Placed an order on Friday night 7:30pm and paid the £4.99 for next day tracked delivery. Got an email today at 3:30pm saying my order has been despatched via Royal Mail without a tracking service. I wonder if will arrive via Royal Mails new Sunday service? Any thoughts?
Has anyone had a delivery from CRC on a Sunday?
I'm sure if you order Friday then next day is Monday. No delivery is a Sunday
Don't think you will get it to Wednesday as it is a bank holiday on Monday so will not enter RM network to Tuesday
Monday is a Bank Holiday???
Next Day doesn't include Saturday or Sunday.
Strange men in bowler hats marched today so bank holiday moved to Monday
No. Slightly peeved as I ordered on Fri with "next day" delivery. I should have known but the checkout didn"t have any T"s and C"s that I could see, so took a punt thinking I"d get it on Saturday. Tracked delivery confirmed for Monday, and on the RM site it gives you the terms for the service CRC use )it only tells you the actual service in the despatch confirmation.
Haven't used CRC in ages.
Ordered something on Friday from them - and also contacted them about a missing warranty replacement mech
Used standard delivery on the order
Both turned up on Saturday - warranty item 'signed for'
Probably doesn't make you feel any better but at least you know it'll arrive on Monday
EDIT: I'd ordered on Friday morning. Not even with the best will in the world will a 7:30pm order get despatched for Saturday.
Thanks guys for your comments.
Got this in an email from CRC at 15:35 on Saturday:-

I know Royal Mail have extended collection times on Saturdays and Sundays to allow the big Internet companies such as Chain Reaction Cycles to get weekend orders delivered on a Monday. I also know that Royal Mail have started a Sunday delivery service as a trial across the UK at 100 of their sorting centres. I wondered if it was possible for a Sunday delivery to the holiday cottage we are staying at near Dalby Forest. Mrs Jamie managed to wreck a front brake disk.......so she is desperate for a replacement.
I take the point that is is public holiday in Northern Ireland on 14 July.....so I guess my worst delivery date will be Wednesday but maybe by some miracle my package might appears today or Monday or Tuesday.....my frustration is I paid £4.99 for a next day tracked service and currently I don't when it will arrive !!!!!!
Couldn't she walk into a bike shop if she was desperate?
Tried loads of bike shops but none have a replacement shimano XT 160mm diameter disk back end of this week before they can get one in......we are heading home then.
