For your safety and ours, a small percentage of order such as laptops, may need to be verified before shipment, usually only if going to a residential address and only if paid by Visa/Mastercard/Amex. We strongly advise customers to use a verified PayPal account or a bank deposit for these items if they are going to a residential address. If items are going to a company address the order is less likely to require verification. This procedure of checking some items is due to being unable to accept a PIN for security in the online environment and is enforced to protect the cardholder and the merchant. We will notify any such orders within 1 business day of order being placed via email and will happily refund the order in full if requested.

Loss and Damage
Signing for Delivery - The customer/receiver is responsible for making sure that either they or the person accepting the delivery inspect the goods prior to accepting the delivery and signing the Proof Of Delivery (POD) document. If we are instructed to deliver to an address where someone else may be signing for the goods, we recommend passing these instructions on to receptionists or others likely to accept goods on your behalf, to prevent them signing for damaged goods on your behalf, to prevent any issues. Each delivery of goods should be checked for completeness (i.e. the received goods are as per accompanying Consignment Note, some orders may be delivered in separate deliveries, so checking the consignment note is the best way to ensure everything in that specific delivery has been received. Your order confirmation or Tax Invoice, may not be delivered in full in one delivery if multiple services are needed) and any transit damage before signing for said goods. Failure to inspect the goods prior to signing the POD will result in voiding of any insurance against loss or transit damage.
