Still delivering for Christmas

It’s been a busy few days here at HH-HQ, with the volumes of parcels which we send increasing massively during the past week. It’s exciting to see the mounds of parcels waiting for the UPS van, and the trolleys full of sacks of Royal Mail parcels. There are so many that both UPS and Royal Mail are collecting from us several times each day so that they’re not overwhelmed by the volumes of parcels.

We work with both our carriers to ensure that the parcels make it to their destinations – it’s busy, and both have had delays in a few places, but the parcels are making their way through the sytems and being delivered.
Now that Christmas is getting very close, we are running out of days to get your parcels to you, so here’s a HH top tip…
Get your parcel delivered to a UPS Access Point.

UPS have been increasing the number of their Access Points this year – there are loads of them about, mostly (although not always!) located in a shop local to you. The idea is that UPS deliver the parcel to the access point during the day, and you collect it when you receive notification that it’s arrived, and pick it up at a time to suit you, which saves you waiting around for it to be delivered to your home. The Access Points are generally open early in the morning until evening.

If you fancy trying a UPS Access Point, place your order as normal at, select “Next Working Day” delivery, and specify “Access Point Please” in the comment section at checkout.

We’ll choose your nearest Access Point (or you can tell us which one suits you), and the parcel will be waiting for you.

Find your Access Point here:

Orders processed before 1530 Friday will be sent out on Friday for delivery:

“Next Working Day” = Monday 22nd
“Standard Delivery” = …not guaranteed before Christmas.
