Door to Door Service Delivery to an address



In a door-to-door delivery method, Holaks Cargo undertakes to deliver to an address specified in the despatch documentation, not to a specific person. If the customer wishes for goods to be delivered to a specific person, this should be clearly arranged and notified at the time of preparing the despatch note.



If there is no one present at the delivery address, then:



the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Holaks Cargo may at its discretion attempt to deliver the Consignment to a neighbouring address within a reasonable distance of the delivery address; and



if this occurs, customers will be informed via a phone call to the original recipient’s phone; and



the Customer agrees that such delivery shall constitute delivery to the address specified as the delivery address in the despatch documentation.



Holaks Cargo does not undertake to intercept a Consignment in transit before delivery has been attempted. Delivery can only be altered after making the first delivery attempt and the customer’s wishes for the consignment delivery to be changed. This will attract an extra administrative charge, which will be agreed upon with the customer before being carried out.



Holaks Cargo shall not be liable in respect of any Consignment delivered to the delivery address or other address specified by the addressee, where any person misrepresents his authority to receive a Consignment on the address’s or Customer’s behalf, or where Holaks Cargo is delivering it in accordance with instructions from, or purporting to be from the addressee.



On delivery of a Consignment, Holaks Cargo will request the person who accepts delivery (not necessarily the addressee in person) to sign an acknowledgment/delivery receipt, which may include a signature by electronic means – if available. Delivery within some locations in Nigeria will require the recipient to sign the delivery note in the compound of the address where delivery is made and not outside the delivery house or compound. This will be at the discretion of the delivery agent. Copies of such receipt shall be available for a period of two months from the date of delivery, subject to payment of the applicable charges.



Holaks Cargo do not accept Consignments addressed to P.O. Box within the UK, Nigeria, and Other selected countries within our service areas. For deliveries to Nigeria, Holaks Cargo will in some instances contact the recipient to collect the consignment from our agent office with a valid proof of address and identity. This acceptance of such proof is at the discretion of our agent in Nigeria.
