We have had to put up the costs of our postage as from Monday 30th April. The Royal Mail has increased their costs by more than 20% in most cases. We still send out our usual pre-paid/addressed box but now do it with 2nd class mail; this rarely takes longer than 1st class mail in our own tests. You can opt for first class if you wish but there is a £2 surcharge for this. Recorded and special delivery is still options and have gone up in line with their charges (£7 and £15 respectively). For interest the cost of a box to send 1st class 5 years ago was 69pence it is now £2.36!We have absorbed the costs every year but we have had to bow down this time and make some changes.
We will of course continue to offer all the same services as usual.
