  • News - NEW 1.99 Next Day Delivery Service!

    Hi Guys,

    As we continue our quest in 2013 to bring you new exciting features and changes to the way you shop here at Aria, as of this morning you can now order items from us for 1.99 (+VAT) and get them (usually) the next working day!

    Rules to this:
    1. Only applies to items under 30*
    2. Large items are not eligible
    3. Must be less than 750gms


    That's it.

    While we know our usual DPD next day delivery service with text and email notification is still 6.95+ for everything else (unless ordering outside mainland UK), we hope you guys can make use of this service for smaller items. Previously, you had to pay either 3.99+ or even 6.95+VAT for items that were not worth the high delivery charge. However, this should resolve those issues.

    Rather than give you this option and make you wait 2-3 or even 3-5 working days like some of our competitors (and make you pay more than what we are charging now), we are sending them out using the Royal Mail 24-hour service for just 1.99 (plus VAT).

    Eligible products include RAM, cables, accessories for HDD/SSD/Cases, Networking products, cooling products, cheap Graphics Cards, cheap HDDs & SSDs, USB Pen drives, SD cards, mice, small keyboards, mouse mats, card readers, print cartridges, software, sound cards etc etc.

    You may find that some items are under 30 for example and you would expect 1.99 delivery, but due to the packaging used for that product from the manufacturer, "X" item may not be eligible.

    Moreover, the 30* limit isn't set in stone. You may find items that are over 30 (but under 40) that can still be shipped for 1.99 next day. Have a browse around the website for those lucky products.

    So that's it guys. We introduced DPD, we gave you Amazon Payments, and now we have a cheap next day delivery service for small low value items.

    That's not it though.. Many more changes still to come...


    UPDATE:
    Hi Guys,

    This is a quick update regarding delivery costs to Ireland (North & ROI).

    We have updated the website to allow our NEW 1.99 Next Day Delivery Service to be eligible for Northern Ireland customers too! For more information about our new service, please visit this LINK. This still complies to the same 30, no large item and 750gms limit. This is usually a 24-hour service to Nortern Ireland but please allow 2 working days just in case!

    Our DPD 2-Day service is still 11.95 to Northern Ireland, as well as our service to ROI at 26.95. We do realise these costs are quite high at the moment but we are working to bring this down. Please be patient in this matter as we will update you in due course. This is just a message to say, don't worry..(!) We are listening to our friends in Ireland. We will have some more news soon.

            Guessing this is RM24 hour (tracked?) - nice one! TBH all you need to do is drop the delivery charges a little lower for forum members and super specials

                  I think that will currently go via the usual DPD route by default.

                      Awesome news, and an excellent idea all round

                      Might be worth replacing the picture of a Large Box (large items do not apply) with a Jiffy bag so people don't get the wrong impression?
