How are your goods packed?
We use strengthened recycled material only. Original cases are carefully repacked and original producer packaging will accompany the consignment, e.g if we are shipping a 450cl bottle of wine with OWC, these will be meticulously wrapped and shipped as two separate items under separate tracking numbers.
I am based in the USA, will you keep me informed every step of the way until my order is delivered?
Yes, once the order has been paid for in full we firstly keep you posted on transportation of your order from its current location to the outbound shipping company. Once your order has safely arrived with the shipping company, your order will be repacked, paperwork will be raised and your order will be processed for collection and customs processing. Once your order has left the shipping company, you will be provided with a Unique Tracking Number URL so you can keep an eye out on all shipping movements until final delivery.
