WHILE the coronavirus pandemic is causing deep pain for many small businesses and SMEs, not all sectors are equally affected.
Neath van broker, Low Cost Vans, says it has seen a surge in demand from cleaning firms, couriers and pharmacies as they attempt to meet increased customer demand.
Rod Lloyd, the managing director, said:
“These are unprecedented times for the UK economy but the fact is that many businesses have to keep moving. From certain sectors, the number of enquiries we are getting has doubled or even tripled. Cleaning companies, couriers and pharmacies are inundated with additional work.
“Speaking to these customers, they are telling us that their main objective is helping the UK through some tough months ahead. But they are often struggling to get supplies and personnel in the right place at the right time. Hopefully we’ve mad a positive difference for many of them by providing extra vehicles quickly.
“We have also introduced a number of measures to help businesses of any description through these challenging times. These include additional discounts on certain vehicles and waiving admin fees associated with finance deals. We have plenty of stock available across all vehicle types and will help customers in any way we can.”
