By placing an order you agree that you give the courier service ‘Authority To Leave’ the package in a safe spot if no one is home (this is standard practice and ensures your package gets to the recipient as quickly as possible). If you do not wish to give your order ‘Authority To Leave,’ please inform us before your order has been processed, or leave a note in the ‘comments’ section when placing their order. You may be required to pay the post office holding fee of $10 if no one is home and the package is returned to the Post Office. Please see our T&C’s for more information about this.

For deliveries to a residential address, it helps if you please provide the recipients telephone number. We give our courier the authority to leave parcels if the recipient is not at home. If delivery cannot be made, the courier will leave a calling card for the recipient to collect their package from their local post office.

For deliveries to a hospital or nursing home, please provide as much information as possible (such as level, ward and room number). Also make sure they haven’t been discharged by the time the delivery gets there.
