Are we still delivering?

Yes, in line with the UK Government recommendations, we are continuing to send parcels out to customers who purchase online. 

 

The latest guidance for ecommerce businesses from the Government states [ref]:

“Online retail is still open and encouraged and postal and delivery service will run as

normal.” 

 

We are, however, taking every precaution so that none of our staff are put in harm's way.

 

What is happening in our offices?

To ensure the safety of our staff, many of whom had to travel on public transport, we took the decision early on to introduce working from home.

 

As of this moment, all members of staff are working from home, and the office is closed. This measure was put in place on the 16th March 2020, and will remain in place until the Government advice says that offices and workplaces should be reopened.

 

What is happening in our warehouse?

From 5 March 2020

  • Discouraged face-to-face meetings with all clients, suppliers and other visitors
  • Asked anybody who visits us to disclose if they or their colleagues have travelled outside of the UK

 

What about the couriers?

We tend to use either Royal Mail or DPD as a courier, information from them is:

 

Royal Mail

“Royal Mail is actively monitoring this rapidly evolving situation. We have strong contingency plans in place to ensure our customers are looked after and mail is kept moving in the event of localised service disruption.”
