The item I ordered did not arrive

If your item did not arrive the first thing to do is request a “track and trace” on your item from the Post Haste web site.


Alternatively you can call Post Haste on 0800 106 828

If the “track and trace” on your order indicates that it has been delivered, but you’re unable to find it or it hasn’t been delivered within the timeframe we will start an investigation with Post Haste on your behalf.

Regrettably, neither RC Hobbies nor Post Haste are able to refund or replace items that have been lost, damaged or stolen after being delivered to your property. If you are concerned about leaving your items unattended we recommend using “Signature Required” option which is our default option unless advise by the Buyer to use the “No Signature Required” option.
