FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What telephone number should I call you on?

In general, it is best to contact us via the Contact Form at the bottom of this page, but if you do need to contact us directly, you should use the French telephone number for delivery slots and quotes. There is also a UK number available, if preferred. All our Contact details are available here.

Can I order frozen food?

We cannot accept frozen products, but chilled goods are fine, up to 10% of the order value i.e.in a  £100 order, £10 worth can be chilled goods..

Is there a maximum account of grocery I can order?

Our vans are divided up into the maximum number of 'slots' they can carry and each slot has a maximum grocery order value of £200. You can order as much grocery shopping as you like (from multiple suppliers, if you wish) but you must remember that the limit per slot is £200, so do make sure you book enough space.

If the grocery delivered to us exceeds the maximum value for the number of slots you have booked, we do reserve the right to exclude part or all of  your order from the delivery. So, make sure that when you contact us to book your delivery, you reserve enough slots in advance for your anticipated total grocery order value.
