Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our thoughts are with all of those who are currently being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are following all directives from the Australian government and health experts in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus.

Our main priorities continue to be the health and wellbeing of our staff and valued customers.


Things are changing daily, if not hourly in the Australian environment, and as such PLE have had to make some changes to the way we operate to continue to try to operate "normally".

We are also facing a high volume of orders at the moment, as such our regular dispatch times may be disrupted and our support emails/calls may be a little delayed, we apologise for any inconveniences caused.

We are enforcing a maximum of 20 customers in store at a time, if you are visiting a PLE store please check in using the SafeWA App.

To help keep everyone safe, ALL staff/customers are required to wear a mask while in store (unless you have a lawful exemption).
If you have recently visited an exposure site please follow Government directions and don't visit PLE stores if you are required to self-isolate.
We are cleaning all high touch areas frequently and hand sanitiser is available at all stores.

Friday 23rd April 2021 UPDATE

Please do your best to stay home, stop the spread and let's smash out this lockdown so we can go back to normal quickly.

This means we can not facilitate click and collect/pick up orders. Current orders that have been invoiced and were ready for pick up will be placed on hold until we are able to reopen.

We will be sending out updates to those with pending orders to keep you updated.

Sunday 31st January 2021 UPDATE

Due to the recent locally acquired COVID19 case in Perth we wish to advise the following key points

- All stores are open for essential purchases as per our normal opening times.
- We strongly recommend ordering and paying online and using our in store click and collect barcode to minimise the amount of time you spend in store.
- It is anticipated that our phones and emails will be very busy, please be patient. We are doing our best to keep our phones online - only call if your enquiry is urgent.

- Our point of sale areas continue to have acrylic screens to help reduce the chance of covid19 spread.
- All staff have been provided with company supplied face masks. As per government requirements all customers are required to wear a fitted face mask while in store.
- All staff that can work from home are working from home. This means your phone call may be answered by someone not at the store you're calling.
- The number of customers allowed in each store has been reduced, if the store you're visiting is busy, you may be asked to queue outside until someone else leaves.
- High touch point areas of the stores are receiving increased cleaning.
- Our staff rostering has changed to ensure staff at each store only work at the one store.
- Whilst not required by Western Australian government guidelines, we have Safe WA QR code check in barcodes at all stores. Please check in to help stop the spread.
- We still don't have any additional RTX3080 to help you in lockdown

Thanks for your ongoing support throughout the last few months, we can't wait to serve you in person again!

COVID and PLE Computers

Delivery:

We are still shipping orders Australia-wide and we are doing everything in our power to dispatch orders as quickly as possible. We have changed our warehouse hours and are implementing changes to make sure we send out as many orders as we can. Unfortunately our courier partners are seeing lengthy delays across the network and have reduced tracking scans to prioritise sending as many orders as possible.

Tracking: Our courier partners have significantly reduced the amount of scans that are being completed during transit to avoid further delays. If we have dispatched your order and you have received tracking details from us, your parcel has been collected from us, but may not have been scanned into the courier's tracking system. We understand that this may be frustrating, but please understand that this is out of our control.

Click and collect is still available at all stores and we are enforcing strict social distancing measures in-store to ensure everyone's safety.

Australia Post: https://auspost.com.au/about-us/news-media/important-updates/coronavirus
StarTrack: https://startrack.com.au/alerts

How we're operating differently:

- If government regulations require you to wear a mask indoors away from your home you must wear a mask at PLE Computers.

- Ensuring our physical stores are being cleaned and disinfected regularly, including all demo equipment.

- Hand sanitiser will be available in all stores.

- Black tape line on the floor in stores to measure the recommended 1.5m of social distancing between staff and customers.

- Some operational staff are working from home where possible.

- No price matching from other stores.

- Due to Wild Currency Fluctuations, prices are changing often. Therefore quotes reduced to 48 hours validity (to ensure current market prices are being maintained across orders).

- Builds may be delayed from the standard 5-day turnaround due to a high volume of orders.
