If in the courier’s opinion the Delivery Point is not easily accessible, or it is unsafe to deliver the Products, the delivery will not be made, and the Customer will be contacted to make alternative arrangements. Preston’s reserves the right to charge Customers an additional fulfilment fee in respect of any deliveries repeated in accordance with this clause. If alternative arrangements acceptable to Preston’s are not reached, the Customer will be deemed to have cancelled the order, and will incur a $20 cancellation fee.

5.5 Delays to delivery 

Notwithstanding any other term, no member of the Preston’s Group shall be liable for failure to deliver on a timely basis, whether the delay has been due to causes beyond the control of Preston’s or otherwise. If Preston’s considers that the delivery of a Customer’s order is likely to be substantially delayed, Preston’s may, but shall not be obliged to, contact the Customer to arrange an alternative delivery timeframe. If that timeframe is unacceptable to the Customer, the Customer may cancel the order, without incurring any fee for doing so. 

5.6 Delivery deemed to have taken place

If no person is present at the Delivery Point at the time of delivery, or the Customer or any other person fails or refuses to take delivery of the Products, the Products will be left at the Delivery Point and be deemed to have been delivered at that point in time. 

5.7 Incorrectly or undelivered Products 

If any Product delivered does not correspond with a Product ordered, the Customer may: 

(a) keep the incorrectly-delivered Product, in which case no adjustment will be made to the payment due from the Customer for the order containing the incorrect Product; or 

(b) reject the incorrectly-delivered Product, in which case Preston’s will, at the request of the Customer, either replace that Product with the Product that was originally ordered, or refund the value of the Product that was originally ordered (as at the date on which the Product was ordered). 

If a Customer chooses to reject an incorrectly-delivered Product in accordance with sub-clause (b), Preston’s reserves the right to collect the incorrectly-delivered Product from the Customer. If the Customer is unable, or refuses, to deliver up the Product when requested, Preston’s reserves the right to charge the Customer for that Product. 

If a Customer has been charged for a Product that has not been delivered, if the Product is in stock, Preston’s will, at the request of the Customer, re-deliver that Product at no extra charge to the Customer. Alternatively, the Customer may cancel the order of such Product (or if the Product is out of stock Preston’s may cancel the order for that Product) (in each case without incurring any cancellation fee), and Preston’s will refund the value of the relevant Product (as at the date on which the Product was ordered).
