Orders & Delivery

Are you offering contactless pick-ups and Click & Collect in-store?

Yes, when you come to pick-up at our loading docks or ‘Click & Collect’ in-store our team will ask for your name and confirm details in our system and then will either load the stock into your vehicle or direct you to your ‘Click & Collect’ order without the need to exchange documentation and/or physically sign for the order.

 

Can I still receive delivery of larger items like furniture?

Yes, our delivery partner Unitrans is still operating. Home deliveries are continuing to take place for larger items like furniture. You will continue to receive notifications that your order is ready and awaiting delivery and be given options on how to book this delivery.

 

Are deliveries still running on time?

As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, some orders maybe subject to delay due to the ongoing global challenges and with production shut down or production capacity reduced with some of our overseas manufacturers.  We are working with our partners to minimise the impact of these potential delays and ensure that your order is fulfilled as soon as possible.

 

What additional measures have you implemented to protect me when making a delivery?

Our delivery partner, Unitrans and their drivers are adhering to their own strict health and safety guidelines which are in line with freedoms own response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes:

 

  • Frequent hand sanitization
  • Daily vehicle cleaning
  • Full health and safety protocol for all distribution and delivery team members

 

Additionally, Unitrans have implemented ‘contactless delivery’ across their teams, this includes the following changes to our delivery protocols:

 

  • As of Monday 18 May, all deliveries will be to the ground floor room of the customer’s choice. Notification of drop off areas will be arranged during the booking of deliveries with the customer.
  • Our delivery teams will not unpack product and/or assemble products.
  • No proof of delivery signature will be obtained due to social distancing. The delivery team will photograph product delivery and indicate on the ‘proof of delivery’ that the delivery was success and is complete.
  • In a circumstance where the product is unable to be delivered, then an ‘Authority To Leave’ (ATL) in a safe place, suitably weather protected will be obtained from the customer.

 

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

When you receive your SMS message to book a delivery, you can let us know that you’re self-isolating or do not want to come into contact with our delivery teams and we will rebook your delivery for at least 14 days later. You can also book a later date via the automated system as per the link on the SMS message.
