MUNROLONDON™️ SHIPPING INFORMATION:
10 January 2023 - Royal Mail Cyber Attack
Our current dispatch provider Royal Mail has issued the following statement -
"We’re still experiencing a severe service disruption to International export services following a cyber incident. As a result, we’re still temporarily unable to despatch items to overseas destinations"
As a result this once again means we have had to halt our international parcels for the past week due to this ongoing issue. I can understand how fustrating this must be as a customer and cannot begin to explain how devestating and worrying this is as a company who values our international customer base.
Therefore we have made the decision to move our international parcels over to DHL until this issue is resolved.
We will be offering DHL Express - £25 (1-3 day global express delivery) Fastest of any delivery company globally)
Domestic: 1 working day
Europe: 1 working day
Rest of World: 1 - 3 working days
TBA - DHL Standard World - (To be announced)
Domestic: 1 working day
Europe: 2 - 3 working days
Rest of World: 2 - 6 working days
We hope this helps and wanted to say a huge thank you for your patience and support during these crazy times. These issues are affecting almost every UK business currently and is completely out of our control. We are doing everything we can to resolve this situation and appreciate your patience and understanding.
1st December 2022 - Royal Mail has announced nationwide strikes over the December period. This may result in delayed shipping times as well as tracking information updating slower than usual.
Please bear with us during these times and be rest assured we are doing everything we can to get your order to you as quickly as possible.
We really appreciate your patience and thank you for supporting MUNROLONDON.
ORDER TRACKING NOT SHOWING? OR SHOWING AS EXPECTED?
No, its not Christmas yet and already we are experiencing the usual issues plus some new ones. Postal strikes in the UK are affecting all business and brands and we want to keep you guys in the loop wherever possible. I feel forced to write this to show some of the totally wrong and sneaky ways that Royal Mail operate, since we moved to using them exclusively for our parcels and packets.
We have had an important (time sensitive) order recently which was sent by Tracked 24 and still shows as ‘sender despatching item’ with the following text;
- This item is on its way to Royal Mail.
- The sender has advised they’ve despatched your item to us.
- The sender has advised us they’re preparing your item. More information will be available when we receive it.
The above would be fine if it was accurate or true. What it actually means is;
- The postman has collected your item but hasnt scanned it which is normal for a Business, and its been unloaded at the depot, where it is sat waiting to be scanned and put ‘into the network’.
- Royal Mail are so busy because of the strikes, so we havent got around to scanning it into the network making it late.
But – a customer (you guys) see a message saying that we are ‘preparing your item’! This is rightfully frustrating, but believe me – we are as frustrated as you. A staff member confirmed that this practice is standard to ensure mail delivery delays dont affect the performance of Royal Mail as a whole.
So, we are looking into using a courier once more for our larger items, and if your parcels have been affected by the shoddiness of the UK’s national postage ‘service’ I apologise. We will always aim to do better.

Refusing Customs & Duties -

When importing items outside of the UK, this will always incur a customs inspection which we always provide the correct paperwork for.
