The Delivery process

A one hour delivery time slot will be allocated by the courier, this is sent via text or E-Mail so please ensure that you provide both. If the time and day is suitable no further action by you is required. If it’s not convenient there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You can change your delivery date, arrange to leave your parcel somewhere safe at the delivery address, deliver it to your neighbor, drop it off at your local shop, or go to the depot to pick it up. All of these amendments can be made via the courier’s communications. On the day your order dispatches your goods you will receive e-mail/text notification from the courier confirming that the items have been dispatched.
