1.4 Delivery fees include delivery to the majority of towns and cities in South Africa only. In some cases, couriers may require a surcharge to deliver to areas considered to be remote or high-risk.

1.7 Customers should ensure that the correct number of cartons as indicated on the waybill is received before signing the waybill.

Customers should never sign as having received more packages than what was delivered as this could jeopardize claims of liability against the courier and may result in the loss being for the customer’s account.
