Gas Fills at UE
Friday to Sunday 10-16 only
Due to Covid-19 we have had to change the nature of our cylinder fill services including availability dates, times and procedures.
Limited floor space and social distancing requirements while avoiding congestion in front and inside the premises has led us to introduce different procedures to be Covid-safe.
There are new procedures in place for in-store sales, servicing & hire (Indoor Services) and for those only needing cylinder fills (Outdoor Services).
For detailed information and opening time please check our COVID 19 Update page.
OUTDOOR SERVICES | Cylinder Fills
- Wait outside
- Respect social distancing
- Avoid obstructing shop entrance
Once you arrive and park up please:
-Keep your cylinders in the car to avoid congestion
-If they are to be filled, remove all equipment from cylinders
-Ring bell and wait outside for attendance
-Pay by card and receive fill ticket
-Place ticket on tank(s)
-Bring cylinders to drop-off point as guided
-Wait outside or in car during fill
(Unless any indoor services are required)
-Pick up fills at collection point when completed
-(If Gas Fill: Analyse, sign and date checkout form)
The separation of essential and ancillary services will allow a safe number of shoppers to be in the store at the same time while those only wanting air or gas fills can be served outside in an equally safe (and distanced) manner. If a store customer requires a fill, this will be organised by a member of staff during his/her shopping experience. Check our COVID 19 Update page for more information.
