COVID-19: What we are doing to keep you safe

We have now implemented a range of procedures to help keep our staff and you the customer as safe as we can in the climate of Coronavirus. As suppliers of vehicles for the NHS we have an extra duty of care to ensure the highest standards in health and safety so whilst some of our procedures may seem over the top, in our opinion, it is imperative we take these measures for everyone who hires from us. If you have any concerns or suggestions please contact us.
