Covid19 – Coronavirus Update

Delivery Status April 22nd: Unaffected

Supply

On March 17th, numerous quarries in Spain stopped production, and staff have, rightly so, self-isolated to help stop the spread of Covid-19. This, naturally, has had an effect on production and therefore supply within the UK.

Buy Roof Slate Ltd are in a fortunate position due to our stockpiling and wholesale strategy. By purchasing slate in bulk, we get the best rates available. This means we usually have over 1 million slate in stock.

During this difficult time for the nation, we will be reducing prices on specific slates to help support homeowners and small businesses across the UK. At present (April 8th), we have 1,045,245 slates in stock.

Stocktake figures as of April 8th 2020

Logistics

As a family-run business, we are dedicated to ensuring our team is safe and secure during this precarious time. In the event of a lockdown, we will be answering phone calls and responding to enquiries from home. Our setup allows us to offer an unparalleled service from anywhere in the world. However, over the coming weeks, we may be presented with delivery difficulties. Our typical method is via the Palletways network, a network of nationwide independent distributors. In the event of a lockdown, our customers may be facing waiting times up to 2 weeks for delivery. This may change over the course of the next few weeks, depending on how GOV chooses to tackle the virus. If you have any questions regarding a delivery, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Donations

We are donating £50 for every order over £1,000 (net). By doing so, we are supporting the lifeline that has, and continues to, support us during this pandemic. At present, we are splitting donations 50/50. 50% goes to the NET, a collective of charities which directly supports the families affected by Covid19. The remaining 50% goes to “NHS Charities Together”. This charity directly supports the NHS.

Summary

Our customers, past and present, are treasured individuals and businesses. We all have families and friends, and as a community, we must all work as a team to ensure we come out of the other side of this together. Look after each other, be kind to each other, and please reach out to us if we can help you in any way.

Best wishes,
Ethan, Jamie and Paul.
