As from this weekend (19th April) and until further notice, due to the current climate (COVID 19) the Manchester warehouse will be closed every Sunday Only between 12pm and 7pm, during this time the site will operate on a call out basis so access to the site will still be possible if parts are needed.

Recap of Changes to FSL and PUDO counter service arrangements

Customers will be served at counters on the basis of ‘one in and one out’, so that they are served individually at counters. The same protocols apply to couriers collecting parts from an FSL  Where customers need to queue either inside or outside or the FSL or PUDO, we ask that they respect the 2m distance rule to other people around them, to observe social distancing measures published by the Government.

Our teams will continue to work diligently to serve customers as quickly as possible so they can continue on their business once served, but within the process listed above.
We understand that this may create some frustration on occasion as it may take longer for customers to collect or return parts to FSL and PUDO locations and we ask for your understanding and support in implementing this protocol.
