Other Delivery Information:

dpd local PREDICT and FOLLOW MY PARCEL service: Most of our UK parcels are sent out via dpd local.

As part of the biggest overnight parcel carrier group in the UK, DPD Local (Blue Vans) along with their sister company DPD (Red Vans), invest in and bring to the market industry leading technology. One of the their most innovative advances was to introduce their PREDICT service to the market which provides all of our customers with the ability to know that their delivery will be made within a one hour delivery window, therefore allowing you not to have to wait in all day.

This is notified to our customers by SMS text message and email, providing both details have been supplied by you in the ordering process.

What's more, their revolutionary FOLLOW MY PARCEL service enables our customers to watch the progress of their delivery on a real-time map, all the way down to a final 15 minute timeslot.

As well as keeping our customers informed at all stages of the delivery journey, DPD believe in offering the maximum choice in delivery options and convenience. That's why they provide access to several rescheduling options both on the day of delivery and the night before. This allows you the end customer to take delivery in a way that suits you best. If you wish to reschedule, you can:

  • Select an alternative delivery date
  • Opt for delivery to a nominated neighbour
  • Collect the parcel from your local DPD depot
  • Upgrade delivery to before 12

All these options are available to you via email or SMS notification, so when ordering please remember to add your mobile number so that you can be in control of your delivery.

Any contact telephone numbers that have been entered in the order process, will be passed to our delivery people in case of any difficulties in locating your premises when making a delivery. Please be assured that this information is not passed to any other people or company.

All deliveries will have to be signed for at the delivery address on completion of drop off. Once the goods have been delivered to you, and signed for, the responsibility of the goods then falls on you the customer. Any loss or damage to the goods after this time shall be at your own risk.

It is the responsibility of the person receiving the goods to check that all packages are counted for correctly and check for damage to the packaging or goods before signing the delivery note. If any packaging appears damaged, please check that the contents are intact and then note the damage on the delivery note before signing. See below for notes on damaged goods.

Should delivery not take place on the day arranged for delivery or be refused at the delivery address, then Zip Wire Retrievers reserve the right to make a charge for the second delivery.

Damaged Goods on Delivery:
Whilst ever effort is made to deliver your order in a first-class condition, occasionally damage may occur during transit.

It is the responsibility of the person receiving the goods to check that all parts of the shipment are counted for and checked for damage before signing to accept delivery. If any packaging appears damaged, please check that the contents are not damaged, then note the damage on the delivery note before signing.

Zip Wire Retrievers will not be held responsible if any damage is reported to us after the delivery has been signed for, and if the delivery note does not have any damage notes recorded on it.

Once the goods have been inspected and any damage identified, please notify our customer services people of the damage by either telephone on 01963 361511 or by sending an email ASAP with your photos to:
