Coronavirus statement and FAQ

Updated: 14th Sept 2020

Service during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Canford remains open for business. We continue to monitor the situation and will take all necessary steps in line with government and World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines to ensure the wellbeing of our staff. Any changes to our usual level of service will be detailed here.


Please continue to order as usual. Our phone lines remain open, however we'd ask that customers communicate with us by email or place your order on the website. Contact details for all departments can be found on the contact us page.


Next day and timed next day delivery services are still available in the UK. However, our carriers have suspended their service level guarantees and advised us that they will be provided on a "best efforts" basis. At the present time we have not seen any disruption to service levels but please be aware of this when choosing a delivery service.

The cut-off time for placing an order to ensure UK next day delivery has been changed from 17:00 to 16:00. While we will endeavour to process orders placed after this time as quickly as possible we can't guarantee that they will be shipped the same day. This change is reflected in the cut-off time for next day delivery shown on the website.

Delivery address availability

When placing an order please ensure that there will be someone available at the delivery premises to receive the order. We appreciate that this is a rapidly changing situation with regards to staff availability and local restrictions in different parts of the world so it may not always be possible. In the event that you become aware that a delivery cannot be received please contact us as soon as possible.

Lead times

Where products aren't available from stock, the lead times we quote are based on historical averages that don't take account of local restrictions in place on our suppliers and disruption to global shipping operations. We continue to work with our suppliers to ensure continuity of supply and will advise you of any changes to expected delivery dates for your orders.

    BAFTA nominated Composer Richard Jacques upgrades studio and reflects on twenty years as Canford client

    Multi-award winning, BAFTA and Ivor Novello nominated composer of film, television and video games Richard Jacques; "I have been dealing with Canford for around 20 years now, and always find the service excellent. For me it’s important to have updates and good communication... I could not fault the service. Even during lockdown, when most suppliers were struggling with stock arriving from manufacturers (indeed, understandably so) I was able to place orders and get the deliveries as if there was no pandemic".
