Early warning – possible postal delays.

1st October 2007 by Denise

We love our posties – the nice men and women at the Royal Mail Post Office. The European postal hub is opposite our office, and MOO even had a special tour when we started trading. We got to see secret underground mail trains and other stuff we’re Not Allowed To Talk About. *wink*

So I’m quite sad to tell you the frustrating news that Royal Mail might be going on strike. The plan is to strike for 4 days, which means
our deliveries in the UK and abroad could be delayed by at least 4 working days. We realise for some of you this isn’t much of a problem – but people wanting stuff urgently, please do take this into account when you order.

We’ll let you know when we get more news. Thanks for your patience.

    Thats a bummer..especially as they seem to be doing an excellent job, my notecards made it to Chicago in 3 business days!

  2. Denise:

    @Alec – see, they’re great when they’re working :) Hopefully the dispute will be over soon… With any luck, before the strike starts!

  3. Stephanie Booth:

    whoops, I hope that won’t affect items that were shipped today! I’d really love to get some extra Mini Cards before the end of FOWA…

  4. Jim:

    Yep – I was hoping to get my minicards for FOWA too. Bummer :-(

  5. Jim:

    S’okay – they’ve arrived – yay! :-)

  8. Kathryn:

    i think the royal mail workers went on strike for my order only. i placed it in August; it never arrived-Moo reprinted and reshipped and now it is October and they’re still not here-the third try that is.

  9. Denise:

    Oh Kathryn, that is awful… I’m really sorry to hear that. Please do try customer services again. It must be possible to get them to you somehow.

  10. Mario:

    My cards got delayed as well. But there finally reached today, and I am very happy! They are really cool. I blogged about it as well, as in Germany not many people know about moo.

    I received the dispatch email from Moo on Oct 8 and still waiting for my 2 packages to come over the water to Canada :( .

  12. Denise:

    @imlou – I’m sorry to hear that – I’ve passed your details on to customer services to see if they can help.

  13. Anna:

    I ordered my Moo cards for my photo business at the end of October and have not gotten them as of yet(the 14th of November). I am in Portland Oregon. Sad as I need them this weekend. Even worse is my account shows no order history. I send an email to Moo, but won’t hear until it is too late for an alternative.

  14. Denise:

    Hi Anna, I’m sorry this has happened. I spoke to customer services today, so you should hear from them soon.
