All shipments must conform to FedEx requirements regarding dangerous goods. To ensure you are in compliance with FedEx dangerous goods requirements, go to www.fedex.com/us/services/options/dangerousgoods, or call 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339 and say “dangerous goods”. Neighborhood Parcel reserves the right to disallow additional goods in the future.

PACKAGING

All customers are required to adequately prepare the contents of their shipments with necessary protective measures to ensure the safety of their shipments. All shipments must be tagged with a secure luggage tag which contains the following information: Name, Address, and Phone Number.

All Items must have a shipping label/airway bill provided by Neighborhood Parcel securely attached to the outside of the Item being shipped and all Items must also include a copy of the shipping label placed inside. Neighborhood Parcel will not be held liable for any shipment delays or lost items due to shipping labels falling off or being removed from the item. Please remove old shipping stickers or labels. Failure to perform these actions may result in a delay of service or a complete loss of your Item and may void any guarantees expressly provided to you below.

REFUSAL OF SHIPMENT

Neighborhood Parcel and our agents reserve the right to hold any shipment that exceeds shipment weight booked by 10lbs or more, or may be deemed undeliverable for any reasons stated in our terms and conditions.

DECLARED VALUE (Insurance)

Each Item will be automatically insured up to $100.00 (EXCLUDING NORMAL, ORDINARY AND CUSTOMARY WEAR AND TEAR). This insurance covers against major damage and/or loss up to the declared value of the item (excluding luggage), but not any of the costs incurred with replacement of those goods. It does not insure, and Neighborhood Parcel is in no way liable, for any subsequent losses resulting from damaged or lost Items. Neighborhood Parcel is not responsible for delays due to factors beyond Neighborhood Parcel’s control including but not limited to, direct or indirect, acts of God, the unavailability or refusal of a person to accept delivery of the shipment; acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority; acts or omissions of customs or similar authorities; Hazardous Materials packages improperly offered for transport; insufficient information provided by a customer; the application of security regulations imposed by the government, or otherwise applicable to the shipment; riots, strikes or other labor disputes; civil unrest; natural disasters; fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake, disruptions in air or ground transportation networks; incomplete or incorrect address information; and/or failure of delivery equipment. Shipment delays due to these occurrences void all responsibility and liability of Neighborhood Parcel. Our Company is in no way liable or responsible for any losses or damages to Items left unattended while waiting for pickup or property left unattended at the final destination.

ADDRESS INFORMATION

Neighborhood Parcel is not responsible for delay or loss of any Item resulting from incorrect, incomplete or invalid address information provided by customer. The customer will be responsible for any charges associated with correcting or changing address information and/or charges associated with returning undeliverable items to the origin address.  Neighborhood Parcel cannot ship to PO Boxes.

SIGNATURE RELEASE

Neighborhood Parcel allows luggage to be delivered without a signature release. It is at the discretion of the Neighborhood Parcel agent to determine if a shipment requires a signature or a release at the time of delivery.  If a delivery signature is desired it is the responsibility of the client to indicate as such at the time of booking. Once any order is processed, Neighborhood Parcel is not responsible for any Item released without signature. If a shipment’s destination is a business or hotel, a signature is required for the drop off. Please verify that someone will be present at the business or hotel if that is the intended drop off location. Neighborhood Parcel will not be liable for delayed shipments due to a business being closed, or the missing presence of an individual to sign for the shipment.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, Neighborhood Parcel will not be liable for delays that occur due to customs inspections for international shipments.  If a shipment is delayed in customs, Neighborhood Parcel will make every possible effort to correct the problem, yet customs delays are out of the realm of Neighborhood Parcel’s authority.  At the time of shipping, a Neighborhood Parcel customer service representative will make all preventative measures possible to reduce the complexity of the customs inspection process.  Any fees incurred during the customs inspection process will be passed on to the customer and included in the final billing statement.  You acknowledge that any goods shipped by Neighborhood Parcel are subject to confiscation by U.S. and foreign customs officials and other similar agencies.

RIGHT TO INSPECT

Neighborhood Parcel and its agents reserve the right to inspect and open any item shipped by Neighborhood Parcel.

LUGGAGE SECURITY

In some cases Homeland Security screeners will have to open your luggage as part of the screening process. If your bag is unlocked agents will simply open and screen the baggage. If bags are locked the screening agent may have to break the locks in order to inspect the bag. ALL INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS MUST BE SCREENED AND ALL INTERNATIONAL LUGGAGE MUST REMAIN UNLOCKED.  Neighborhood Parcel is not liable for damage or delays caused to locked bags that must be opened for customs or security purposes.

DELAYED SHIPMENTS

In the event that an item is delayed, Neighborhood Parcel will make every effort to locate the Item in a timely manner and deliver the Item to its intended destination. Neighborhood Parcel will be in no way responsible for any losses, personal or business related, arising from the delayed Item.  In the event an Item shipped does not arrive on or before the scheduled delivery date (EXCLUDING DELAYS CAUSED BY FACTORS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED), Neighborhood Parcel will provide full reimbursement for the “shipping costs” of the item.  All other reimbursements or expenditures must be approved in advance by Neighborhood Parcel and will vary on a case-by-case basis, not to exceed $100 per item, per day, with a maximum reimbursement of $100.00 per item.  Neighborhood Parcel will not be obligated to refund any charges for any of the following reasons:

  • Shipment was delayed, held, or re-routed due the request or actions of the user as defined in our terms and conditions of our website.
  • The shipment delivery was refused by recipient or if there was no recipient present for shipments requiring delivery signature.
  • The shipment was delayed due to an incorrect address.
  • The shipment was delayed due to Customs clearance.
  • Delivery or Pick up location is considered outside primary service areas.
