    • Some large or heavy items such as furniture or safes will require longer delivery times (usually 3-5 days) because of their special delivery requirements. These products will be identified on our website in advance of you placing your order.

    • Deliveries will usually be made by FedEx and can be made between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday inclusive, we cannot accept specific delivery times. The courier will require someone to sign for receipt of the goods. If you have special delivery requirements please make sure you add these in the 'Special Delivery Requirements' box when placing your order.

    • If the courier attempts to make a delivery but is unsuccessful, a notice of attempted delivery will be left at the delivery address after each attempted delivery, indicating the date and time of the attempted delivery. The courier will make three attempts at delivery to business addresses and two attempts to residential addresses, after which time the delivery of goods will be treated as undeliverable and returned to Office Allsorts. We will contact you to discuss cancellation of the order, (please see cancellation terms and conditions).

    • If delivery of your order was unsuccessful and subsequently cancelled we reserve the right to retain the cost of delivery if incorrect delivery details were provided by you when placing your order which caused the delivery to fail.
