1.Placing an order and the Right to Cancel

1.4 The collection of a Consignment will normally occur on your chosen date shortly after you have placed your order. Any order can be cancelled by you. However, after a consignment has been collected from you it can’t be cancelled. By arranging for the Consignment to be collected, you consent to the provision of services to you and accordingly you will not be able to exercise any legal cancellation right that you may have (also known as a 'cooling off' right) from the point when the Consignment is collected from you.

1.7 We will supply you with the shipping documentation via email, if you do not print all the documentation for the collection including instructions for the service point and / or a manual shipping document is used or you do not provide the Performa invoices if required then we will charge an admin fee of £15.00 per consignment. The admin fee will also apply if you incorrectly declare the contents of the shipment or do not supply a clear description or choose the document service option rather than the non document service if the shipment contains dutiable items.

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. Any claim resulting from a parcel that is not packaged to a reasonable standard and in line with the above may be declined.

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.
3.6 Parcels should not be strapped or attached together. This is not a secure way for parcels to travel. Any item which is not securely packaged or strapped to another package will be treated as a Prohibited Item.
3.7 The Cargo to Pakistan 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.

3.9 It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that all the details are correctly completed and displayed on the correct Consignment as delivery will be made to the details listed on the Consignment. It is not the driver's responsibility to check this information, so please ensure this is checked before he leaves.

4.1 Delivery dates and times are not guaranteed unless you have selected a Guaranteed Delivery Service. A Guaranteed Delivery Service offers a money back guarantee equating to 50% of the original shipping cost if delivery is not attempted at the date and time specified. Non-guaranteed delivery services do not have this guarantee.

After that stage the tracking number may be re allocated to a new shipment.
4.5 Cargo to Pakistan Ltd can only deliver to a full street address. We cannot deliver to a PO Box or BFPO address unless a telephone number is provided. If a Consignment has to be returned for this reason, no refund will be given.
4.6 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.
4.7 A telephone number for the receiver is required for each Consignment (for example so that the receiver can be called in the event of an address query). Cargo to Pakistan will not re ship or refund any returned item if a telephone number has not been provided and the Carrier has been unable to arrange delivery because a phone number has not been provided.
4.8 Cargo to Pakistan 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 or unavailable goods may be left with a neighbour if they are available to sign or leave within an area that is deemed 'safe' and the driver is able leave the goods out of sight and out of weather.
5.1 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. Should you proceed to send such goods you do so at your own risk understanding that the item will be covered for Loss only and excluded from any damage cover?
5.2 In the event of damage a restricted item may be held for collection by the Customer. This may be the case if the goods are prohibited and cannot be sent through the system or damaged to such an extent that onward forwarding is not possible. If this is the case you will be notified in writing that goods must be collected within 7 days following this point they will be discarded. If the goods are so badly damaged that the contents are destroyed or that the goods pose a Health & Safety risk then they may be immediately discarded, again you will be notified in writing.

6.2 In addition to our prohibition of the carriage of Prohibited Items, hazardous / dangerous goods are strictly prohibited from our services.
