Click and collect

You can choose to either have your item brought to your boot with a drive-thru option or collect outside the store while following social distancing guidelines.

To use the drive-thru option you will need to click on a link in your order confirmation email once you arrive in a designated parking bay.

This will tell staff you have arrived and the item will be brought to your boot.

Alternatively, the walk-up options lets you get your item from a collection point outside the store.

Currys PC World is also offering tech advice online with video calls through its website.

You can do this wherever you see the ShopLive icon.

There is no charge for standard delivery on small items.

This means you should get your order in three to five working days.

Deliveries are between 8am and 5pm and this applies to most items excluding larger goods such as washing machines and TVs over 40".

Standard delivery on larger items is free on weekdays and Sundays or £5 on Saturdays.

You can choose a three-hour time slot on weekdays and Sundays for £20 or on Saturdays for £25.

Next day delivery on larger items costs £20 between 7am and 8pm or £40 if you want to choose a time slot.

Large items can still be delivered to a room of your choice or left at your front door.

Staff are wearing face coverings and sanitising before and after every delivery.

There are also regular temperature checks.
