UK Gym Pits and the COVID-19 situation

We understand how important it is to keep a sense of structure and normalcy in these trying times. As of 1st November 2020, UK Gym Pits is operating and dispatching orders. Our team is functioning with the minimum amount of staff required to perform basic business operations. We are available to answer any questions or concerns you have via messenger, email or phone - please do not hesitate to contact us as we are always here to help.

Unfortunately, some of our suppliers have limited or ceased their manufacturing capabilities but, between us we carry a lot of stock and many items are available and ready for despatch. However, it is always advisable to contact us first to make sure we have the item(s) in stock before placing an order online. Where manufacturing or the importing of certain products is required, please allow for longer lead times during these unprecedented times. We will continue to ship parcels and pallets as government policies and freight suppliers permit. However, transit times may be affected by COVID-19 restrictions in your region, which are outside our control.

We would like to assure everyone that UK Gym Pits is providing the best service possible at this time. We are committed, like many of you, to stop the spread of the virus and will continue to abide by government guidelines. We appreciate that you may no longer be able to train with your local club and we hope you find our home use equipment useful during this unprecedented time.

 Stay safe and we will get through this together

UK Gym Pits are committed to providing you with a delivery service which is within the time specified and ensuring the goods you order reach you without any defects or damage through transit. We use reputable delivery companies and strive to the best costs and services available.

We and our suppliers carry stock on a large amount of our products but, due to the amount of product variations we offer (sizes, colours etc.) some products may be manufactured to order. Stocked items are normally despatched/delivered within 2-3 days from order. Manufacturing and delivery of non-stocked items is approximately 1-2 weeks from order (unless stated otherwise within the products description) so, it is advisable to contact us prior to ordering to check whether we have the items you require in stock. Information on whether the item is a stocked or manufactured item and an idea on lead times is detailed within the products description. We combine delivery costs, you will charged for the item with the highest delivery cost and an additional cost of £4.99 for each item thereafter. If you have a large order, we will be happy to advise you on an alternative shipping method and a cost combining those products. If you have any questions regarding your order, information on payments and delivery of stocked or non-stocked items please do not hesitate to contact us (email - info@ukgympits.co.uk or telephone - 01780 784138).
