Royal Mail have withdrawn their Special Delivery guarantee whilst they work to clear the backlog caused by the recent bad weather. Any mail sent via the Special Delivery service will still given priority but cannot currently be guaranteed to arrive on the next working day. During this time customers will be unable to claim for delayed mail under the normal Special Delivery guidelines. PC2Paper are continuing to offer the Special Delivery option on the website but customers should be advised that this should be treated as a priority delivery option rather than a guaranteed next day service.This applies to all Special Delivery items posted after the 1st of December.

Although PC2Paper is now able to pass mail into the postal system as normal, customers should be aware that bad weather continues to cause delays in many areas. All mail is currently taking longer be delivered due to a backlog caused by the extremely bad snow and in some areas there have been no mail deliveries for up to 7 days.

PC2Paper relies on the good services that Royal Mail provide and an essential part of this is our business collection. With the recent bad weather, however, our local area has been completely cut off. 15 inches of snow have meant no Royal Mail collections for three days causing a huge backlog of mail and with a fourth day of no collections we decided it was time to take drastic action to get the mail to the sorting office. With no post offices open and no way of driving in the dreadful conditions our dedicated staff decided the only way to get the mail out was to walk to the sorting office. We donned our boots, gloves and hats and struggled out each with several sacks of mail slung over each shoulder. After a gruelling 4 mile walk through knee deep snow and freezing conditions the mail was finally passed to the nearest sorting office and we are pleased to say we have now managed to clear the backlog. We are hoping that weather conditions will improve over the next few days and that service will soon return to normal but feel a big thanks is in order to our staff who went the extra mile.

We are currently experiencing extremely heavy snow which is causing delays to all UK mail. We regret that at this time there are no business collections or deliveries in the area of our UK based printing station meaning we are currently unable to pass mail to the postal service. All mail will remain queued until the weather conditions improve. We apologise for this situation which is due to circumstances beyond our control. All letters will be sent as soon as we are able to do so.

We are currently unable to guarantee delivery times for letters due to the fact that we are currently experiencing extremely bad snow causing disruption to both our business collections and deliveries in the UK. We will still pass mail into the postal system as soon as we are able to do so but customer should expect delays to all mail.
