Good news everyone we now deliver on Sundays!

Homecare Essentials are now accepting Sunday deliveries as well as

a new lower cost Saturday delivery rate thanks to DPD .



We are excited to have this option for our customers to use this service as we are always looking into ways to improve and make our online stores more convenient for the customers.


DPD is the first UK carrier to provide a nationwide express Sunday delivery service for all its customers.

From launch, DPD will have the ability to deliver to over 98% of the UK population on a Sunday and the service will include DPD’s award winning one hour Predict timeslot deliveries, where parcel recipients are notified by text or email of their one hour delivery timeslot in advance, and can then track their driver in real-time all the way to their front door.


Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO said; “I’m delighted to be able to announce our new Sunday service. We know from talking to retailers and recipients that there is a real demand for Sunday deliveries.”


“Saturday has long been the busiest retail day of the week, but with the blurring of the offline and online retail boundaries it can now also be the busiest day for e-tailers. Therefore it is very appealing for e-tailers to be able to offer next-day delivery for those customers who buy on a Saturday.”


“The launch of DPD’s one hour timeslot service Predict was a game-changer for the delivery market. Now customers are far less tolerant of having to wait in all day for a standard courier to turn up. But the market has moved on and shoppers want immediate delivery, seven days a week. Predict gives you complete control over when and where your parcel is delivered – from the initial notification on your smartphone on Saturday evening, to tracking the driver to your door or being able to relay alternative instructions to him in real-time. As a result, I think most people will see this kind of smart Sunday delivery service as an excellent addition to their options.”

Good for both your taste buds and your health

Olives are not only a delicacy, they are also extremely good for you. This is why cardiovascular disease is much rarer in the Mediterannean than in Central Europe. If nothing else, this effect can be traced back to an increased consumption of olives: it provides some evidence that oleic acid provides increased protection against arteriosclerosis.
Moreover, the flesh of the olive fruit is rich in many of the “good” monounsaturated fatty acids. These lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Olives are also rich in vitamin E which boosts the immune system.
