Business Update – November 2020

Posted Posted on Categories Business News

Welcome to our Business Update for November:

With different parts of the UK in varying levels of lockdown and England also having entered a national lockdown for 4 weeks, we wish to reassure all of our clients that it continues to be very much ‘business as usual’ at Days Fleet.

Head office has minimal staff in attendance with the majority of staff fully operational at home.  We will maintain the same high level of service for all of our clients but should you experience any issues please let us know at [email protected]

Vehicle Deliveries & Collections

These will continue to happen as normal unless we are specifically advised otherwise by our client, the supplying dealership or a delivery/collection agent.  If your vehicle is affected we will be in touch immediately.

MOT’s

If you have a vehicle that requires an MOT during lockdown then this should still take place – there is no MOT extension like there was earlier in the year.  If you have a booking that cannot be deferred due to the MOT due date then please check with the individual garage to ensure they are still operational during the lockdown.

If your MOT cannot take place for any reason then it is essential that you continue to carry out regular checks on the vehicle including tyres, lights, indicators etc. until the MOT can be completed and the vehicle deemed roadworthy.  If the MOT is overdue then please ensure the vehicle is not driven on the public highway as it will not be covered by your insurance policy.

Vehicle Servicing

If you have a service booked, please check with the individual garage that the booking can still go ahead.

For any MOT or servicing queries, please contact our DriverLine on 0345 296 4423.

Flexi Hire

Should you be aware of any upcoming requirements to hire commercial vehicles we strongly recommend that bookings are made now to secure availability.

As you will appreciate, many of our hire suppliers receive block bookings from parcel delivery companies and couriers, leading to lower general availability in all van groups. This year we anticipate further issues surrounding availability as a result of the restrictions on vehicle movements due to the pandemic.

For any Flexi Hire queries, please contact our Flexi Hire team on 0345 184 9337 / [email protected]

Brexit Update

With growing uncertainty surrounding a hard Brexit and any levies that may be applied, we will aim to keep you informed of any changes as we learn of them.

Once again our staff and suppliers have been essential to keeping us fully operational during these times and we are grateful for their continued commitment to serving Days Fleet and our valued clients.
