Pick ups are any time between the hours of 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday only; unfortunately we are unable to provide more specific ETAs. This means the person at the collection address needs to stay at the collection address within these hours.
We can either uplift from the persons work address or goods can be left safe. If you choose to leave the goods safe, a note for the driver must be left directing him to the parcel and giving authorisation for the driver to uplift. Please be aware that customers do this at their own risk.
Please fill out the missed collection form to arrange a new collection date. A maximum of two further attempts will be made over and above the initial attempt. If after three attempts uplift is unsuccessful, the collection will be put on hold until the person making the booking can give a 100% guarantee that there will be someone at the address for uplift before we will arrange to return.
Delivery is normally next working day, excluding Scottish Highlands and Islands and Northern Ireland, Isle of Man. That means if goods are collected day one they are delivered day two. i.e. goods collected on a Tuesday will normally be delivered on a Wednesday. Friday collections are normally delivered on a Monday.
We currently deliver 98.7% next working day and strive to give the best possible service. Due to logistical problems, occasionally a parcel may miss a connecting trunk and there are certain factors out with our control such as acts of god, severe weather conditions, traffic delays etc.
If your parcel is delayed and not delivered the next working day, we will endeavour to deliver as soon as physically possible. Therefore we will still provide the service and therefore no refund will be given.
We will attempt a delivery the next working day. A card will be left by one of our drivers on both attempts, please read the instructions on the card, and call the number supplied to rearrange a convenient day for redelivery. If we do not receive a response to the card within 3 days the parcel will be returned to sender and redelivery costs will be incurred.
You can change delivery address free of charge prior to the parcel being collected. However if the parcel has already been collected, the parcel will then need to be redirected through the system and this will incur additional costs as this amounts to another delivery.
Unfortunately our drivers use hand held digital scanners where their information is sent digitally, they do not have a company phone which they can call out on. Therefore this service is not available.
Please relate to our terms and conditions for insurance queries.
Any insurance claim must be submitted in writing or by email, within three days of receiving the parcel, out with this time the claim will be null and void.
Parcels should be fully packaged to avoid damage to goods in transit. For further information please refer to our packaging requirements. The customer remains responsible for ensuring packaging and labelling is adequate for transportation.
The driver will use his own discretion as to whether the parcel is adequately packaged and is at liberty to refuse collection should he feel it is not packaged sufficiently and could be damaged in transit.
An insurance claim will normally take eight to twelve working weeks, from the time the claim is lodged to the time funds are paid out. This is due to insurance companies dealing with paperwork and investigating the claim.
