How will my lease vehicle be delivered in line with COVID-19 rules?
UK dealerships are permitted to remain open to provide delivery services during England's latest lockdown. 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 reopened their doors from 1st June and are permitted to remain open during November's lockdown to provide delivery services.
We are therefore delighted to confirm that the delivery of vehicles from both existing and incoming lease orders can continue as normal under appropriate COVID-19 guidelines.
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.
Since reopening their doors at the beginning of June, deliveries from our dealerships have recommenced 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. In addition, all vehicle deliveries must abide by the BVRLA's new COVID-19 guidance for delivery services.
