Special Delivery on a Saturday is introduced by Isle of Man Post 22 September 2006

For the first time, Isle of Man Post Office now enables you to send your special letter or gift on a Friday using Special Delivery, with the guarantee it will arrive at its destination on the Saturday.

Special Delivery on a Saturday is in addition to the current Monday to Friday service already offered by Isle of Man Post Office.

Special Delivery is a must if you want to send urgent or valuable items and there are two services to choose from.

You can have your packages delivered by 9am or 1pm the next working day (Monday – Saturday, with the exception of Sundays and public/bank holidays) or your money back*

Cheaper than most couriers – prices start from £4.10 for by 1pm delivery and £8.95 for by 9am delivery.

Items receive separate fast and secure handling and are fully tracked and traced from dispatch to final destination using a unique barcode. New electronic proof of delivery allows customers to confirm delivery of their item by viewing the signature of the person who accepted the item using the internet.

Three compensation levels for loss or damage to chose from up to £2,500.

Proof of delivery provides a copy of the delivery signature available free online.

*Some limitations on geographical coverage apply. Terms and Conditions apply.

Mrs Pamela M Crowe, MLC, Chairman of Isle of Man Post Office, said

“I think this service will be very popular with our customers as Saturday is the one day in the week that everyone is at home and for a small premium they will be guaranteed delivery with full proof of delivery details.” She added: “This enhancement to our Special Delivery service follows requests from our customers to introduce the service on a Saturday. We are confident the introduction of a Saturday delivery, both on and off the Island, will be a bonus to everyone who wishes to guarantee arrival of their item at the weekend.”


Please note the Saturday guarantee is not available for items sent to banks, building societies, travel agents, jewellers and post offices.

Special Delivery guarantee on a Saturday costs an extra £2

The majority of signatures will be available within 48 hours of delivery of the item and all signatures will be available within 72 hours. (Please note this is not always the person the item was addressed to).
