Our Standard delivery period is 2-3 working days. On occasion, due to delays outside of our control, deliveries may take longer. We will, however, make every effort to deliver on time and keep you updated throughout the process.

Receiving your delivery

Please arrange that you, or an authorised representative, is available to accept your order at the delivery address and that appropriate access is given.

Should no-one be available at the delivery address specified by you at the time of delivery, the driver will return the order. The courier company will attempt to contact you to make new arrangements for re-delivery. Should no-one be available on the second attempt we reserve the right to charge an additional delivery fee.
We have outsourced all deliveries and so we cannot, to the extent permitted by law, be liable for any damage suffered or loss incurred by reason of any acts or omissions of the courier.

They are instructed to leave the order in a safe area on your property, if available, or it will be returned to @ Office World.
