What happens in the event of...
Nobody at home -
When placing your order, at the checkout you will have the opportunity to provide comments about your delivery. If you would like your parcel left with a neighbour or at the local post office please let us know. Perhaps you have a safe place we can leave the parcel, simply let us know. If no instruction has been left and nobody is at home, our courier will leave a "while you were out card" and take your parcel to the local Post Office for convenient collection. We expect you to have received your despatch confirmation email which includes your parcel tracking number. You will be able to track the progress of delivery and alert us to any issues which may have arisen with your delivery. Please contact us immediately so that we can assist you and ensure your parcel reaches your recipient within the quickest timeframe. Should you not contact us within a reasonable timeframe regrettably we will not be able to take any responsibility for perishable items.
Hospitals & Hotels Delivery -
Our courier will not be able to take your parcel directly to your recipient. Delivery is made to the central delivery point only. The signatory is usually the person responsible for all incoming parcels. Once you have tracked your parcel and obtained signatory confirmation, we advise you contact the hospital or hotel to confirm with them the parcel has been delivered and signed for and request the parcel is delivered to the patient, quoting the ward or room number, as soon as possible. Regrettably we are not able to do this on your behalf therefore to ensure successful delivery we urge you to call the hospital or hotel to ensure the parcel reaches the recipient within the quickest possible timeframe. Regrettably we will not be able to take responsibility if your recipient has moved ward location or been discharged from the hospital before delivery is anticipated.
Please also be aware that should your parcel be returned because your recipient has been moved ward location or been discharged. We will pass on the shipping costs of the returned parcel to us, to the card holder and any items they are not resaleable will be not be refunded.
PLEASE NOTE: Both Couriers and Royal Mail WILL NOT deliver parcels to business addresses or Hospitals on a Saturday therefore please do not select this service. Instead select our Next Day Delivery Service for delivery either on Friday or Monday.
