Certificates in 5 Days (C5D) has been around since 1999 and during that time has established a reputation for being reliable and efficient as well as easy and friendly to deal with. Besides supplying your certificates, I'd be happy to look at any brickwalls that might need knocking down, although I can't promise to do that.
This is the Scottish aspect of the well known C5D English Service. The system in Scotland is considerably different than that of England and Wales. The entries contain more information, but the downside is that they are more expensive and take longer to be issued. Usually about a fortnight.
Certificates in 5 Days. Obviously I can't get them to your letter box in that time, but I can normally scan or transcribe them to the <in box> of your e mail address, so if speed of information appeals to you, then read on !
Certificates are obtained by me.
On receipt by me, they are scanned or a transcription e mailed to you. It's your choice. The default option is a scan.
The entries are then posted by air mail to you. The usual delivery time is about a week or so after the scan.
There are occasional GROS delays which prevent me achieving this timeframe and I shall then scan the entries to you on the day of receipt by me.
The GROS advertise any delays on their website.If you do not want a hard copy certificate, I can get you a computer print out at a reduced cost.
Other services may appear cheaper, but often exclude fees for postage and packing, and most will not scan the certificates as they come through.

The preferred method of payment is by credit card and if you adopt this method the cost is £ 18. If I already hold your credit card details, then a simple e mail will suffice. Otherwise, please complete the Secure Order Form which will take you to the Paypal web site to make payment. If you would prefer me not to hold your credit card details, please complete this Order Form which will take you to Paypal's Secure Web Page. Otherwise, payment by Paypal is fine and there is a secure shopping cart lower down the page. I am happy to accept a personal cheque in your currency, but I do incur a commission for this. The cost of certificates per cheque is the equivalent of £ 18.00 (please use the exchange rate calculator below) BUT there is a commission of £ 5 per order, not certificate, for these types of orders. A credit card or Paypal is therefore much cheaper. Once I have acknowledged your order, this cannot be cancelled as I pay for the certificates prior to their receipt. Nor is there any refund available for the same reason.
All transactions are processed in sterling at £ 18.00 on receipt of your order.
