Delivery & Returns
Matstores UK continues to remain open in line with government guidance and are following procedures to protect both our employees and customers.
We will continue to aim to process all orders within 2 business days. However, delivery times may take slightly longer than usual. This is due to increased pressure and process changes with the delivery partners that we use.
We will update you via email once your order has been dispatched from the warehouse. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive tracking information so you can monitor the status of your order. In the unlikely event that we are unable to fulfil your order we will notify you via email as soon as possible.
Changes to Delivery
Our delivery partners will make deliveries to the customer’s doorstep and will then step back while they wait for the customer to collect their order. A doorstep delivery requires the driver to place the shipment on the doorstep of the delivery address, knock on the door and step back a minimum of 2 meters while they wait for the customer to collect their order. In a free-standing house, this means the front door of the customer. In an apartment complex, this means the door to the customer’s apartment, or the concierge area.
Changes to delivery procedures for signing for and receiving orders in the UK
In order to protect both employees and customers as much as possible, our delivery partners have changed some of their processes regarding signing for orders.
Customers will not be required to physically sign to confirm receipt of the order. Some couriers will now only seek a verbal confirmation of delivery. This helps minimise the contact between the customer and the driver.
Parcelforce will not be handing over hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures. Instead, drivers will log the first and last name of the person accepting the item, then put 'XP1' in the signature field, and will record the geolocation of the delivery. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
