14. Delivery of goods
Deliveries to UK address are made during the working days between 8am – 5:30pm. The customer is responsible for being present at the delivery address during these times to sign for the goods. If no one is present to accept the goods and re-delivery needs to be arranged, an additional charge for this service will be applied and the customer will be charged. If the customer is not present while the delivery is being made and requests for the items to be left at a designated area than at this point he becomes responsible for the safety of the goods and Telkom International is not responsible for any loss or damage of such items. The customer takes a full responsibility by advising us to leave his order elsewhere without the customer’s signature.
