1. What measures has Corney & Barrow implemented internally in the light of Covid-19?

We continue to follow government advice regarding working practice. Our office teams across the UK and Asia have been working remotely since Wednesday 18th March. Our warehouses have enhanced hygiene procedures. For example, common areas (eg surfaces such as door knobs, light switches, banisters etc) are regularly disinfected throughout the day, and sanitisers are in place throughout. Finally, drivers of inbound deliveries remain in their vehicles at all time.

2. What is the range of wines you have to offer?

Corney & Barrow searches the wine world to bring delicious, exciting wines to your door. Wines for everyday drinking or for your most special occasions, and to suit every budget.

3. What new measures are in place for home deliveries?

At the start of their shift all drivers will be provided with equipment to sanitise their vehicle. All drivers should be in possession of Disposable Gloves, Hand Sanitiser and a Face Masks. When making deliveries to Private Customers drivers should not enter a customer’s premises unless requested to do so. The wine should be placed at the customer’s door and the driver should knock on the door, step back and wait for the customer to answer the door. The driver will sign the delivery note / EPOD device on behalf of the customer.

4. What new measures are in place for on-trade deliveries?

When making deliveries to On Trade Customers drivers should not enter the customer’s premises unless requested to do so. If the customer asks the driver to deliver inside the premises he should take the wine to wherever the customer has requested, keeping his distance at all times. The OT customer will be asked to sign either the electronic EPOD device or a paper copy, whichever he feels more comfortable with. If the OT customer will not sign either POD, then the driver will sign the delivery note / EPOD device on the customers behalf.

5. I am self-isolating, do I have to inform C&B? Are you taking any extra precautions when delivering?

When ordering, please would you inform us you are self-isolating. You can do this in the comments section at checkout. The van driver will then be informed as part of the delivery instructions, and will then follow a ‘knock, drop and go’ policy.
