The Sherwoods Delivery Process
All deliveries will be carried out by a fully trainer delivery driver, and they will always wear gloves and a mask at all times.
We will need to see identification when we arrive at your house and will do this while maintaining a 2-metre gap.
The keys will de sanitised and placed in a plastic bag on the floor 2 metres in front of the customer.
Paperless transactions are preferred where possible and all the documentation will have been sent digitally before the handover but if not suitable, a plastic wallet will be used, and the customer will keep the pen.
Your vehicle will be delivered with protective equipment in place, which will then be removed and the steering wheel and control panel will be disinfected in front of the customer.
A very basic explanation of the vehicle will be given at a safe 2-metre distance or we can send you a video of this prior to the handover.
You will then inspect the vehicle whilst maintaining a two meter gap with the delivery driver and confirm you are happy and sign the email we send to confirm you are happy.
We instruct customers to not use their new vehicle for three hours after delivery.
If you have a part exchange…
When we have arranged the handover date and time, please do not use your vehicle for three hours before your appointment.
The Delivery driver will inspect your part-exchange vehicle when they arrive to make sure it matches your description from when we gave you the valuation.
Please ensure all documentation is in the car i.e V5 / service history.
We will disinfect the steering wheel and controls and will always be wearing protective mask and gloves.
The part exchange will be driven back or transported back to our dealership.
