Those that aren't doing so are adjusting to give their delivery teams and customers more choice. Exemptions notwithstanding, you will be given the opportunity to express your desires for the arrival of your new lease car. In these cases, and depending on the delivery team's own precautionary requirements, there may be wider opportunity for an in-person vehicle demonstration if requested.
Regardless of this, and although COVID-19 restrictions will no longer be law and are therefore not enforceable, we will continue to ask all parties to remain vigilant, careful and considerate in order to keep everyone safe.
What to expect from your lease delivery:
1. Before delivery
Please inform our administration team of any special requirements around the delivery of your lease vehicle, including your preferred COVID-19 safety precautions.
Where possible, we will confirm the exact procedure of the dealership supplying your vehicle and will advise them of any special requests.
We still ask that you inform your administration agent if you, or someone you live with, contracts COVID-19, shows symptoms or has a positive test result within 10 days of the delivery date.
2. The pre-delivery inspection (PDI) and valet
A PDI will take place before every delivery. The technician will wear gloves and take special precautions during the inspection. It will be as thorough as ever, to make sure your vehicle is in prime condition.
The valet includes a deep clean of the vehicle inside and out, and it'll be completely sanitised. Some dealerships may also place covers over the high-touch points, including the steering wheel.
