PRODUCT AVAILABILITY UPDATE


Unprecedented social, economic and political factors, have resulted in large scale disruptions to many global supply chains. Unfortunately, this is impacting the availability and lead times on some of our products. The team is working hard with our suppliers to resolve these issues, and we apologise for any disappointment experienced. The latest and most accurate stock levels are continually updated on our website.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that lead times from our suppliers can change even after your order is confirmed, especially for high demand products. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these unforeseen delays.

COVID-19 UPDATE


As lockdown restrictions ease across the country, we continue to maintain a range of safety measures to protect our distribution team and ensure a safe working environment. Despite the easing of certain restrictions in some sectors, we still need to adhere to safety guidelines laid out by the Government – the health of our workforce is paramount.

In the face of the unprecedented volume of customers which we are currently experiencing, this can occasionally challenge our capacity and may impact our service levels, or those of our delivery partners. We are working as efficiently as possible to maintain the outstanding service and delivery times that you have become accustomed to. We apologise in advance for any delays, but ultimately the safety of our employees and their families remains our priority. That said, please know that behind the scenes we're making heroic efforts day and night to get your orders to you quickly. Should things not go to plan, we thank you for your patience, understanding and loyalty.
