One of the biggest issues affecting everyone at the moment is the massive inflation of product price. There is hardly an area not affected by energy costs; from raw-material production, manufacturing, all the way through to shipping and final delivery.

Astleys has done everything possible to mitigate increases, but the enormity of some of these has meant that we have been forced to pass on supplier price increases.

But, we may be able to offer a solution! Talk to us about alternatives that may be able to save you money, we have many products that can provide cost-in-use reductions. For instance, we prioritise concentrated cleaning chemicals through dilution control which can provide equal, if not superior performance for a fraction of the cost. These concentrates often provide a more environmentally-friendly solution, too.

Let us know how we can help.



Our sales team are available on 0800 093 5494.

Our phone lines can be very busy at peak times, so if you prefer, please place your orders by email at sales@astleys.co.uk or via our website.



The majority of our orders are delivered next day on orders placed before 2 p.m.

Depending on where you are, deliveries will be made on our own vans or via our third-party logistics partners, who we've worked with for many years.



It is possible to collect goods from our warehouses by prior arrangement.

Please call us on 0800 093 5494. We 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 do not accept CASH due to the need for handling, but can take payment by card in person or over the phone. In addition, if placing your order on our website you can pay using debit or credit cards and PayPal.


Thank you for your support and consideration.
