Delivery and bulk drops

We try and ensure delivery to every home and business in the borough but sometimes our distributor might miss a property out.

  • if this happens let us know and we will get this looked into
  • we check out every occurrence of missed distribution to try and ensure it does not happen again
  • please note for some properties with security measures, delivery might be more difficult
  • our distributor is told not leave the paper sticking out of the letter box – if this happens let us know and we will rectify the situation
