Please: stay alert to further updates as the situation evolves; stay COVIDSafe by following our delivery procedures

29 Oct 2020

COVIDSafe Deliveries

In light of Victoria's easing of restrictions, ANC is updating and aligning our procedures for COVIDSafe Deliveries, as at 29 Oct 2020. These apply to ALL States and Territories, with the exception of mandatory wearing of masks in Victoria, while other States/Territories masks are highly recommended.
The fundamentals:
- complex deliveries including assembly and installation recommence in VIC
- thank you cards recommence, must be contactless, must only be left with the goods, not handed over
It is critical we remain vigilant to these COVIDSafe delivery procedures, and do not become complacent.

1 Oct 2020

Safety Alert #12

ANC continues to deliver exceptional results during COVID-19 thanks to everyone's care and commitment. As some States are having school holidays and long weekends, and some of our team enjoy time off before the peak season, we ask everyone to continue your vigilance to COVIDSafe behaviours and procedures.
