6.  Lost parcels

Lost parcels are extremely frustrating for both you and us. We do understand how annoying it is for you and we feel pretty helpless. If you report a parcel as missing, we’ll start a claim as soon as Royal Mail will accept it.  

UK customers will also be asked to fill in a Lost Post form and return  it to Royal Mail.  Non-UK customers will need to submit a claim to their local postal service and provide us with proof of the claim.  This will be used to support our claim to Royal Mail / DPD.

The claim form is  complicated and takes a long time to complete and it must have supporting documentation in the form of filed invoices to facilitate the claim.  This unfortunately takes time so please be patient. 

7.  Damaged Goods

If a parcel has been damed, or the packaging has been ripped / torn, ask the delivery person to make a note of the damage before signing for it.  Please send photographic evidence by email to mom@momsownmilk.com together with your order number within 24 hours of delivery.  Please note, we are not responsible for damaged / missing items that was not not notified to the delivery person at the time of signing for it and no claim will be honoured by any mailing service.
