COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Update

UPDATE 08/06/2020

WELCOME BACK!

Toowoomba Saddlery gates are open once more

While Toowoomba Saddlery has remained open for online and phone orders with contact-less collection throughout the pandemic, physical entry to the warehouse by visitors has been restricted – until now.
In response to the governments stage 2 of easing restrictions, we have decided that now is the right time to re-open our gates to visitors and welcome you inside the warehouse.

You can now visit our warehouse in person to:
• Place, collect and pay for your order
• Select your leather
• View our saddle stock
8am – 4pm Monday to Friday

To protect customers and staff and prevent the spread of Corona Virus (COVID-19) Toowoomba Saddlery will continue to maintain good hygiene practices and limit personal contact.
Visitor entry is remains through the main shed gate, not the office.

We do ask that all visitors abide by social distancing rules, use the provided hand sanitiser and follow staff direction as necessary. Cashless payment options are preferred.
If you are unwell, please delay visiting until you are feeling better.

For those relying on freight: Australia Post and Star Track do continue to experience delays.

UPDATE 20/03/2020

WE ARE OPEN

Please be reassured that Toowoomba Saddlery is open as usual, 8am – 4pm Weekdays (QLD time)  and at this stage all employees of Toowoomba Saddlery retain overall good health and are not known to have, or have been exposed to the Corona Virus.

That being said, the safety of our customers and employees is our priority, and to this end we are employing a number of measures to help prevent the spread of infection.

  • We’re asking our team members to maintain high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, to practise social distancing where possible, to stay home if they are at all unwell, and to self-isolate if required.  
  • If you are unwell or simply wish to be cautious, please place your orders and enquiries via phone, email or website – many of you use these methods already.
  • Visitor entry is currently through the main shed gate, not the office.


Will the Corona Virus affect orders?

At this stage leather supply is unaffected, if this changes we will be sure to notify you.
New shipments of hardware may be delayed, however our current hardware stocks remain plentiful for most items.

Australia Post and Star Track have both advised that there may be delays to their delivery services. They have also made alternative arrangements for services that normally require signature upon delivery: For more information see their update:  https://startrack.com.au/alerts

We hope everyone is staying safe and well
