Christmas and New Year Holiday Schedule 2017

 
 

 
 

Deposit payments and box orders

The last despatch of boxes from our depot will be on Wednesday, 20 December and will resume again on Tuesday, 2 January. You may continue to place orders over the holiday period but orders will not be despatched until after our return to work.

Last Dates For Collection

Same day collection will not be possible during this peak season. Bookings for collection should be made no later than 15:00 the working day prior to your required collection day. Effective from Friday, 1 December.

International Destinations.

Air Freight

We suggest the last collection date for the majority of destinations is Monday, 4 December.
Please contact us for specific information for your destination.

Surface or Sea Freight

We will be loading on Friday, 15 December and if you wish to meet this departure the last collection date is Tuesday, 12  December.  This to meet a ship leaving the UK week commencing 18 December.

Loading will be strictly in order of receipt in our depot, so if you do leave it until the last moment, yours will be the last cargo loaded and we can offer no guarantee that your goods will be shipped should the container be full.  It is also the busiest time of year for the courier companies who do our collections and problems are more common than is usual, so again we recommend you do not leave collection until the last possible day, if something then does go wrong there is a much bigger problem than there otherwise would be. Collection requests must be received by 15:00hrs the working day before collection.

The last collection before the holiday will be on Tuesday, 19 December, these goods will meet the departure expected in January. Collections will resume on Wednesday, 3 January (excluding Scotland - 4 January).

European Destinations.

The last collection for European Destinations are shown on the schedule below, this gives enough time for the goods to reach their destination before the Christmas close down, we believe it is much better for the boxes to be safely with you rather than sitting in a transit warehouse waiting for the courier companies to start work again.   While collection on the final date doesn't guarantee delivery before Christmas it should work in most cases.

To book collection complete step 3 in the registered user area of VOOVit.com.  As this is the busiest time of year for couriers collection requests must be received by 15:00hrs the working day before collection, problems with collections are more common than is usual, so again we recommend you do not leave collection until the last possible day, if something then does go wrong there is a much bigger problem than there otherwise would be.

The last collections for moves within the UK will be on Monday, 18 December, this gives enough time for the goods to reach their destination before the Christmas close down, we believe it is much better for the boxes to be safely with you rather than sitting in a transit warehouse waiting for the courier companies to start work again.   While collection on the 18th doesn't guarantee delivery before Christmas it should work in most cases.
