As you can imagine Christmas is one of our busiest times here at Basketsgalore. We also operate the rest of the year round, when customers can pick a “preferred delivery date”. At Christmas we have to narrow this down to a “preferred delivery week”. Other hamper companies remove this option altogether, and you are only allowed to pick December or Christmas delivery.
We do our best to accommodate your preferred week in December, but with thousands of hampers being dispatched each day I’m sure you can understand why we can’t guarantee specific delivery days or weeks.
Courier companies also get swamped with deliveries during the Christmas Season, so even if parcels are sent on a 24-hour service, we ask that customers understand that delivery can take a little longer than during the rest of the year.
Although you may be tempted to pick a delivery date as close to Christmas as possible, we advise picking slightly earlier dates to make sure your gift arrives on time. Sometimes the recipients may not be at home to sign for the parcel, and then they may take a few days to ring up & ask for re-delivery. Don’t worry about the best before dates on food items, they will all have a long enough shelf life to be fresh for Christmas.
