In any case, Efficient Stationers shall not be liable for any cost or damage caused by late or non-delivery of the Products.

Delivery times are between 9.00 am and 5.30 pm. We cannot specify an exact time when we will deliver. The delivery driver needs to obtain a signature for all parcels. If you are unavailable to accept delivery, your order may be left with a neighbor if they are willing to sign for it.
