Yes! All couriers have completed the Zoom2u courier training program and genuinely care about every delivery. While it is your responsibility to obtain suitable insurance for your parcels, in some circumstances we will pay up to $300 for the cost of repairing or replacing parcels that are damaged or lost during a delivery. For further details, see our Customer Terms. Each time a delivery is completed, we ask you to rate your courier, so we do our very best to ensure a positive experience.
Cancellations made prior to the courier being on route to your location are free. If the courier arrives to collect a parcel and no one's there, they'll wait for up to 10 minutes and try to contact you by phone and SMS. After this time, the full fee will be charged. The same goes for the destination, but if we can't track you down to make other arrangements, we’ll return your parcel to the pickup location. If returning it isn’t possible that day, we may need to hold onto it at your own risk until we can. Your courier will keep you in the loop. Please note, additional charges may apply for returns.
