The Fish Society > Remote UK postcodes

Remote UK post codes - normally sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery

Please recognise that we ship highly perishable products which - ideally - will reach you within 24 hours of leaving us. Therefore, we regard as 'remote' any address our courier cannot reliably reach by 1pm the day after despatch. For most remote postcodes, we use Royal Mail Special Delivery (RMSD). This is expensive but quite reliable and reaches 99% of remote postcodes by 1pm.


Remotes fall into the following categories. 

- Delivery is by 1pm, but there is a surcharge because we use RMSD.

- Delivery is by 5.30pm. There is a surcharge except for a few addresses marked "courier" below.

The surcharge for RMSD is £5-£15 depending on your basket total. It is shown at the checkout on the page where you select your delivery date. RMSD deliveries must be signed for - otherwise your parcel will go back to the sorting office. Royal Mail Special Delivery to remote post codes relies on aircraft which may be delayed by weather. In such cases, we will not be able to compensate you for late delivery (but normally "one day late" deliveries are fine to put in your freezer).


Orders sent by RMSD may be tracked here. Call us from 4.30pm on the day before delivery for the tracking code.


Our website does not recognise every remote postcode. It's pretty good at postcodes requiring a surcharge. But it does not recognise if your post code cannot be delivered by 1pm. If delivery by 1pm is important to you, please check its availability below or call us. AND CONSIDER setting an earlier delivery date.

This list may not be 100% accurate. If in doubt, call us.
