How we’re keeping you safe:

We’ve added lots of new safety measures at our stores. They’re all clearly signposted. We’re also asking all of our colleagues to wear face coverings where possible.

Most importantly, we ask that you please don’t visit our stores if you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19. This includes using our drive-thru collection service.

Here’s how you can help keep everyone safe...

  • In England and Scotland, it is now mandatory to wear a face covering when shopping with us.
  • Please follow the signs and keep 2m from other customers and colleagues.
  • As we’re limiting the number of customers inside our stores at any one time, there might be a short wait. Thanks for bearing with us.
  • Please follow the one-way arrows around the store.
  • Please avoid touching products where you can.
  • Please use the anti-bacterial gel available throughout the store.
  • Please use a card or contactless for payment where possible.

To keep you safe we’ve added safety screens at our till points and customer service desk. And we’re upping our cleaning efforts – sanitising trollies, baskets, demo products and more to keep you safe.

Delivery for big items

We’re re-introducing our delivery service to a room of your choice for big items (TVs over 40” and kitchen appliances), if you’d prefer a delivery to your front door only, we can do that too. We’ll give you a call on the day of your delivery, just let us know what you’d prefer.

Please maintain the recommended social-distancing gap of 2m from our delivery teams at all times and where possible have doors open so we don’t need to touch door handles.

We’re also taking extra steps to make sure our teams are delivering safely:

  • We’re asking our teams to wear face coverings where possible
  • We’re using anti-bac gel and cleaning wipes before and after every delivery
  • We’re wearing appropriate protection equipment
  • We’re maintaining 2m social distancing at all our distribution sites
  • We’re completing temperature checks before shifts
  • We’re keeping the same delivery partners working together where possible
  • We’re following the latest government advice to self-isolate if we’re experiencing any Coronavirus symptoms or need to quarantine as per government advice (this may mean that some deliveries are changed last minute, we’re working hard to minimise this)

Delivery service for small items

Our courier partners (DPD and Royal Mail) have all updated their delivery processes to take extra precautions due to Coronavirus.

  1. Please use the DPD app to nominate a ‘safe place’ for your delivery to be left. If you’re not able to use the DPD app, DPD is still able to offer a contact-free delivery. They will take a picture of your property and capture a proof of delivery name instead of capturing your signature. You’re also able to use the DPD app to change the date of your delivery.
  2. Royal Mail is an unsigned service. Where Royal Mail needs to deliver a parcel, its teams will place the parcel at your door. Having knocked on the door, the delivery teams will step aside to a safe distance while the item is retrieved. If the delivery cannot take place, Royal Mail will take the parcel to the local depot for you to collect. The parcel will be held for 18 days as per normal process.
  3. To see the courier partner for your delivery, please check your dispatch confirmation email (which will also include your tracking reference).

  3. Open windows in the room where we'll be working and where possible have doors open so we don’t need to touch door handles
  4. Our install crews continue to follow the latest government advice on self-isolation or quarantine – this means that some install services may be changed last minute – please bear with us, we will get to you as quick as we can

All installations are completed at the discretion of our install teams. If we’re unable to complete your install for any reason, we’ll discuss alternative arrangements with you.

If you’ve got installation on your order, then we’ll disconnect your old appliance for you. If not, please make sure it is safely disconnected before our teams arrive.

Please note, gas and hardwired electrical products will need to be disconnected by a qualified professional.

Care services (extended warranty and repairs)

For our extended warranty customers (Care & Repair, Repair & Support Plan or Care Plan), our repair lead times may be longer than usual. We’re prioritising key workers and vulnerable customers where possible. If your tech is still working and only needs a minor repair, you may have a longer wait time whilst we focus our team on big fixes – we’ll be able to advise when you get in touch.

Extended warranty customers:

Please contact us on 0344 561 1234 or contact us here to book your product for a repair. For items that need to be taken to our specialist repair centre (like TVs or laptops), we’ll arrange to collect your product from your home.

If you’re a critical worker, or an extremely vulnerable/shielding customer ( as defined by the UK government), please mention this when you contact us. We’re trying to prioritise getting to you first.

Where home visits are required for household appliance repairs, we’re also taking extra precautions to keep customers and our repair engineers safe:

  1. Our repair crews will take all necessary safety precautions, including using antibacterial gel before and after every visit and will use cleaning wipes where possible.
  2. We’ll call you before your appointment. If anyone at the property is isolating due to potential exposure, we won’t be able to complete the appointment and will re-schedule.
  3. We ask that you stay 2m away from our repair engineers at all times and ideally in another room while they work on your appliance. Don’t worry, they’ll still show you that everything is up and running (or advise on next steps) before leaving.
  4. Our repair engineers are also following latest government advice and self-isolating where they need to. This means that your repair appointment may be changed at the last minute. Please bear with us if this happens, we’ll get to you as quickly as we can.

Instant Replacement plans:

If you have an Instant Replacement agreement (products under £150), we’re really sorry, but we’re not able to support you until our shops re-open and our repair operation returns to normal.

We know this will be disappointing for many customers, but we’re trying to focus our teams on those customers who need our help the most.

Chargeable repairs:

For customers without an extended warranty agreement, we’re reintroducing our chargeable repair services for household appliances, TVs and laptops. Please contact our customer services team or click here for the options available to you.
