If you plan to collect goods from our shop, why not phone up and have the order ready to pick up when you arrive?

Call 0800 093 5494

We'll check stock and make sure everything is picked for you to save your time minimise contact.



Our Trade Shop is now open again, still operating with a small staff and reduced opening times (08:00 – 15:00 Monday to Friday)


We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause you and appreciate your understanding.

We will try to keep disruption to a minimum.



We've recently upgraded our computer systems and we may require some additional information from you the first time you order. If you would like to know more about Astleys computer upgrade and how we've been using computers since 1972 click here. 



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic some products have become unavailable. To avoid disappointment, we have indicated where there is no stock on our website. These include all respirators, eye-wear, disposable gloves and clothing.

Additionally, we are aware that some of our suppliers have had to prioritise the manufacture of products and have needed to suspend others. Others have taken the decision to temporarily close for the lock-down period. Whilst, in normal times, we carry healthy stock, our normal replenishment protocols may be thwarted if the product is unavailable when we re-order.

We are working hard to try to maintain supplies. In some instances we may be able to offer alternative products.

Thank you for your understanding.


An update on service levels (07/07/20)

Astleys has remained opened throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic as we were deemed as an essential service by the Government.

We are currently OPEN to continue to support our customers, particularly those within the NHS and the Care Sector and are able to take orders for delivery and pre-arranged collection.

Our business hours have changed to allow us to manage deliveries and collections.

Monday to Friday - 09:00 to 17:00 (16:00 for collections)

Saturday & Sunday - CLOSED

To protect our staff, their families and all those with whom they come into contact, we have REOPENED Astleys Trade Shop, with restricted access and under a skeleton staff until further notice. Other precautions are being taken in regard to deliveries and collections to maintain protective distancing.

The Trade Shop is open Monday - Friday from 08:00 to 15:00.

Please note that our collections service is still in operation - please see below for details.



Please note that we will be operating under a reduced service due to reduced staff levels. Our sales team are available on 0800 093 5494.

We expect to be very busy on the phone lines and would ask you if possible to place your orders by email at sales@astleys.co.uk or via our website.



Some products are currently unavailable, in short supply or on extended lead times. In addition, we are prioritising orders of certain lines for our NHS and Care Sector customers. We thank you for your understanding and consideration.

At this time, we are not able to provide our usual service of sourcing special products.



Whilst we will continue to do all we can to get products to you as soon as possible, at the moment we are unable to achieve our usual standards of service and are not able to guarantee next-day delivery. This is due to stock availability and restricted staff numbers at Astleys as well as with our carriers.

An increasing number of our deliveries will be made utilising our third-party logistics partners.



It is possible to collect goods from our warehouses but only by prior arrangement and subject to strict health and safety instructions.

Please call us on 0800 093 5494. Our sales staff will take your order and payment over the phone and give you a time and instructions for when your order will be available for collection.

Please note that we will not accept CASH or CHEQUES due to the need for handling, but can take payment by card over the phone. In addition, if placing your order on our website you can pay using debit or credit cards or PayPal.


Please note that this is NOT ‘business as usual’ but we do want to try to support those who are working hard to combat the virus and who are maintaining the services and infrastructures upon which we all depend.

You can help by making sure that the only orders you place with us are in accordance with the spirit of this reduced service which is designed to help those supporting the critical needs of the front-line services in the battle against COVID-19.

If we receive orders for products which are non-essential then we will not be able to provide those front-line services with the support and products they desperately require or be able to continue to provide this service. Equally, if you let us know if any items are particularly important, we will try to ensure that they are given absolute top priority.


Thank you for your support and consideration.


We look forward to being able to service your regular requirements as soon as the government makes it clear that it is safe for us to do so and, once again, wish you and your families well at this most difficult of times.
