Delivery – Delivery charges are at cost. The courier promises, normally, overnight delivery to anywhere in Bulgaria and each shipment may contain any amount of frozen goods. For more information, please see the internet site of Econt Couriers.
Please note that it is highly preferable for us to send any frozen goods to an Econt office for the client to pick up rather than to an address to minimise transit time.If  the client chooses to order frozen goods to go to an address/village address, this will be at client risk as the courier may experience delays in delivery
We deliver all over Bulgaria, Romania and Greece to your home address or any Econt office in the country, including frozen products in thermally lined boxes.
