During the shutdown we will be operating from a “closed site” and offering a delivery-only service. Please do not arrive at 20 Goodshed Road with the expectation of collecting equipment, as the refusal will probably offend.

5. Health & Safety is still important

Your safety is of paramount importance to us. As we cannot provide paper copies of important health & safety information we refer you to our website for important information on how to safely use the equipment. Please read this before using the equipment.
