No carrier will take responsibility for the possible damage of glass ware, however we pack every order as safe and securely as possible and very rarely have we had any type of problem with any aspect of delivery but this does mean that we can not insure glass and by ordering glass items you accept responsibility for any damage.
As an environmentally aware company we recycle packaging materials where possible, including shredding waste paper as packing, while this may not always look the prettiest option it saves a lot of waste materials.
