Central Books Moving - Information for our Retailers, Resellers and Wholesalers

Update 03/06/16



Central Books is moving to 50 Freshwater Road, Chadwell Heath, London, RM8 1RX. From Monday 15th August we will be operational from this new site.

We are very pleased to say that we have bought a warehouse in Chadwell Heath and over the summer we will be moving stock into the new site. This new site is all under one roof unlike our current 5 buildings and we believe will considerably enhance our ability to provide a great service.

Our office and most of our warehouse staff will relocate on Friday 12th August. We will be operational in Freshwater Road from Monday 15th August. We will process orders on Friday 12th but only in the morning. From the 15th August for all activity except bulk storage we will be based at Freshwater Road. We will no longer have any stock in Wallis Road from September 2016. Whilst there is a short period that we would rather not receive new deliveries or returns we expect to only be out of action for the processing and despatching of orders on Friday afternoon 12th August.

Should you ever be coming to visit us at Freshwater Road and travelling by public transport you will find that we are a short walk from Chadwell Heath Station. Chadwell Heath Station is currently on the TFL Rail line but will be part of the first phase of Cross Rail 1 (Elizabeth Line) in May 2017. By 2019 you will be able to travel direct from Chadwell Heath to Central London (Bond Street 31 minutes) , Reading (84 minutes) and Heathrow (49 minutes). See for more details.

We will be keeping our current telephone numbers so you can carry on using the contact numbers you have, see contact-at-central-books.html
