Authority to leave:
Deliveries will not be left unattended if no-one is home to accept delivery unless you expressly request it. If you are comfortable for your goods to be left unattended please state this on your order in the comments section and advise a safe & secure place for the order to be placed.
If we do not have your authority to leave a parcel your the goods will be taken back to the courier depot and a calling card will be left. If re delivery is attempted you may be charged a second delivery fee, you will also have the option to collect your goods from the courier depot.
Candle Creations does not accept any responsibility for theft or loss once goods are delivered. We recommend that if you are at work during the day you should have your parcel delivered to your work address.
If you forgot to add something to an order the best thing to do is make another order, right away, and mark it for “combined shipping”. Please put a note of your previous order number. If your previous order has already left you will need to pay an additional courier fee so please check the status of your previous order first. Note that at peak times we may not be able to combine orders.
