Parking crisis for unused lease and rental vehicles

Rockingham Group has seen a surge in enquiries for short-term, secure storage from local and national leasing and hire companies as 1,000s of vehicles stand idle due to the Coronavirus lockdown.

Many of these vehicles need secure parking yet availability remains in short supply.

Stuart Wright, principal of Rockingham Group said: “We understand that car rental companies such as Avis, Enterprise and Sixt need space to park tens of thousands of cars and vans not being used during the lockdown.

“With the growing shortage of secure vehicle parking in the UK, our facility offers a great solution for manufacturers, fleet operators and leasing companies. We have 200 acres of open storage for more than 40,000 private and commercial vehicles, with an overspill development capable of taking another 5,000 vehicles.

“During Covid-19, we are offering flexible terms for our vehicle storage, which is surrounded by protective fencing, with entry and exit only possible through manned access points. In turn, 24hr security patrols are complemented by a state-of-the-art CCTV system.

The Rockingham Automotive Logistics Hub is located in Corby, central England, with road links to the nearby A1, M1, M6 and A14. 

Vehicle storage complements its large scale PDI and de-fleet vehicle processing facilities.

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