Royal Mail (Special Delivery Next Day)
(United Kingdom only - rates effective from 4th April 2011)

Although it is more expensive, we would recommend Special Delivery Next Day where applicable. As delivery is guaranteed by 1.00 pm on the day following despatch, parcels are kept separate from the mass of items, making them (we feel) less likely to incur damage. Also, parcels are covered against loss
