covid-19small

Days Fleet are taking a proactive response to the COVID-19, enabling us to manage the services we provide to our clients and minimise any disruption.

As the threat of Coronavirus spreading is a rapidly changing situation, we are keeping up to date with government and medical advice available. We are monitoring the current situation in the UK, along with the risk level, and this will help us plan for all eventualities.

Business Continuity plans are in place and active with the majority of our office staff already working remotely from home and are operating skeleton staff at our head office, while conforming to social distancing guidelines.

Ensuring the welfare of our staff is extremely important to us and our already-established flexible working policies mean there should be no disruption to operations.

As soon as we are aware that we can resume normal working practices, we will, of course, advise you of any corresponding return to office plans and phasing of services being fully reinstated.

Vehicle Servicing, Maintenance and Repair

Please be aware that when calling our DriverLine service (0345 296 4423), you may experience higher than usual call waiting times and may also experience instances where critical work is being prioritised.

Should you wish to make a new service, maintenance or MOT booking please visit our online booking page.

We are in ongoing communication with our supply chain about their own mitigation procedures and have open communication channels should developments occur that may impact our service delivery.  In the case that suppliers are affected, we will endeavour to minimise disruption and look to offer alternative supply through our extensive network.

MOT’s due from 30 March 2020

The Government have announced that your car, van or motorcycle’s MOT expiry date will be extended by 6 months if it’s due on or after 30 March 2020 – but you must keep your vehicle safe to drive.

With this in mind it is worthwhile ensuring all your tyres are above the 1.6mm legal minimum and that all your lights, front & rear, are working correctly.

Your MOT expiry date will usually be updated on the day your MOT is due to expire. However, it might be done up to a few days before.

You can check your MOT history to see when your MOT expiry date has been extended. Keep checking back if your new expiry date is not showing yet.

Tyres

Our tyre partner, ATS Euromaster remains operational during the Coronavirus pandemic to support emergency service vehicles and to help keep essential fleets on the move.

Whilst they have taken the decision to close a number of service centres, they still have a large number of centres open across our network and their mobile services continue as usual. At this time they may have to prioritise emergency fleet work over others.

Please visit our tyre assistance page for more information on how to arrange your tyre replacement or check.

Vehicle Deliveries and Collections

All new vehicle deliveries will be postponed until further notice. We will endeavour to deliver vehicles for critical services and workers however unfortunately we cannot guarantee this.

All vehicles which are due to be collected over the next month will now be placed on a one-month contract extension.   We will re-arrange collections as soon as it is safe to do so.

Flexi Hire

Our short-term rental team are still on hand to take your vehicle booking requests.

Our supply network, whilst certain to experience some interruptions and closures, is still able to react to support vital services – if you require support for your necessary mobility at this time please know we are here to help.

Please contact [email protected] or alternatively, existing clients can utilise our online booking facility.
