When your lease vehicle is delivered, whether it is driven or transported, the driver will ensure each surface they have come into contact with such as steering wheel, keys, handles etc, are sanitised and safe for you to use. Some dealers may offer additional measures as standard. The dealership you lease your vehicle from will be able to provide you with more detailed information.

In line with government guidance the dealership will deliver your lease vehicle staying at least 2 metres away at all times. This is to safeguard all customers and colleagues.
