COVID-19 TERMS AND CONDITIONS UPDATE 3 APRIL 2020
We have received a clearance from the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment to give you access to deliver Fitness equipment under the essential goods provision in a safe non - contact way to your door. Deliveries will be 1-person only so we will not be able to lift large equipment such as treadmills into difficult locations, or ask for your help. If our delivery staff are uncertain or feel unsafe they will not be made to deliver.
All our stores are obviously closed due to COVID-19 but you can order online (where stock available) to purchase or hire equipment. Please place a submission online and our local team will be in contact generally in the same day.
We are committed to following the Government guidelines while we fulfil your essential orders and work within the rules. Our local operators are working from home and will aim to serve you as soon as possible, and our delivery team have the relevant protective gear when completing deliveries.
Delivery conditions: Non contact delivery to your property - preferably a garage - we will not come in to your home but will call you on our way to ensure seamless service.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to being able to serve you soon.
