Most of our deliveries are made when clients are not at home. As we deliver fresh food, the hamper will not require a signature, and is always left in a secure place normally designated by you. We've had customers ask our drivers to leave hampers in a car boot, in their wendy houses or next to the recycling bin for them to collect whenever they come home. We can deliver to the workplace or we can leave the hamper at a neighbour, friends or any other address in the UK. The hampers are sealed and come chilled with ice packs, ensuring the food inside stays fresh.
We use our own couriers to deliver your fresh food hamper, 2 times a week. We offer key management, so our drivers can leave your hamper in a secure location; Driver contact, where our drivers can text or call you before the arrival of your delivery and we also can pick up your empty hampers to be recycled.
