What Happens if an Item I Ordered is Out of Stock?
We carry a large stock holding in our warehouse which we are always restocking. However, it is possible that you will order a product that is out of stock. If this happens, we will contact you within one working day to notify you and to give you options, e.g. swap for another similar product etc. Rest assured that we will always do our best to get the products you desire to you as soon as possible and that you will always be in the loop with how your order is progressing.
What Happens if There is Nobody Home When a Courier Attempts Delivery?
Couriers deliveries take place Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm, so you should always provide a delivery address where there will be an appropriate person to sign for the delivery during these times. If there is no one around to accept the delivery, the courier company will contact the recipient via telephone so that a new delivery day can be arranged.
Do I Have to Receive a Courier Delivery Personally?
Anyone at the delivery address can accept the delivery. In order for us to prove that delivery of an order has been completed, we do not have to prove that you personally received the goods, but rather that any person at the delivery address signed for the delivery.
Can I Track my Order?
We will email you your parcel’s tracking information the first working day after we send it. If the parcel leaves our premises on Tuesday, you will receive your tracking information via email on Wednesday morning. You can also track your order by logging into your My Account portal, clicking on the Order Tracking tab and selecting your order to track.
