We are more than willing to follow any reasonable instructions to ensure your order gets to you in the best condition.

Time and day of special deliveries will be agreed upon by you, the customer, and us at We Are Food, at a time which best suits us both. You can specify a delivery time upon ordering, and we will contact you if this time is unsuitable (due to busy delivery schedules or lack of stock).

Upon failure to make delivery, the driver will attempt to contact you to make an alternative arrangement. If this fails too, your order will be returned to We are Food, and delivery attempted during the next delivery in your area.

We Are Food reserves the right to change the time of delivery at any stage, and will not be held liable for any deliveries that are late or are not delivered on the agreed day.
