(1L) We understand that customers would like their order to be left or safe dropped. As a business we have decided to request every signature on ALL deliveries.
We haven’t made this decision lightly and has been made for the following reasons:
1. Australia Post no longer give any guarantee when an item is safe dropped and this not only cover’s us, it also covers yourself the customer.
2. We have unfortunately had a few people take advantage of the “safe drop” option.
3. This provides us with proof of delivery and additionally allows us to get a copy of the signature provided.
4. Mastercard, Visa, Amex, ALL require proof of delivery ie. Signature
We apologise if this creates any issues, however we are sure you can understand as to why we have made this decision. We have a duty and responsibility that your parcel arrives to YOU the customer.

To make a claim pictures must taken of all packaging, wrapping material and of course the bottle with the original security seals still in place. If the security seals are not in place and are not clearly visible in the image, we will not entertain any remedy as this will be seen as a sign of acceptance of the product by the customer.
