* Prior authorisation for excluded items
If your sending an item on our excluded list, we can still offer protection for damage in some circumstances. Simply contact us in advance of shipping and provide images of the goods your shipping and the packaging being used so we can assess whether we’re able to provide protection.
Our services are not guaranteed, so if your delivery is late you are not entitled to compensation. However if you purchase our money back guarantee upgrade option, you are entitled to a full refund on your shipping costs if your shipment is not delivered within the delivery due date due to a service failure.
Sometimes additional charges may be due on your shipment, under the following circumstances:
If additional payment is due, we will take it from your original payment method. We don’t store your physical payment details or any personal information, we only store a token obtained from our payment merchant.
You can only appeal a carrier weight adjustment if you can provide photographic evidence of the weight and dimensions of your parcel, so we recommend you take these in advance of shipping. Learn more
