COVID-19 and deliveries

Dear Valued Customer

Dry-it-Out would like to inform you of our current situation and protocols concerning COVID-19.

We are monitoring this situation very closely and wish to reiterate that the health of our employees and individuals we come into contact with is of the upmost importance to us.

We can confirm that a number of precautionary steps have already been taken to protect our people and the service we provide. These measures include:
  • Extensive communication to all employees regarding the importance of following basic hygiene protocols in line with World Health Organisation and Public Health England guidance. (This predominantly relates to washing hands regularly and good hygiene relating to coughs and sneezes.)
  • Increased antibacterial cleaning regularly throughout all sites.


In order to further protect drivers and customers alike from the risk of infection whilst delivering parcels our couriers, APC Overnight, have implemented a temporary change to the POD signature requirements. This change comes into effect from Saturday 14th March 2020 until further notice. Drivers will;
