuesday.
From our experience deliveries have a 99% success rate, however someone does need to be present to sign for the package from the courier.
