Items Lost In Post:
We have a procedure for items, which are lost with the Royal Mail. We ask that if a parcel has not turned up you let us know. It is of course no fault of our own and the responsibility lies with the Royal Mail. Sometimes when items can’t go through your letterbox a red card is not left. We ask that you check with your post office and local depot to see if your parcel has turned up with them. If 15 working days have elapsed we can officially mark the item as lost, until that point the parcel could arrive at your door as stated by Royal Mail themselves. We have to then claim for the lost item with the Royal Mail which will involve your co-operation by filling in Royal Mail's short form which in most cases they send to customers of ours. We will however despatch your items again after the 15 days have elapsed at our expense, but reserve the right to amend this at any time.
