Work in your home that has been put off for months or maybe even years, can finally get the attention it needs.

Screwfix will still be operating a home delivery service for customers.
The service may-be delayed and the range of goods will be limited in the coming weeks.

There will also be a 'click and collect' option available, but only for 'essential' goods.
