Vehicle availability and lead times continue to be a challenge for our industry. However, with older orders starting to be fulfilled, and manufacturers providing more clarity on build dates, there does seem to be light at the end of the tunnel.
Looking back at the last 12 to 18 months, we are definitely seeing improvement as we are now looking at an average to 6 – 9 months lead time, model dependent.
If drivers do not require a specific make and model or vehicle customisation, then there are various stock vehicles available, be sure to ask your account manager if you are interested in these.
For those looking to order a new vehicle and unsure what to choose, we have lead time data available on our website New Vehicle Lead Times – JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions and we have compiled a list of vehicles we know are currently available on a shorter lead time which you can access on our Lead Times Highlights document.
As always, we will do everything we can to support your drivers’ needs and suggest suitable alternatives where required.
If you or your drivers would like to discuss ordering a new vehicle and the current availability, please contact your account manager who will be happy to assist.
