Royal Mail strikes

Please refer to Royal Mail strike updates for up-to-date information regarding further industrial action.

Unfortunately the delays caused by Royal Mail are beyond our control, items posted before, during or in the days after any strike action will be subject to delay. Royal Mail is suspending the regular delivery guarantees while strike action is occurring.

If you urgently require a certificate, we strongly recommend that you arrange to collect it in person from one of our offices.


  • Standard service £11 (5 working days but up to 15 working days in busy periods). This includes 2nd class postage.
  • Priority service £35 (24 working hours) and the price includes 1st class postage. We guarantee that priority service orders will be processed and posted out within 24 working hours but we cannot guarantee when the delivery will be made by Royal Mail. If you urgently require a certificate, we strongly recommend you arrange to collect it in person from one of our offices.

Please allow up to 15 working days before you receive your certificate. If you need the certificate as a matter of urgency then you must use the priority service.
