“Throughout 2020, motorcycle dealers showed spectacular resilience, keeping the bulk of their businesses open for servicing, ‘click & collect’ and deliveries to customers; we know our sector is understandably weary after many months of setbacks but with the vaccines now being rolled out across the UK, there is daylight at the end of the tunnel”, said Paddy O’Connell, Head of the National Motorcycle Dealer Association (NMDA).
With the 2021 lockdown passed into law on 6 January, the NMDA has been sharing updates with members to remind them of the restrictions they face around their everyday business.
The NMDA helpline is just one of the many member benefits. Giving access to legal, employment and general business advice, there are also a number of papers offering guidance, including information on what business support and grants may be available during the current lockdown.
Paddy O’Connell, Head of the NMDA, added: “The regulations may be confusing and you may be missing out on some of the resources currently available to support businesses, both from NMDA as well as from the Government.
“If you are unsure of what is and is not permissible in this latest lockdown and what support measures are currently available to you, please contact us by calling our member helpline on 01788 538303 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org”.
