DPD Shipping Options

Our main courier is now DPD. This has been done to provide our customers with more control over how items are delivered. Options include; specify which neighbours to deliver to if you're out (and which ones to avoid!), specify a leave safe location, redirect your parcel to a participating local store, take a photo of your house to help the driver identify it, take a photo of where you'd like the driver to leave your parcel (leave safe). You'll need to download the DPD app from your phones app store to do this (Google Play Store or Apple App Store).

You don't need to download the app for some of these options as it's optional. DPD will also email you the day before your delivery and also on the day to confirm your delivery slot. These emails will contain a link for you to adjust your delivery on their website - for example to deliver to a neighbour (you'll need to download the app to say which ones to avoid).

Please note that you can download the app at any time to set your default preferences. To specify different preferences for an order you've just placed with us, you'll need to wait until your order has been packed and sent on to DPD before it shows up in their system.

Click here for a guide on how to use the app and specify delivery instructions

Option 1: Set your default delivery preferences

You can setup your default delivery options in the DPD app. After that, the driver will follow your instructions each time they deliver. Please note this only applies to DPD orders and it will apply to anything they deliver to you.


Option 2: Deliver to and avoid certain neighbours

You can select which neighbours you would prefer the driver try and leave your parcel and which neighbours the driver should avoid


Option 3: Leave safe options (with photos)

Select a place where the driver can safely leave your parcel, plus take a photo of your safe place to help them find it


Option 4: Redirect to a pickup shop

Redirect your parcel to a participating local shop where you can pick it up later. You'll find a list of local shops that participate in this scheme in the app. Only shops in the app are eligible.


Option 5: Setup instructions for each delivery attempt

Specify what the driver should do on the first, second and other delivery attempts


Review your options

Review your options and save your preferences. Once you setup your default delivery options, you won't have to do it again.


Remember that to do this, you'll need to download the DPD app from your app store (Google Play Store or Apple App Store). These options only apply to deliveries from DPD and will apply to any company that uses DPD (from us and other companies that use DPD).



Leave Safe Options

Your parcel will be shipped with DPD who will attempt to hand you the parcel in person. You can leave a note clearly displayed (e.g. on your door), or download the app for greater control on where to leave your parcel. You can take a photo of your leave safe place to help the driver recognise it, specify neighbours to leave it with (or neighbours to avoid). You can also specify a participating local store to deliver it to.

DPD will send you shipment emails the night before delivery and the morning of delivery. From there you'll be promopted to either specify a safe place, leave it with a neighbour, or deliver it elsehwere. Note that you'll need the app to take photos or specify which neighbours to avoid.
