COVID-19 – Update – 18th May 2020

Heeelo Dearest ProtoPIC ers

As you may have heard the Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to spread and we want to let you know that our thoughts are with each of you during this time. It is critical that we all take care of each other during this highly trying time.

We want to assure you that ProtoPIC is still operational, and that all orders are going out daily as usual.

That said, Royal Mail are experiencing some delays. Most parcels are still arriving in 1-2 days, but some are taking 3 days. We appreciate your patience during this challenging time, but equally please reach out to us if you have any concerns. DPD is currently running at 1-2 days instead of the normal next day guarantee.

The only other issue we are seeing is delays with customs. We are working hard to mitigate this situation, and will do our best to keep us stocked and you informed.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe people.

Yours Sincerely

The ProtoPIC Team
