How is the economy going to bounce back from coronavirus? Will it be V-shaped? Or possibly U-shaped? Predictions are difficult at this stage as we slowly feel our way back into what is ‘new normal’ and what is ‘new business’.
What is clear, however, is a hesitancy about long-term agreements as businesses right-size and repurpose post lockdown.
The British Chambers of Commerce in its weekly tracker report, reports that while many businesses were preparing to go back under new social distancing guidelines, 45% said they could only partially restart.
Such uncertainty is facing many businesses, but staying agile and adapting to circumstances is essential to long term survival.
Stay flexible with vehicles when you need them
One way to help your company regain business traction is to use short term rental facilities. These allow you to provide vehicles as and when you require them and for how long. With the future economy still uncertain, short term car and van rental provides businesses mobility without lengthy commitments that are possibly unwelcome at this stage of business recovery.
Flexible rental is ideal for bringing staff back from furlough, or for those employees with changed responsibilities and job requirements as your business reorientates to new economic conditions. It can also help you explore new business opportunities.
In particular, if an employee is due to change their car in the immediate future, you can utilise short term rental as a replacement vehicle without having the commitment of a long term agreement while you assess the economic outlook.
And in the future it is worth considering this form of flexible rental as part of a suite of potential mobility solutions to offer staff mobility when required.
