Covid 19 update


Covid-19 Update: 23/12/20 


On Sunday 20/12/20 Berkshire entered the Government's new tier 4.  We are fortunate to be one of the businesses allowed to remain open under tier 4 and we will continue to operate and serve all private and business customers requiring vehicles for essential use in accordance to the government's tier 4 allowances and exemptions.  


Please note that we expect customers to be familiar with the government's new restrictions and to have checked that their purpose of hire is allowed or exempt under the new rules.  Liability for any fines obtained for breach of the restrictions will lie solely with the hirer.
