Orders are processed on time & our couriers are delivering on time.
For residential deliveries that are ‘signature required’:
1. Our couriers will knock on the door as usual and step back two metres (or as far back as possible).
2. They will ask for the recipient’s name (to record proof of delivery) and leave the parcel on the ground in front of the receiver. The person receiving the parcel will not sign for the delivery directly.
3. If no one comes to the door and there is no Authority to Leave service in place, the courier will follow the standard process which is to leave a card to call and return the parcel to our depot.
4. Upon receipt of your parcel we suggest washing your hands as on its journey to you it may have passed through many hands & locations.
