After ordering, how long does delivery take?
At PC Specialist every computer is custom assembled to your requirements. We have a finite number of employees but our order backlog changes daily.
Based on our backlog we can estimate the average lead times on new orders placed. When considering our estimated lead times it is important to
consider that some orders will be delivered quicker than this, but also that other orders will be delivered slower than this. Delivery times vary
based on the components you select when ordering.
What are the current lead times?
We are currently working to the following lead times:
|Desktop PCs:||Estimated 9 to 11 working days|
|Laptops:||Estimated 7 to 9 working days|
Christmas delivery no longer guaranteed.
If I place an order today, when can I expect my computer?
If you order a desktop computer today and the payment is confirmed, based on the lead times above we estimate that the average order will be dispatched by Thursday 6th June 2013. This is not a guarantee but a guidance date for your reference only, and will only apply if your order is processed today. Orders placed under a finance agreement or by bank transfer will not be processed until we confirm the payment.
