Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I place an order?

A: Customers can place orders on our website, by calling 0800 660 660, or via email at [email protected] 


Q: Are Trade Centres open? 

A:  Our Trade Centres remain fully operational. See here for up-to-date store trading hours.

We regret to advise we are unable to service customers for personal use at our Trade Centres during Alert Level 3 & 4. 


Q: Do you have any stock of:

  • Respirators
  • Disposable visors
  • Masks
  • Coveralls
  • Gloves

A: Whilst we have good stocks of many items, selected items remain on restricted supply due to global shortages. These are subject to an allocation process, prioritising essential services and customers with existing usage. 


Q: What does ‘restricted supply’ mean?

A: Due to global shortages, some of our website products are tagged as ‘RESTRICTED SUPPLY’. This indicates that any orders of this product will be reviewed before allocation, and in some cases may be unavailable; only able to be supplied in a smaller quantity; or may be supplied gradually over time. 

Essential businesses and emergency services are prioritised, along with customers with a history of usage. This means your Order Acknowledgement or online Order History may show these products in a different quantity, or as on back order. If we are able to supply your order, the confirmed quantity will show on your Advanced Shipping Notice. If we are unable to supply your order, we will contact you within 72 hours.
