Please note some suppliers or merchants use dimensional weight hence weight of packages may vary at times. Additional we advise all customers to take note of the shipping weight and not the item weight when determining the weight of their packages. We at SmartPost believe in fair business practices that will benefit our customers and our business in extension. Reasonable discounts for regular shoppers. Conditions apply.

Customers should inspect packages to ensure all contents are accounted for and in good order before leaving place of business or the presence of the delivery personnel. Failure to do so means the customer has no claim for compensation. Customers should ensure that merchants, suppliers, family or friends securely package fragile or sensitive contents. Clear instructions should be present on such packages. Customers having missing packages must show clear proof that it occurred while in our possession i.e must be signed for by a personnel at our Miramar facility. Only then will a customer have a claim for compensation. At present we are unable to facilitate a return service, but can advise on the most affordable way to have a package returned and the procedures involved when doing so. Also please check with your merchants or suppliers about their return policy.
