If you are not at home when your delivery arrives, the courier will generally leave the package for you at your door. Our Products are packaged with insulated liners and gel ice packs and will typically remain cold and fresh for several hours (the exact number of hours may vary according to the delivery zone’s climate conditions) , but depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advance planning by you should be made for proper storage of your meal ingredients prior to consumption. In certain areas, you may be able to provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your Handpick account, such as requesting that your delivery be left with a doorman or neighbor, or that your delivery be left in a shaded area. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver, such person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself.
In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your Products, we will attempt to deliver your Products as soon as reasonably possible. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your Products is not feasible, we will cancel your Products delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit of the purchase price for that Products.
