Customer info re: Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic - the situation in constantly evolving and we continue to update our website as circumstances change.

For the time being, and in line with government advice, we are operating a limited service for customers. Our online shop orders are being dealt with and dispatched, though please allow up to 72 hours for delivery at the moment.
For tanks, drums and large items all our dispatch/delivery/collection services are operating as per normal, however our usual delivery times may be a little longer.
Customers coming to collect can do so from our Milkwall, Station Road premises during the week but by appointment only. This is for the health and safety of staff, customers and drivers alike. Ring 01594 833308 for more information. Drivers and visitors are asked to adhere to the new procedures put in place following the latest government guidelines. We will deal with all collections at our gates under these new procedures, no drivers or members of the public will be allowed on site. We are following the latest government guidelines and ask that customers, visitors, delivery/collection drivers do too, by adhering to social distancing and following hygeine advice as recommended. You will find our staff will be doing the same.
Our main premises will not be open on Saturdays for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to monitor the situation and want to send all the best to our customers in these difficult times.
