Frequently Asked Questions...

Letterbox Drop


Do you deliver in the rain?

Definitely not. We do not deliver in extreme weather conditions either. This means that your leaflets do not get wet and become unusable. (Unlike the others, who have to meet deadlines for the papers.)


Will my flyer get lost amongst the larger catalogues?

In most areas, we do not deliver Catalogues or Newspapers. We deliver only DL, A5 or A4 folded to DL/A5. This gives a greater chance that your flyer will be SEEN and not hidden amongst larger items. VISIBILITY is everything.


How do I know that the flyers are delivered correctly?

Weekly random audits are carried out by a variety of checking procedures in place including spot checking, instant checking of deliveries whilst they are working and householders who are paid to confirm deliveries. We are currently trialling GPS tracking as well.


How can I pay my invoice?

Payment is required prior to work start. Payment can be made via PayPal, EFT into our bank or in cash.


Do you estimate over or under ?

We underestimate the quantity of letterboxes in each area. This means we will always run out of your flyers before we run out of streets.


Do you deliver to “No Junk Mail”?

We respect the wishes of residents. Any letterbox displaying a "NO JUNK MAIL" sign will not be delivered.


Do you hire kids for delivery?

No, we do not hire kids. This ensures that your flyers are delivered professionally and correctly. We have a dedicated team of adult distributors who are supervised on a daily basis & are trained correctly on flyer distribution.
