Have a burning home improvement question? You can now get it answered on demand!
Since Covid restrictions had people going out less and staying home more, there has been a huge increase in the number of people taking up DIY projects. Whether it is just to pass the time at home or that little quality of life improvement suddenly seems more pressing, Australians are picking up their hammers.
Hardware super-store, Bunnings, conducted research and learned that one in three of their customers were choosing to shop online, rather than in-store.
People are buying supplies for their home renovations, without the expert input that their staff provides. However, DIY-ers are finding that they don't know what to do when their items arrive.
But don't stress - because Bunnings is here to help! They have launched a DIY helpline, so whatever reno problems you are facing - big or small - you can get answers. Just call 1800 560 771.
In addition to hardware-based projects, the helpful voices on the other end of the line can also offer assistance with your plant collection.
Steve Hoffman, Bunnings national customer advocacy manager, said that Australias are shopping online more than ever.
“For Aussies who are not as computer savvy, being stuck at home during this isolation period can be difficult, so that’s why we launched a new telephone DIY Hotline during May this year,” he said.
“Our DIY Hotline is managed by Bunnings team members that customers can call for expert advice on a range of topics, including horticulture, plus order the materials they need from Bunnings to undertake a DIY project and have them delivered to their front door.”
The hotline is a great resource that works hand-in-hand with Bunnings' home delivery service, as well as their Drive and Collect option.
