COVID-19 and deliveries - up to date information
Whilst COVID-19 presents a serious threat to people, workers and businesses around our country, it is important to know how this might be affecting deliveries.
Caravan Cover Shop feels it is important to keep our Customers and site visitors up-to-date with how the freight industry is being affected, and how these issues are impacting on deliveries of our products.
Right now all freight companies around Australia are facing considerable challenges. Due to there being limited cargo flights around the country, goods are being transported by road, which is impacting on delivery schedules.
Another big factor affecting delivery scheduling is the huge increase in online shopping seen by Australian consumers during the lock-down period.
In spite of these impacts, as of today October 10 all Caravan Cover Shop packages from each of our many Suppliers continue to make their way around Australia, and on average are taking less than 10 days to transport between NSW and WA.
Caravan Cover Shop uses the following National courier services:
Sendle / Transdirect / Australia Post / Aramex (formerly Fastway) / Couriers Please
The company websites for these above courier services are continually being monitored for updates to their delivery scheduling.
All courier companies have introduced additional precautions to ensure the ongoing safety of their workers and the public.
In line with new 'social distancing' practices, delivery contractors have updated their delivery methods to ensure the safety for all people concerned.
This might mean that any 'Signature On Delivery' items are automatically changed to 'Authority To Leave' to reduce unnecessary contact with members of the public.
In such cases the delivery driver will leave written notification detailing where the item has been left.
Caravan Cover Shop will ensure this page is regularly updated whilst the threat of the COVID-19 virus has an impact on deliveries of our products.
