Orders Including Alcoholic Drinks

Alcoholic drinks may only be purchased by individuals who are at least eighteen (18) years of age. By purchasing such products on the NAPEX website, you confirm that: (i) you are at least eighteen (18) years of age; and (ii) you will provide legitimate and legally recognised identification confirming your age to the driver upon delivery of your order (iii) you accept that failure to provide such identification may result in NAPEX and its employees or agents refusing to deliver your order (iv) you accept that NAPEX and its employees or agents reserve the right not to fulfil delivery of your order if there is any doubt that the identification provided by you is illegitimate, fake or falsified in any way.

 

Delivery windows

For your convenience, we offer a number of windows in which we expect to deliver your order. At checkout, you may select your preferred window and we will make every attempt to deliver within your selected delivery window. In the event that there is a delay, you will be notified as much in advance as possible. Ultimately, the delivery windows are a guide and we are not bound to deliver within the stipulated windows. What we do guarantee is that your order will be delivered within 24 hours of the time of your selected delivery window. That said, the majority of our customers’ orders are delivered within their chosen delivery window and it is always our goal to achieve this. Beyond the delivery window selected at checkout, we are unable to accept requests for deliveries at specific times.

Communicating with you during order processing

While processing your order, we may need to contact you to discuss the availability of items in your order and any suggested replacements. We require your response within 15 minutes of receiving emails or phone calls about any replacements in your order, otherwise, we may deliver only the actual items ordered without including any suggested replacements. At checkout, we ask customers their preferred mode of us communicating with them, this preferred mode of communication however only applies to any update to your order prior to dispatch. Once an order has been dispatched, other communication may be by phone call, so we require you to have your phone readily available.

Access to your delivery location

We always endeavour to deliver your order directly to your doorstep, however if access to your location is limited due to a dilapidated road, flooding, road blocks, civil unrest or any other encumbrances, then we will require you to notify us in advance and also to meet the delivery driver at a convenient and more accessible location. Failure to notify us of any such issues may result in a delay and/or rescheduling of your delivery or a cancellation of your order.

Access within your building

Our delivery drivers are very happy to carry your order to your doorstep and even into your home, if you want them to. If your building has an elevator, the drivers will bring the order to any floor you’re on. If, however, the building has no elevator, the highest floor the drivers will walk up to is the 4th floor (assuming the ground floor is the 1st floor). Also, if your order contains large and/or heavy individual items such as water refill bottles, the driver will only walk up to the 2nd floor (assuming the ground floor is the 1st floor) if the building has no elevator.

Meeting our delivery driver

In order to enable our delivery drivers effect timely deliveries, they are mandated to wait for a maximum of 5 minutes for each customer to receive their orders from them. After contacting a customer and the customer is either unresponsive or fails to show up after 5 minutes, the driver will leave your address. If you are unreachable at the point of delivery, your order may be rescheduled at an additional cost. We will accept no liability for perishable or other items that are damaged due to the wait time.

Treatment Of Our Employees

NAPEX employees always strive to please customers and often go to extra lengths to ensure customers are fully satisfied with the service. We expect that our customers will accord the same courtesy and respect to all our employees they may engage with via email, over the phone or in person. Our employees mean a lot to us and without them, we will not be able to provide the level of service we offer our customers. So, while we will be patient with customers, we will not tolerate any written, verbal or physical abuse to our employees by anyone. Any breach of this by a customer may result in our refusal to fulfil the customer’s order. In such an instance, if the items in the customer’s order have already been picked and paid for, we may decide not to deliver to the customer’s location and instead require the customer to pick up the order at a location of our choosing. If, however, the items have not been purchased, we may process a refund after deducting relevant bank, transactional and operational charges and costs NAPEX may have incurred. NAPEX reserves the right to report any incidence of abuse to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
