Hiring a vehicle in St Helens during lockdown

Lockdown 2.0 – how could a hire vehicle help?

So, we’re here again. Despite everyone’s efforts, coronavirus cases in our region have begun to rise once more. The North West is deemed ‘very high risk’ and, as such, has now been placed in a tier 3 lockdown – meaning that pubs and bars are forced to shut and social mixing is off-limits.

Fortunately, here at PSD Vehicle Rental, we’re still open for business. We’re deemed as an essential service provider. And our goal is to keep our community on-the-go as much as possible – whilst also keeping people safe. Here we take a look at just a few ways in which our vehicle rental services could be of help during the long and difficult months ahead.

  1. 1. Essential travel

Essential travel for work or school is still permitted under the new rules. But, understandably, lots of people are wary about the safety of public transport. And for those who don’t own their own car, travelling to the workplace and getting the kids safely to their classroom has become a daily worry.

Hiring a car could be a solution. In line with government guidance, we’ve introduced a range of new cleaning measures and now offer a ‘kerbside collection service’ for all of our customers. By renting one of our cars, you can rest in the knowledge that your daily commute is safe and help to protect others. And you may even find that it’s cheaper than your usual bus or train fare.

  1. 2. Delivery vans

For a second time this year, pubs and bars are having to shut their doors. Restaurants have also been restricted to single household bookings and custom will inevitably drop in the next few weeks.

So, why not start a takeaway and delivery service? Hire a van in St Helens, advertise on social media and deliver your food and drink across the local area. If you opt for a long-term rental, we can even customise the vehicle in line with your business’ branding. It may be something you’ve never done before, but it could help you to make a profit and stay afloat during these difficult times.

  1. 3. Flexibility

The rules are continuously changing and it’s impossible to predict what’s going to happen next. Which is why, for many businesses, our FLEX2GO vehicle rental service is a fantastic option.

This allows you to hire vehicles on a rolling monthly basis, with the option to swap vehicles depending on your current needs. If your business is doing well, you can expand your fleet. But if restrictions are tightened further and your requirements change, you can reduce it just as easily.

You can make as many alterations as you like, without penalty. This is a risk-free option, that allows you to react to the changing world around us and ensure you’re never out of pocket.
