We accept no liability if delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available or due to the recipient failing to divert order to safe-place, neighbour or closest Parcel Drop-Off or Locker.

Furthermore, please note that by leaving instructions for a delivery to be left in a specific place, it is not the responsibility of Leonidas Kensington if it goes missing and a replacement/refund will not be considered.

Secure Packaging

To ensure your order arrives with you in perfect condition, we have our specially-designed outer polystyrene casing which protects the fresh Belgian chocolates from temperature changes in transit, for use in our warmer months. We also use environmentally friendly packing for our smaller ballotins. All orders are wrapped in tissue, for a gift presentation. Our Luxury gift boxes have been chosen as they provide a hard firm casing.

To help complete your gifts, you also will be able to add your own free personal message which you can add in the notes section when you get to the checkout or feel free to give us a call on 0207 938 3159

Hot Weather Dispatch

When we look forward to an extended summer period, we bring to your attention that hot temperatures are not ideal to dispatching chocolate.

While our warehouse is temperature and humidity controlled, once your order leaves with our couriers DPD & Royal Mail they are very much open to temperature fluctuations.

Please note that while it might not be very hot where you are, the delivery may have to travel across most of the country to get to you, passing through many warmer locations in the process.

We can not accept responsibility for DPD or Royal Mail leaving your parcel in the sun/heat or melted chocolates.

If you are not happy to take the responsibility for the delivery then please leave us a dispatch date in the comments at checkout of order and we will dispatch it to you then.

We also recommend you only use next day/express so it is out of the delivery network as soon as possible.
