We will aim to ensure that all Goods which we receive at our delivering parcel residential  Address are forwarded to your Delivery Address as soon as possible after receiving your instructions and payment to do so. Goods will normally be forwarded within 48 hours of payment, although it may take longer where we, acting reasonably, suspect that Restricted Goods or Prohibited Goods have been sent to us, or that the Goods may be fraudulent or otherwise unsuitable for export.

Deliveries may require your signature to confirm receipt.

We may need to inspect the Goods, which could include opening packages where necessary. If we do this, we will re-package the Goods so they are packaged to a similar standard to when we received them. Although we will use reasonable endeavors to avoid doing so, you acknowledge that as part of this inspection we may have to break the seals on some Goods. We do not accept any liability for any damage caused as a result (unless it is due to our negligence).

After this time we will charge a daily storage fee for each package we have stored beyond 30 days. The fee for each package will accrue daily until the package is shipped or disposed of.

Whenever we receive Goods at our delivering parcel Address, we will contact you using the details you provided when you became a shopper to confirm the full amount of the Fee and to take payment. We will not dispatch the Goods to you until we have received full payment of the Fee.

If we are unable to contact you within 14 business days of receiving Goods from a Supplier at our address, we may return the Goods to that Supplier.
