Our chocolates are delivered in a rugged outer cardboard carton to ensure that our products reach their destination in good condition. Wherever possible these are designed to fit through a standard letterbox.
We are unable to send out any orders if the temperature exceeds 23C. We will do our best to advise you when this occurs and send your order out as soon as the weather is cooler.

If we are delivering your order to a third party address (for example as a gift to a friend) you must please ensure that you provide us with a full and accurate address including the correct postcode. We will not be liable for orders lost or delayed due to wrong or incomplete
address details.
Delivery is deemed to have been made when delivered to the address provided. We will not be liable if the delivery fails for any reason to reach the intended recipient.

If we are delivering to a business or institution address, delivery will be made to the address that you have selected. Amelie Chocolat shall be deemed to have delivered your order to the intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area or post room of that address.

Please note that we are unable to deliver to an address containing a P.O. Box Number.

Should there not be someone in to accept delivery during working hours or if the courier considers that your order will not fit through the letter box a card will be left informing the recipient that they have tried to deliver. They will request that the recipient contacts their local sorting office to arrange collection or to re-deliver at a suitable date.

We accept no liability if delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available or due to the recipient failing to contact their local Royal Mail sorting office within a reasonable time to arrange collection or re-delivery.
You should advise us within 14 working days of a UK delivery not received. We will do everything possible to resolve the issue for you. We will not be liable for a failed delivery if you fail to advise us within 30 working days.

If returning goods please obtain a proof of posting from your delivery service provider. Without this we cannot be responsible for any items that fail to reach us.
Free Delivery by Royal Mail Post or DPD

We provide a free UK delivery service by Royal Mail post or DPD for all your
orders for delivery within the UK. Please note this service is not
time specific.
If you require delivery within a specific time frame we recommend our
Guaranteed Next Day Delivery Service.
Orders with a value greater than £30.00 will be sent by DPD with the exception of the Highlands and Islands.
A signature may be required for delivery on this service. If nobody is home to sign the courier 
may leave a card saying ‘we tried to deliver while you were out’. The recipient can either
phone the number on the card to arrange redelivery or collect the item from their local
collection office.
Orders for more than one item may be sent in separate packages.
On occasion when appropriate we will use Business Post UK Mail for delivery instead.

Guaranteed Next Day Delivery Service

In addition we offer a Guaranteed Next Day Delivery Service for only £6.00 and a Guaranteed
Saturday Delivery Service for £8.00.
This cost is per item and will be sent by Royal Mail Guaranteed Next Day Delivery Service.
Your order must be received by us by 3.00pm for it to be sent out the same day for delivery the
next day before 2.00pm. If delivery is to the Islands ( ie Jersey ) delivery may not be before 2.00pm.
If your order is placed after 3.00 pm it will be sent out on the following day by Guaranteed Next
Day Delivery Service.
A signature will be required on delivery.
If nobody is home to sign the postman will leave a card saying ‘we tried to deliver while you were out’.
The recipient can either phone the number on the card to arrange redelivery or collect the item from their
local sorting office.

It is the senders responsibility to establish if the gift has been delivered on the day requested. We do not monitor delivery. If for any reason your gift has not been delivered please inform us immediately and we will track your delivery for you and try to reunite your recipient with your gift as quickly as possible. It sometimes happens that the recipient does not respond to the while you were out card - or indeed does not receive the while you were out card. We can still arrange a redelivery or for the recipient to collect from their local post office but can only do so if advised of the non delivery by the sender or the recipient. If the item is not collected within one week Royal Mail will return your package to us. We will then offer to resend by Royal Mail post at no additional charge to either the sender or the intended recipient. We will not offer a refund or a replacement in this instance as the item cannot be resold and the delivery failure is beyond our control.

We do not despatch orders over the weekend. Orders placed after 3.00pm on Friday will be sent out on the following Monday. So if you place a Guaranteed Next Day delivery order on Friday after 3.00pm
it will be sent out on the following Monday for delivery before 2.00pm the next day.

If you have placed your order before 4.00pm and would still like it to be despatched on the same day please let us know and we will do our very best!
