Please note that in addition to the above mentioned we are only accepting online orders to be shipped to your door. We are also unable to guarantee any delivery nor accurately forecast processing and delivery times as these are unprecedented conditions.
Orders that are placed before or during this period which do not qualify as essential orders, will be processed and shipped at such time that the lockdown restrictions are relaxed to allow so.
The DIYElectronics team will be working remotely during the lockdown period and we aim to make as many of our typical services available as possible. Our website will be fully operational and we will be working hard to process all essential orders that are placed during this time, our support team will also be available to assist with any technical support as well as our telephonic admin team for relevant queries during this time.
