    • the homeowner answers the NHS COVID-19 questions to our satisfaction; and
    • our delivery team are satisfied that they can deliver inside safely.  
  • We are still delivering to the outside of residential properties.

  • Where possible, please only touch what you plan to buy inside our stores. 
  • If you are feeling unwell, please don’t visit one of our stores. Give us a call or order online instead.  If you are unwell and are receiving a delivery, please let us know in advance so we bring enough labour to unload and so you can keep a safe distance.
