You can purchase extra insurance cover (available for most items but please see the list below for uninsurable items) at the time of booking. Some carriers will only insure items when they are new and in their original packaging e.g. T.V.’s – this is because the manufacturers packaging is classed as the recommended packaging. Any other form of packaging can comprise that safety of the item and therefore the claim. We will advise you on your individual circumstances if you wish to contact the office regarding this.

Please note that you can only insure for the cost of replacement value and not the sales value.

Please do not presume anything when it comes insurance cover. If you are in any doubt, please contact our office and we will be pleased to advise.

Some services require the value of the extended cover to be marked on the consignment note. You will be advised of this prior to the collection being made. When this occurs it is the customers responsibility. A copy of the consignment note with the extended cover marked on will be required in the event of a claim.

COLLECTION OF GOODS


Goods must be ready for collection between 9am and 5-30pm on the day of collection. If the goods are not ready or no-one is available at the collection address a surcharge may be added by Parcelflight.co.uk.

It is the responsibility of the customer to package the goods well and safely.
 
For Uk and international deliveries, we will email you a label, which will needs to be printed and attached to the parcel. If you are unable to do this, please contact our office and we will make alternative arrangements. (If a label is not ready for the driver, he will not be able to collect your parcel).
Do not use a hand written label (the only exception is when DPD are collecting from you), even if this is suggested by the driver. To do so will result in you having to pay the carrier directly, at a much higher price because it will no longer be on Parcelflights account, therefore all
discounts will be lost. We will not be able to rectify this after the event. Please call our office before your parcel is collected if you need any clarification on this.



DELIVERY OF GOODS

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that someone is available at the delivery address for delivery of goods.  If, for any reason whatsoever the carrier is unable to deliver the Consignment to the delivery Address or alternative
delivery address, they may at their discretion deliver the Consignment to a nearby address.

Parcels will be returned at a cost to the customer if a delivery has not been possible.

All transit times are estimates and no service can be guaranteed (Collection or Delivery). Claims cannot be made for consequential loss or cost due to late collections or deliveries.
 
Any queries relating to charges for deliveries pricing or weight quieries need to be made within 14 days of the due delivery date or 14 days from your invoice being issued. All further requests made after that time frame will be rejected.
 
CANCELLATION POLICY
 
Parcelflight reserve the right to refuse any orders taken.
 
The collection of a Consignment will normally occur on your chosen date shortly after you have placed your order.  Any order can be cancelled by you and a full refund will be given up until the time that the Consignment is collected from you.  HOWEVER, AFTER A CONSIGNMENT HAS BEEN COLLECTED FROM YOU, YOUR ORDER CANNOT BE CANCELLED.  This is because we have placed the order on your behalf with the Carrier and will be charged for the collection.  By arranging for the Consignment to be collected, you consent to the provision of services to you and accordingly you will not be able to exercise any legal cancellation right that you may have (also known as a 'cooling off' right) from the point when the Consignment is collected from you.
