A quick update:
- You might be wondering how Authority to Leave works if you live in an apartment. Normally if you are not home at time of delivery and it is unsafe to leave, the driver will either attempt re-delivery the following day or leave a pickup slip. Although during this lockdown period, your local pickup location may be deemed non-essential and be forced to close. For a fast, smooth delivery please keep an eye on your tracking and make sure you are home on the day of delivery, or use your work address if you are still working.
- Orders with ‘Signature on Delivery’ method selected may be changed to 'Authority to Leave' in order to reduce the contact necessary between customer and driver. Our delivery drivers will take a signature on behalf of customers if they wish.
- Due to the cancellation of an increasing number of international flights and country specific lockdowns, overseas transit times may be delayed by more than seven days.
- Delivery to Parcel Lockers or PO Boxes cannot be made at this time, get in touch so we can help arrange a safe delivery with our carbon neutral couriers.
