Managing Transport & Vehicle Maintenance During COVID-19


I am receiving deliveries; how can I do this safely?

It is important to ensure that social distancing measures are implemented on farm when accepting any deliveries.

NFUS, in collaboration with Road Haulage Association, is prompting the Drop n’ Go approach to ensure farmers, crofters and delivery drivers can stay safe. You can find out more here 

Tips to consider may include communicating with your delivery service to work out a plan to accept the delivery safely, this may include:

  • Receiving an emailed delivery note or invoice,
  • Agreeing a designated drop-off zone in advance to prevent you from mixing with the driver, 
  • Placing signage where is visible for any delivery driver stating you are practicing social distancing measures, or
  • Placing a bucket of soapy water at the drop-off point if the drivers want to wash their hands.

Guidance from NHS Inform about social distancing is available here


How has Coronavirus Impacted MOTs?

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has announced UK wide changes where vehicles require MOTs. Please see Legal & Technical Business Guides for more information.
