Due to current social distancing rules and having staff working from home we are no longer able to work to a 24 hour service level agreement to dispatch orders. Orders will be dispatched as quickly as we can while adhering to the new government restrictions. Thanks for your understanding.
We only deliver to the billing address. If you change the shipping address once you reach the payment website your order may not be processed but may still be charged. If this happens we will issue a full refund less processing fee. If you want an order delivered to a different address please contact us before placing your order so we can give you our bank details for bank transfer. All Payments will show as being made to Carako. Strict Master will not show on your payment or card statement.
