Delivery to flats. In some flats please be aware that neighbours, a doorman or security will sign to receive deliveries for a recipient. You should be aware of this when placing an order for delivery. If a delivery has not arrived on time to a flat it is likely that it has been accepted and signed for on the recipient’s behalf.

If any general information is sent to us by our couriers we will let you know either by email or by calling you.
