Coronavirus: Changes to service

Signing for and receiving items

In order to protect both delivery staff and customers as much as possible, postal carriers are minimising contact during delivery.  They will not be handing over hand-held devices to capture signatures but instead log the name of the person accepting the item.  Additionally, for all customers where they need to deliver any item that won’t fit through your letterbox, they will place your item at your door. Having knocked on your door, they will then step aside to a safe distance while you retrieve your item. This will ensure your item is delivered securely rather than being left outside.
