Great to use the service and will use it again. However it was a surprise to receive it when I did. I elected 7 May for the delivery and made arrangements to stay in as the time frame given was between 9-5! Imagine my surprise to receive it on 3 May. Glad I was in! And I was very happy to get it early.
