. 4.1. The S2S services allow you to send items with a choice of the major Carriers and Courier companies that S2S use. In the T&C’s, we refer to these companies as the “Carrier”.
. 4.2. Shipper acknowledges that S2S is not a Carrier and will have none of the obligations of a Carrier to Shipper; neither will S2S have any obligations pertaining to customs clearance. Shipper acknowledges that the T&C’s governing shipments will be established by the applicable Carriers. Shipper acknowledges that S2S will have no responsibility for any inadequacy or failure of, or any delay in, performance by any Carrier. S2S will have no liability for any delays in performance resulting from causes beyond S2S’s reasonable control; Shipper will be responsible for any additional costs resulting from any such causes.
. 4.3. If Shipper has not given specific instructions for any Shipment, S2S may select the mode, route and means of transport for the Shipment.
. 4.4. Shipper will be responsible for (a) tendering goods at the specified place and time and (b) ensuring that S2S has all documents required for receipt and for dispatch and all instructions, including without limitation customs documents. S2S will have no obligation to investigate whether Shipper’s documents or specifications are correct or complete. If documents are not provided, S2S maybe refuse to render or may postpone Services.
. 4.5. The carriage of items is undertaken by the Carrier and we do not carry the items ourselves. However, S2S manage all aspects of the interaction with the Carrier on your behalf (including, for example, the placing of the order itself and any service complaints you may have). Accordingly, if you have any queries or issues about any order you place, you should contact S2S quoting your airwaybill/tracking number.
. 4.6. When you place an order with us, you can select from a range of different Carriers depending upon the services you require. We will provide the Carriers services to you using reasonable skill and care and have selected only reputable Carriers to carry your Shipments.

In other words, we do not ‘check’ your order before it is placed with the Carrier. It is therefore essential that the order is correctly entered and declared in order for the correct Services and pricing to be displayed.

Each Carrier has specific restrictions and prohibitions that you agree to become familiar with prior to tendering any Shipment to Carriers.

This is because we have placed the order on your behalf with the Carrier and will be charged for the collection.

The driver will always keep to the requested time slot where possible.
. 10.2. The shipping portal has an automated system that books the collection as requested by the customer. In the rare event that the Carrier cannot make the collection please contact S2S immediately where we will re book for collection the same day if cut off has not passed or the next working day.

. 10.6. Your Consignment must be packed to a reasonable standard, packed within a double walled cardboard box with the contents cushioned and protected inside. The packaging must also be sufficient to protect the Consignment’s weight. It is not always obvious when a Consignment has not been packaged properly. The Carriers will assume that Consignments have been correctly packaged and will exercise a level of skill and care appropriate to that. Any claim resulting from a parcel that is not packaged to a reasonable standard and in line with the above may be declined. For further details see section 14 below.
. 10.7. Please note that any item travelling through our services must be able to withstand a short drop, fragile items should not be sent though our services.

If the goods are held to be collected, you will be notified that collection of said goods must be arranged by a certain date or the goods may incur storage charges and finally discarded. To clarify, the goods may be discarded if i) Customs remove and destroy the Prohibited item (This only applies to Prohibited items not Restricted) ii) they are damaged to such an extent that it is a Health and Safety risk (such as smashed glass); in which case you would be notified of this at the outset or iii) if they have been held for collection for a fixed time limit and the time limit advised has been exceeded.
. 10.9. Parcels should not be strapped or attached together. This is not a secure way for parcels to travel in the Carrier network. Any item which is not securely packaged or strapped to another package will be treated as a Prohibited Item (see section 11 for further information)

The Carrier and S2S have the right to refuse a Consignment for a reasonable reason such as no packaging, insufficient packaging or the Consignment does not comply with the information given by you at the time of placing the order – for example is not labelled correctly, contains a Prohibited item or is larger than stated.

11. TRACKING AND DELIVERY
see the T&C’s for the Carrier chosen to understand the rules for that specific Guaranteed Delivery Service.
. 11.2. Transit times quoted are calculated from once collection is made and the consignment is in Transit. For example, if a ‘next day’ guaranteed service is ordered, the ‘next day’ will be calculated from the date that the Consignment is collected.

After that stage the tracking number may be re allocated to a new shipment.
. 11.5. You can track all orders online and may contact us prior to the return to rectify any issue. Once returned any return charges that are due must be paid by the person that placed the order, the order will not be refunded and the item will not be re shipped free of charge. The return completes the agreed contract. Tracking is therefore essential to potentially aid delivery and prevent any return and associated costs.
. 11.6. If the driver has used a different tracking number than expected or if the collection point chooses to use new shipping label from the driver, rather than supplied by S2S then you will only be able to track using the number left at the time of collection on the Carriers own website or by contacting our Customer Service team.
. 11.7. S2S and our carriers can only deliver to a full street address. We cannot deliver to a PO Box or BFPO address. If a Consignment has to be returned for this reason, no refund will be given.
. 11.8. Deliveries will be made to the address on the item, main front door, reception or goods in. The drivers will not deliver to individual department or Block numbers. Deliveries may be made to a neighbouring address if the delivery point is out, but only if the goods can be signed for.

You will be guided online to complete this if applicable and a template will be e- mailed to you once the order is placed. An accurate description and reason for Export must be entered on this invoice. If customs find different items than declared or an incorrect reason for export stated (such as Gift when actually purchased) then a surcharge could be applied, items confiscated or the shipment returned (which could be chargeable). Four copies of the customs Invoice must be given to the driver on collection.
. 11.13. S2S services are generally offered “door to door”. This means that we will arrange for pick up from one address and a drop off at another and gain a signature on delivery. If the Consignee is out goods may be left with a neighbour if they are available to sign. Further please note that a small proportion of residential addresses are classified as a ‘Driver release area’ this is where the area is deemed ‘safe’ and the driver is able leave the goods out of sight and out of weather – please check the delivery postcode with our Customer Services before sending to see if it is included.

Customs charges must be paid in addition by the receiver (or Sender if customs agree this to be possible) before delivery is made. Customs will deal directly with the receiver and in some cases, only the receiver. If you do not wish to pay the charges and the Consignment is returned, all return charges will also be passed on. Should a deadline be given before the goods are to be discarded and the deadline passes, no claim can be made for the loss and in addition abandonment charges may apply. Please note, it is the Customers responsibility to track all orders and request S2S to intervene. If the tracking states the goods are held under Customs query and they are returned, or abandoned and we have NOT been contacted then no refund or claim is due.
. 13.2. High Value Consignment may be delayed as they will require further documentation for clearance. Check your location T&C’s for the exact value.
. 14.2. Given that our shipping portal accepts orders on an automated basis, we may not be aware that a Consignment contains a Prohibited Item – even if you list an item which is prohibited when you place your order.

. 15.1. We strongly recommend that you do not send Restricted Items using our service. This is because such items are fragile, dangerous or otherwise inappropriate to be carried by our services and Network.
