Coronavirus Guidelines

Updated 20/04/2020

In these uncertain and challenging times, we are here for you.
 
We understand the need to work together and ensure that keyworkers, businesses and communities in and around London are still served in the safest way possible.

We would like to reassure you that Parker Cars will continue to provide you with a safe, reliable and efficient passenger and courier service throughout this unusual period.

We are very thankful for the support received by our drivers and staff who keep going to make certain that we are still able to provide you with any necessary travel and deliveries.

Along with following government advice, we have also advised all drivers to follow the below measures to help fight any spread of the virus:
 
  • As usual, drivers are to open and close doors for passengers both at pick up and drop off.
 
  • Drivers to open the boot for passenger’s belongings, shopping and luggage as usual - but Drivers may want to ask passengers if they would prefer to load their belongings themselves unless transporting elderly, disabled, infirm or very young passengers. If Drivers do handle passengers belongings, clean their hands immediately afterwards.

  • Drivers to keep antibacterial spray (or similar) and tissue/kitchen roll in their vehicle at all times to clean communal areas such as seat belts, window buttons etc.

  • Drivers to use the gloves wherever possible when handling customer’s luggage.
 
  • Drivers are to clean coins and notes paid by customers.

  • Drivers are to clean communal areas at the start of every shift and in between bookings where possible.

  • Drivers are to wash their hands at every opportunity.
 
  • Drivers are to clean their mobile phones and PDAs regularly.
In an attempt to follow Government guidelines as much as possible with regards to social distancing, we have also decided to apply the following restrictions to the capacity of our vehicles:

  • Up to 2 people to travel in a saloon vehicle.
  • Up to 4 people to travel in a 5, 6, 7 or 8 set vehicle. 
  • Up to 10 people to travel in a 16 seat minibus.
 
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any special requirements or would like some further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Stay safe, stay well and please do let us know if we can help in any way.
 
Best Wishes,
Parker Cars
