Straitline™ COVID-19 Response: Level 1

Please see below the FAQs below about our COVID-19 response at the current alert level. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for our full COVID-19 Response Plan for all levels.

What restrictions do you have?

We have asked our staff to avoid physical contact with customers, suppliers and other staff (i.e. no handshakes, hongis etc.). We’re also requiring suppliers to have an appointment before they visit us. We’ve asked our staff to wash their hands regularly, and we’ll comply with all Ministry of Health requirements around self-isolation. Our QR codes will continue to be displayed for customers who wish to record their visit.

At all levels, please do not come to Straitline™ if:

  • You are feeling unwell
  • You are showing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (a high temperature of at least 38 degrees, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath)
  • You have tested positive to COVID-19
  • You have returned from overseas within the last two weeks
  • You have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case within the last two weeks

How do I get my truck curtains repaired?

Just come in, or use our call out service – we are committed to servicing our transport customers, regardless of the alert level. Our repair services will operate as normal at level 1. For call outs, we’ll comply with any restrictions you may have on your site. Remember that our staff have been asked to avoid physical contact with members of the public and each other where possible.

What payment options do you accept?

At level 1, we’re accepting all payment options (including internet banking, cheque, cash, or EFTPOS/credit card). Sorry, we don’t have Paywave. Note a 3% surcharge will apply if you pay by credit card over the phone (there is no surcharge if you pay via credit card in our showroom).
