Q: What is the Refund Policy for Alcohol Delivery?
A: Refunds will be granted if a customer provides all of the correct and necessary delivery information on their order, but due severe inclement weather or unforseen causes the ordered products cannot be delivered within the day of the order.
If an Alcohol Delivery Order is ordered and paid for, and every possible attempt to deliver it to the provided address is made, but a wrong address is input, and the Call Center or Driver cannot get in contact with customer to obtain another address in a timely manner, the order will be un-refundable if the customer does not provide a different address to the Call Center by 8:30pm.
Also, any attempt at trying to undermine State Laws by trying to obtain alcohol products to under-aged minors will forego the ability to receive a refund from the ordered alcohol products. Local police will also be notified of the incident, and prosecution will be persued to the highest degree.
If the customer is unable to provide a valid ID upon delivery, the order will not be deliverable. The customer will be charged the entire bill unless the alcohol vendor agrees to receive the product back and issue a refund. If the alcohol vendor agrees to refund the order, the customer will only be charged the delivery fee and tip as a courtesy to the driver who put the effort into attempting to pickup and deliver their order. However, if for whatever reason the alcohol vendor cannot receive the product back due to their own policies, the customer will be charged the entire bill without deductions even if the order cannot be delivered because the customer cannot provide a valid ID.
For gift/surprise orders, please make sure to include the recipent's phone number in the delivery note in case the driver has trouble getting someone to answer the door to accept the delivery. NOTE: A valid ID will be required for every delivery that contains alcohol, including no-contact delivery orders. If the recipient cannot provide an ID, the order will not be deliverable. We will attempt to return the product to the store, but if the store denies the refund, you will still be charge the full bill. If the store accepts the return, you will only be charged the tip and delivery fee as a courtesy to the delivery driver.
