Well, what a Christmas it was – one like we’ve never seen before and may never see again. You wonderful lot kept the Meat in the Box team busy over the festive season and for that we are so thankful. We’re also so very grateful that you allowed us to be a part of your celebrations. Now 2021 is here and we’ve got a few bits and bobs of exciting news to share with you.
Meet our New Courier: DPD
Overall, we were pretty happy with the service provided by FedEx. However, we simply had too many delivery issues, which didn’t meet the high standards of service that we’re aiming for at Meat in the Box. Also, one of the biggest drawbacks was the open delivery window of 9 am – 6 pm. This really didn’t give our customers much guidance on when to expect their delivery. With DPD, all orders will receive a delivery window of 1 to 2 hours on the morning of delivery. We feel this will be an invaluable feature for our past present and future customers.
Saturday Delivery is Back for 2021!
Initially, we began meat in the box with Saturday delivery. However, partway through the year FedEx drastically bumped up the pricing. This meant we had to remove the Saturday delivery service. Most importantly, we see the Saturday delivery option as a vital service. Particularly, for those that are unable to accept midweek deliveries and so have been eager to reintroduce it for some time. Whilst the courier charges are still much higher for this premium service we feel that we have found a good balance with pricing Saturday delivery at £6.99. We’ll continue to work with DPD on ways that we can get this figure down over time.
In conclusion, you can start shopping now and select Saturday Delivery during checkout.
