We are giving an estimated 48 hour delivery period. You can state a "safe place" on your property where the goods can be left (at your own risk) without a signature, or state the name of an adjacent direct neighbour. NOTE - drivers will not call you - it is their personal phones - if you are not going to be home please state a safe place to leave the goods otherwise they will be returned to the depot and it is your responsibility to obtain them.
Our courier is APC. They do an amazing job year-round of delivering our packages to you. They will notify you of tracking information the day before delivery to your email address. If you need to contact them direct in regards to your delivery please do so via their website, or phone (0800 37 37 37) giving either your consignment number or your order number (known as your "reference number").
We will endeavour to deliver our goods as requested however due to adverse weather conditions or circumstances out of our control we may be unable to do so. We will undertake to deliver at the next available opportunity and our liability is limited to this. Please note the festive period is a time when carriers are at their busiest. In our opinion it is best to take your order earlier in December. Smoked Salmon has four weeks shelf life (in fact it is tested at 60 days) but we label it from packing day with 28 days. It is also very suitable for home freezing.
Taking delivery on the very last day carries an element of risk. In addition to the risks incurred in taking foods last minute orders placed for the week commencing Monday 19th December run a risk of not being delivered in time- Foods are held in very cold transport warehouses - but given the fact carriers are under huge pressure - there is an element of risk and you may well not receive your foods until after Christmas.
If your package is held back, please remember the foods are cured and smoked. The transport depots are often colder often than a domestic fridge - On receipt, store in your fridge to allow any natural oils which may have surfaced to settle.
Please note: Incomplete delivery information may result in your order being cancelled and refunded subject to an admin fee of £4 . Please ensure your delivery information is correct when placing your order.

Note, this option is not available for deliveries after 14th December - as per above. You will need to contact APC yourself direct - our office will be closed.
