I don’t mean to alarm you but Bunnings Warehouse now has a drive-up services to get you through the ongoing coronavirus pandemic without having to leave your car.
We’ve all got a shit-tonne of spare time on our hands because we can’t leave the house anymore, so naturally, we’re all heading to Bunnings to stock up on DIY supplies. Thankfully, the hardware giant has answered our prayers and is now offering a drive-up service to keep you safe and socially distanced while buying the supplies for your latest project.
250 of the largest Bunnings stores in the country will roll out the new ‘Drive and Collect’ measure after it was announced on Thursday.
The system basically works as a click-and-collect service, in which, customers will order online and come into the store to pick up their order. However, Bunnings is going a step further and will actually load your goods into the boot of your car so you don’t have to walk around the store and risk breaking social distancing protocol.
All you need to do is call or text the store when you arrive, then they load it into your car for a completely contactless experience.
“We’re taking a common sense approach to finding ways to quickly adapt our business,” Bunnings managing director Mike Schneider said on Thursday.
‘This is just another example of how we are adapting our business to this changing environment and our store teams are doing their best to provide customers with the best service, while keeping everyone safe.”
According to Schneider, Bunnings is looking for ways to “continue to safely serve [their] retail customers and enable tradies to keep their businesses running.”
Unfortunately, some of the smaller stores aren’t participating in the scheme, so customers are encouraged to check the Bunnings website to confirm if their local store offers the service.
The only thing we need now is a drive-through sausage sizzle. Bunnings, you know what to do.
