Signed For

Whilst our standard postage service will get your item to its destination, there are occasions when only a premium choice will do. Our range of premium postage options allow you to have tracking, compensation or an express delivery option added to them.

Our Signed For premium service offers added security as it requires the recipient to sign for the item on delivery.

Why choose Signed For?  

  • Proof of delivery including a signature from the recipient 
  • Check online when your item has been delivered
  • Includes compensation cover up to £30 in the unlikely event of loss or damage* 

The postage rate you pay will be calculated by the format, weight of item and destination of the item, with the additional price of the Signed For option shown below.

Adverse weather may impact on next day services as they are reliant on mail plane arrival and departure.

We are unable to guarantee next day delivery, however for the best chance of next day delivery use our Courier service, available online or over the counter. Alternatively, consider our Tracked & Signed service, with an expected next day delivery. Due to customs import restrictions, we are unable to guarantee next day delivery of goods or merchandise to the UK. In addition, please note that adverse weather may impact on services as they are reliant on mail plane arrival and departure.

It is very difficult to provide exact delivery timescales to off-island addresses as there are so many factors outside of Jersey Post's control e.g. weather, transport delays, processing in the destination country etc. However, as a rough guide we say: UK, other Channel Islands and Isle of Man - 3-5 working days. European addresses - 7-10 working days and Rest of World destinations up to 10-12 working days. Please note - these timescales are for letters and documents. Due to Customs restrictions and controls in other countries it is impossible to provide delivery estimates for goods or merchandise.
