Is it still safe to receive parcels?

Yes. Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving paper parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19). It is understood that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects such as letters or parcels.

Should I be concerned about touching an order I have received or collected?

Public Health England has said that there’s no current evidence to suggest that the virus can be transmitted from packages. 

What if I am self-isolating or do not wish to come into contact with a delivery driver?

All carriers are:

  • encouraging all customers to use the alternative delivery options available to them (such as leave in a safe place) so they do not have to receive parcels directly from the courier or have to sign for them.
  • not handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures.
  • asking drivers to log the name of the person accepting the item.
  • posting a customer contact card to advise of other ways to arrange receiving delivery.

How can I return an item?

Please follow the instructions included with your order. If you are self-isolating and you are not able to leave your house, please contact our customer service team and we will help.

If I return an order, will it take longer than normal?

Online returns are running slower than normal and you may see a slight delay. Thank you for your patience.

Is click and collect still available?

We are currently not offering a click and collect service.
