"Were very happy to take time to advise customers who are new to motorhoming and to find them the right van for their needs. "

'Of course, that’s strictly in line with the most recent Government guidelines and to the new Covid-19 Secure Standards,’ says Vantage Motorhomes MD, Michael Hardicker. Vantage has followed an extensive plan for reopening, including rearranging the factory to observe social distancing guidelines as well as maintaining efficiency. Individual work zones have been sectioned off to remind staff of the distancing guidelines and each zone comes equipped with reminder posters and sanitising stations. The offices and showrooms have also been adapted.
Not surprisingly, with all the talk of staycations in recent weeks, there has been a surge of interest in owning a motorhome. “We’re very happy to take time to advise customers who are new to motorhoming and to find them the right van for their needs. We build a lot of our motorhomes to order but if you’re keen to get started right away we do have some brand new models that can be on the road very quickly. We also have a selection of preloved motorhomes from a range of leading manufacturers,’ he added.
There are now designated areas for motorhome sales and handovers, which are by appointment only, with strict protocols in place regarding cleaning, sanitising and social distancing. Two-way radios will help assist with the handover process, although if customers want a video handover this can be requested and prepared in advance. Offsite handover deliveries are also available.
Michael adds, ‘Once an appointment is confirmed we provide guidance to customers as to where to go when they arrive and what to expect while they’re with us. I’m happy to say the new procedures are working very well.’
‘Many of us have been touched in some way by what is happening and we all talk about the new normal, rather than getting back to normal. Things will certainly be different for a while. We’d like to thank our customers for their continued support and for the many kind messages we’ve received in the past weeks,’ he added.
