I have not seen any notifications about how long the level 4 lockdown will be but am hoping mail order can circumvent the ordering of non essential electronic goods. Our tv is dieing rapidly as it has all vertical coloured stripes across the screen and before lockdown the tv repair man said it was not cost effective to repair. Unfortunately i did not buy then.

Have tried my luck with Takelot and ordered a new tv today but i did see on their web site that they specified certain categories they will deliver and tvs do not seem to be on there. Any one know if non essentials are allowed by mail order? Could get a jig saw at hardware store today but regard a tv more essential with lock down.

Paul, I have family that also believe in pick-a-lot or is it expect-a-lot :  just joking.   One is supposed to be able to get "communication" items which should include mobile phones and items like TV sets.  Check with Incredible Connection and Game. 

Hope you get sorted.

Regards

Just for info - my explora had a corrupt drive failure and I had to replace it on Saturday.   Fortunately my son-in-law had two exploras that he no longer used to replace my primary and holiday home decoders. 

Owe him a good wine once we can buy the stuff.

Theo i have placed the order with Takealot already and the order went through, so i am in for the wait one way or the other what ever the regulations. Did read about communication equipment like laptops and office equipment being regarded as essential. Hopefully they regard a smart tv is communication equipment.

Geert they have main catogories they have advertised like Beauty essentials, diy and outdoor, office and stationary, toys and games, small kitchen appliances but there is no logic to many of the items being essential. (Suppose it depends on a persons view point) , so if a tv is not an essential catagory mabe im lucky and it slips through the cracks.

My son in law (we share a subdivided house) looked up Takealots tracking system and it says the tv is being delivered this week so it looks like i may be lucky after all.

Good news. Our tv was delivered yesterday, so it is possible to get non essential items using mail order.
