Your delivery can be delivered to you between 7:00am and 8:00pm on the requested day of delivery or earlier. Your hire period starts from the time the courier attempted first delivery and credits will not be issued for late delivery where you have not been available to accept delivery. When placing an order you automatically give us authority to leave your parcel in a safe place. If you do not wish to grant us this authority you must clearly outline this in the delivery instructions at checkout.
