How do you do it?

I take it all back! Boring, predictable service.

We ordered a zig-zag on 'Black Friday' afternoon, received an email this morning to say

"Your F R Jones and Son order will be delivered today between 12:56-13:56 "

and thought it was something else. What are you guys on and what the hell are the delivery guys driving.

Going to have a happy climber monday morning!

Just exceptional, but we now expect our next order to arrive the same day

Delivered by Lewis Hamilton?

Either that or the FR Jones 'precogs' predicted your order

Same here. I took advantage of the cheap zigzag, expecting it to be delivered sometime next week only to the have to explain what I've been spending my money on to the wife when it popped through the letterbox at lunchtime!

Yes, I have also found myself in same situation with embarrassingly quick deliveries - even to France.

Sometimes my CC wont work due to our address, they call back next day & Im not around, doh!
