What to expect from your COVID-19 compliant lease vehicle delivery
As UK dealerships reopen their doors, vehicle deliveries can begin once again under new social distancing restrictions. Here's what to expect when your new lease vehicle is delivered.
Carparison work with a large number of dealerships based throughout the UK. This is in order to provide a diverse range of lease cars and in order to hand pick only the most competitive lease deals based on vehicle list price. Many of these dealerships have reopened their doors from 1st June as a result of the alleviation of lock down restrictions in place to combat the coronavirus pandemic. We are therefore delighted to confirm that the delivery of vehicles from both existing and incoming lease orders can recommence.
What is the role of a dealership when you lease a vehicle?
As a broker, we act as an intermediary between our customers, the supplying dealerships and our partnering funders. The stock we sell and the total vehicle price is set by the dealerships. It is also their teams who will be responsible for delivering the vehicle to our customers.
Most dealerships have been closed completely since the end of March and, as a result, a large proportion of vehicle deliveries were put on hold. With dealership openings and vehicle movements now being deemed safe, deliveries can begin again with a few vital changes in place.
What you can expect when your lease car is delivered
Each of our dealerships will have their own vehicle preparation and delivery routine. The intricacies of which will be dependent on their own internal infrastructures. However, each will follow these steps in order to abide by social distancing measures and to maximise sanitation without compromising the handover experience received by the vehicle recipient.
