BUSINESS AS USUAL.
DELIVERIES ARE GOING AHEAD WITH SOME DELAYS 20/05/2020
As with any responsible business and individual our first priority is safety. Safety to us means the health, safety and well-being of staff, customers and the population at large. We will adhere strictly to Government Guidelines and will take any action that we percieve to be responsible or within a duty of care to protect all parties.
Our staff and suppliers are working tirelessly to keep business running as normal for all our customers.
As of 25/03/2020 many of our suppliers have announced that they are not currently going to be able to deliver to the following postcode locations:
IV, KW, PA, PH and other remote locations.
1-4-2020: Norland, Palmako and Eurovudas deliveries to Sctoland are currently suspended owing to carriers limitations. We are hopeful that this will be short term and that deliveries will re-commence very soon.
With the closure of many hotels and B&Bs the drivers are not able to make deliveries to these areas without a stop over in line with the legal driving requirements. Please contact us if you are in any doubt before placing an order
The above are mainly two man deliveries. Owing to Social distancing our suppliers are taking the view that at the moment it is potentially unsafe to have two people in one vehicle.
Clearly in light of the current situation, regardless of our efforts, certain products may have a rather extended leadtime on stated schedules from order to delivery. We are working with suppliers and transport companies to ensure that where there are delays, it is kept to a minimum.
ALL ORDERS WILL BE DELIVERED. It is not a question of If, it is simply a question of When.
Many delivery companies are now running a non-contact delivery service where they will ask you to kindly remain in the house whilst your delivery is carried out, this is to protect both you and the delivery staff and to comply with the social distancing advice put forward by the government.
In the event that the country is placed on lockdown and deliveries forced to stop then orders will be delivered as statute and logistics permit:
Orders will be placed on hold and will be delivered as the government permits.
We will keep the website updated and all staff briefed daily as the situation evolves.
Please keep watch over your emails and spam folder for further information relating to existing orders however for the moment at least we are very much running as business as usual.
