Delivery costs are paid to Aquablue Seafoods prior to despatch, and our courier just
adds delivery charges to our monthly account. You can not pay cash on delivery. These
are commercial couriers they want a signature for receipt of delivery only.
We use Fastway because of their good delivery record. However, accidents do
occur and boxes do go missing from time to time and are late on arrival.
Your box of produce will be delivered by Fastway Couriers to your door and you
will need to sign for the delivery. Having the delivery made to your home or work is
OK just as long as there is someone there during business hours to sign for the
delivery. If there is not going to be someone there to sign we need to advise the
delivery driver and make alternate arrangements.
