What do I do if I have problems with the courier and delivery?
- Unfortunately, we can't guarantee a time that your order will be delivered. It entirely depends on the route the courier driver decides to take that day.

If you do encounter problems, you can either call the courier company directly for immediate assistance, preferably the branch closest to your delivery address. Alternatively, you can contact us with your query and we will follow up with the courier company.
