An update for our customers (31 December 2020)
A combination of Brexit and Covid19 continue to cause some shipping delays, however we are working with our factory to increase production times in order to keep the maximum lead time for your order to 12 weeks.
As mentioned in a previous update, container shipping costs have increased dramatically in the final quarter of 2020, and these increases appear likely to be maintained into the first quarter of 2021.
We here at Shutterplus have decided to absorb these extra shipping cost on all orders received up to February 26th 2021 when we will re-visit the situation once again.
Chinese New Year - Each year during February, factories close for their annual holiday, and this closure will add 3-4 weeks to our standard lead time.
Orders for diy shutters placed by Jan 6th 2021 will have a 10-11 week lead time, while orders placed between January 7th and February 26th will have an approximate lead time of 13-14 weeks.
Shipping Delays An update for our customers (12 December 2020)
Due to a combination of factors including Covid-19, Brexit and extreme UK port congestion, our containers are experiencing significant delays.
As a result, our normal lead time of 10-12 weeks for standard shutters has increased to approximately 14 weeks until further notice.
This slowdown in worldwide shipping has led to a shortage of containers for factories to load and space on board vessels is now at a premium, resulting in the cost of shipping doubling and in some cases tripling. Read article here
