      • Once issued your timeslot cannot be changed.
      • Timeslots are estimated, actual delivery times can be earlier or later due to circumstances beyond our control. This means someone must be present at the delivery address all day and able to accept the products upon arrival of our delivery vehicle.
    10. If you find you cannot keep to the delivery date you must notify us before 12 noon one working day before delivery.
