    By Josh Bethell , December 19, 2018 - Leave a comment

    Christmas is almost upon us and so we wish all a happy time and merry festivities. Christmas Day falls early in the week this year and Clove will be closed for all the standard UK bank holidays and weekends.

    Staff will be present throughout the holiday period to respond to email queries & social media posts. The phone lines will though be closed for the majority of this holiday period.

    Logistics make shipping international orders challenging over this time. Our usual delivery estimates are often inaccurate. As such we will not be shipping international orders between Saturday 22nd December and January 1st.

    Last day for orders & shipping:

    Friday 21st December

    We will be open as usual on Friday and dispatching items via all our usual courier services. International orders sent this late are unlikely to arrive before Christmas, although if you’re in western Europe, a DHL or FedEx package might arrive on Christmas Eve.

    Royal Mail Special Delivery for UK orders is guaranteed next working day. Royal Mail has pledged to get orders dispatched on Friday delivered for Monday. If you order from us and no delivery is recorded on Monday, please be ready to contact us after Christmas, so we can refund your shipping costs and claim with Royal Mail.

    UK Courier (DPD) shipments should also arrive on Monday, however, no such official guarantee is in place.

    Saturday 22nd December: CLOSED

    Sunday 23rd December: CLOSED

    Monday 24th December: No orders shipping. Staff answering email queries & social media contact. Phone lines closed.

Since finishing his studies he has remained at Clove in a full time position, involved in sales, returns and social media. Involved with both consumer electronics and software since the mid 2000s, keeping up to date with industry developments is as much a hobby as it is a job. Easy going but never afraid to share an opinion, Josh can often be found in his spare time listening to some heavy rock or at a local gig as well as playing with the latest gadgets and video games.
