Our drivers make two delivery attempts as standard. if the consignee is not present at the address, the driver will leave a note in the letterbox. The driver will then attempt to deliver the parcel again on the next working day. If the consignee is absent once again, the driver will leave another note in the letterbox. The note explains how the consignee can obtain the parcel.
The diesel surcharge reflects price trends on the energy market. This means that the additional costs caused by any rise in diesel prices are passed on to the business shipper. The amount of the currently applicable surcharge can be viewed online at any time. The fuel surcharge is charged as a percentage of the net shipping costs and shown separately on the invoice.
