Here at AllCachedUp UK WE are temporarily limiting ordering stock from outside the UK (if any at all) and some of the below is ‘most likely’ over the top but we want you to be confident we are doing our bit to prevent the spread. Some items may go out of stock or prices may rise due to having to source from a supplier within the UK. We will not raise prices on anything unless we have to pay more to obtain, what we concider to be ‘safer’ stock from trusted sources.
We order in bulk from abroad and when we order we order many months of stock, We can confirm that nothing has come in from China or Italy since the outbreak.
If anything does come in from abroad in the foreseeable future we are operating a 72 hour quarantine (we believe the maximum time a virus can survive on non human surfaces) of packages and stored ‘outside’ of our office/building at a safe temperature.
ANYONE that signs for goods or comes in contact with delivery persons OR packaging cleans their hands with +70% Alcohol immediately after touching anything such as touch screens or boxes.
We solely use Royal Mail for our deliveries and ALL orders are delivered to them in sealed bags, opened and mainly sorted by machine. We believe they are handled by a minimal amount of humans. We suggest cleaning your hands when receiving items from any courier or post after removing and binning the outer packaging.
We would rather be safe than sorry. Please find below some more info on the virus from the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION
Symptoms of coronavirus
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a cough
- a high temperature
- shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider
Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
Protection measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading
- Follow the guidance outlined above.
- Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover. Why? Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
- If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travelers. Why? Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also help to prevent possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
