Question: What if I am out when the couriers try to deliver my order?
Answer: If you are out when the couriers try to deliver your order, most couriers will try to deliver the next day. Others will leave a card advising you to contact them to re-arrange the delivery.
Question: Do I have to sign for my order?
Answer: We advise that you or someone else thoroughly inspect your order before you sign for it. If this is not possible please sign for it as "unchecked" as signing for goods means that you are accepting that the goods have been delivered in good condition.
If the parcel or the contents of the parcel appear to be damaged on delivery, you should refuse delivery.
If you later find that the goods have been damaged in transit, we would require photographic evidence within 24 hours BEFORE we can consider any replacements or refunds.
Question: Can I request that goods are delivered without a signature?
Answer: You can request that goods are delivered without a signature but if you do, you must take full responsibility if the goods are damaged, stolen or lost. You must leave a signed & dated note advising the couriers that you give permission for them to leave the product in a safe place of your choice, as they use this as proof of delivery.
Question: What if my order arrives damaged?
Answer: As mentioned earlier, your order should be checked thoroughly before you sign for it and if the outer packaging is damaged, the order should be signed for as damaged or refused.
All damages not evident at the time of signing should be reported to us within 24 hours of receipt by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - NOT TELEPHONED. Please ensure that you inform us of the exact damage to the product and if possible attach photographic evidence as this will speed up the process.
