Coronavirus FAQs

1. Can you place an order and are we still delivering?

Yes, to both. CruiseTech has continued to operate throughout. You can still place an order, and orders are still being delivered.

2. Has our dispatch times changed?

No, our dispatch times have not changed. We have continued to maintain our same-day dispatch policy, as long as you order by 11am. We are open Monday to Friday, so orders placed on the weekend will be dispatched on Monday.

We use premium couriers, so orders should typically be delivered the next working day after dispatch - for Friday, this will be Monday. Our experience has been the majority of orders have been following this, but in unprecedented times it cannot be guaranteed.

3. Can you return your order?

Yes, our usual return policy applies.

4. Is it safe to order items online?

Online retail is being actively encouraged, and postal and delivery service is running as normal.

5. What precautions are we taking?

The health, safety & well being of our staff is taken seriously. We are complying with Government guidance on social distancing (and the COVID Secure Workplace guideline). Sanitiser gel has been made available in all areas of our premises, our staff have been instructed to follow the best practice in handwashing & cleaning. Surfaces are cleaned more frequently, such as door handles. Staff who can work remotely, are encouraged to do so.

 

While the guidance suggests that packages are unlikely to transmit coronavirus, orders are wiped down with a cleaning solution pre-shipping (this evaporates quickly & is not expected to leave any lasting smell). If you would like to request a non-alcohol based cleaning solution (e.g. for religious or other reasons), just let us know at the point of order (via email at contact@cruisetech.co.uk). The staff packaging the order will wear gloves.

The HEPA air purification system has been proactively installed in the area where the orders are packaged. It will remove 99.97% of airborne ultrafine particles, dust, allergens, gases as small as 0.003um. This is aimed to enhance the general air quality, creating a cleaner workplace, and not related to COVID-19 (which is smaller than what the commercial HEPA systems could often filter).
