Product & Supply Updates

Updated: 25/01/2023

As the UK emerges from the challenges caused by COVID-19 and disruptions to the global supply chain, we’re starting to see business return to normal with the supply of many products stabilising. However, with the new year came new challenges, soaring gas and electricity costs mean that manufacturers have been forced to increase the prices we all pay for goods.

The situation in Ukraine is causing oil and fuel costs to soar, meaning that we’re all paying more at the pumps, and unfortunately, haulage and delivery companies have increased their prices and fuel surcharges by up to 30% as a direct result.

We’re monitoring the situation closely with our delivery partners, and whilst we anticipate this being a temporary situation, costs may increase further before things get better, therefor the delivery charges advertised in the basket are the best we can offer right now.

We still offer everyday low prices and aim to be as competitive as possible, this is an explanation for some prices and delivery charges being higher than usual, we hope you can understand.

How to limit the impact of price rises:

  • Don’t delay: If possible, order as soon as you can, as we’re seeing increases in the frequency of price rises from suppliers.
  • Plan ahead: Plan your entire project and ensure everything is ordered in advance to save on multiple delivery charges.
