Jahama Group provides storage for idle vehicles during Coronavirus lockdown

Jahama Group is providing secure parking solutions for fleet vehicles and plant equipment that is not being used during the Coronavirus lockdown.

It has more than 100,000 acres of land around industrial sites available.

The group is making a large part of its real estate portfolio, including land around Liberty Industries and SIMEC industrial sites, available for storage required as a result of business activity pausing during the pandemic.

Car rental providers, coach operators, distribution and logistics providers, construction and engineering are among those facing a challenge in storing large quantities of vehicles.

Storage will be available in a total of 12 locations in England, Scotland and Wales. The company says pricing will be competitive, with short-term and medium-term flexible packages provided.

Dilip Awtani, chief executive of Jahama, said: “The pandemic has led to unprecedented demand for vehicle storage – and we want to do our bit to help.

“We all hope that COVID-19 will be beaten quickly and that cars, buses and industrial vehicles will soon be back on the road but in the meantime, there is a need for somewhere safe and secure to store them.

“Jahama owns land around industrial locations across the United Kingdom. That’s a resource that can be put to good use for the duration of this crisis.”
