Government guidelines for vehicle rental industry

April 6, 2020

Department for Transport - Wikipedia 

Vehicle collection and distribution IS permitted during the COVID-19 lockdown 

The collection and distribution of vehicles can continue during the current lockdown, if it is done in accordance with current Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautions.  

The Department for Transport has now produced two separate letters confirming that vehicles can be collected and distributed, whether it is done in providing vehicle rental services or as part of the wider logistics supply chain

To support this activity, the BVRLA has collaborated with the SMMT and FLA in producing guidance and best practice advice on how these movements should happen. It includes: 

  • Social distancing and staff protection measures 
  • Insurance 
  • Communication with customers 
  • Risk assessments 

The guidance will be updated as the situation changes and can be found on the BVRLA COVID-19 advice pages
