What happens if the recipient isn’t home?
If the recipient isn’t at home, a few things will happen:
  1. The courier will leave the goods at the front or back door if the recipient isn't home and there is a safe place to do so
  2. If the driver is unable to leave the package, the box will be sent back home and a re-delivery can occur for an additional fee.

If you provide us with an incorrect address and we deliver your order as per your instructions, then we accept no responsibility for the mistake.
