If there is any damage to the packaging on delivery, contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. Missing or Lost Package
There are several reasons why a package gets lost or becomes a delivery exception. We’ve found that, more often that not, the package is either in the building or with a neighbour. First Strings Pty Ltd politely requests that customers look in common courier hiding spots. Please take a look around and let us know if you find it. If you haven't located your order, please contact us at email@example.com to report missing or lost packages.
