Range Rover Evoque: Vehicle Transportation Aids and Vehicle Storage

New Vehicle Storage

INTRODUCTION

Standards

Vehicles may require storage for varying periods of time before the customer takes delivery. It is essential that a new Land Rover vehicle is stored correctly, in order to ensure total customer satisfaction after the car is removed from storage and prepared for sale.

This document establishes the MINIMUM STANDARDS required of franchise holders and appointed vehicle storage companies by Land Rover for the storage of new vehicles, and may only be deviated from with the Company's agreement.

Any concerns should be discussed with your Franchise Regional Manager.

This information should be used in conjunction with the relevant Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) information.

AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY

Preventative Measures

Adequate preventative measures must be taken to ensure that each vehicle in stock is maintained in peak condition.

ARRIVAL

It is your responsibility to notify delivery companies immediately of any losses and/or transit damage identified on receipt of the vehicle.

Where applicable, Vehicle Condition Reports (VCR's) must be endorsed accordingly, otherwise it is unlikely that the transit insurance company will accept any claims for missing items or damage rectification.

STORAGE

Correct preparation of vehicles for storage is essential. The majority of new vehicles leaving Land Rover are provided with the appropriate protection for transit. It is your responsibility to ensure that a vehicle storage department, or specialist company, is sufficiently equipped to undertake the storage requirements endorsed in this publication. Whilst vehicles are in storage, any deterioration or damage sustained is the sole responsibility of the storage operator and must NOT be made the subject of a warranty claim.

DISPATCH

When removing vehicles from storage, you are responsible for procedures that ensure they are in a safe and roadworthy condition.

VEHICLE STORAGE

VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION UPON ARRIVAL

VEHICLE INSPECTION

The entire vehicle exterior must be inspected and, if necessary, washed thoroughly, including the underside and wheel arches, to remove all dirt and mud deposits.

Any defects found during inspection must be rectified before the vehicle is stored.

Ensure that bumper and body side protectors are correctly located.

There are two main methods of vehicle storage:

IDEALLY ALL VEHICLES SHOULD BE STORED IN A WELL VENTILATED AND TEMPERATURE-CONTROLLED BUILDING.

However, it is recognised that the majority of all vehicle storage is done in an open compound. Therefore, the following site requirements must be observed and should be authorised with your Regional Manager.

VEHICLE PARKING

Vehicles must be parked tidily with a minimum of 600 mm (2 feet) between bumpers, front and rear.

There must be a full doors width clearance between the driver's door and any adjacent vehicle or obstruction.

Vehicles must be parked at least 1.2 metres (4 feet) away from any interior wall or, for outside storage, at least 2 metres (6 feet) away from any perimeter fence.

Vehicles must be moved on a first-in-first-out basis, subject to specification.
