Due to the current lockdown advice and reduced number of staff, the Dash Drive office will temporarily close on Saturday mornings for vehicle collections.
The Dash Drive office will remain open from Monday to Friday 08:30 to 17:00 for all vehicle enquiries, bookings and collections.
Our customers can still book weekend hires online and collect vehicles on the Friday from 13:00 onwards. We offer our weekend hire customers an out of hours return service, by using our key drop off service.
Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we have put robust cleaning and sanitising procedures in place to ensure all rental vehicles are presented to our customers to the highest standard.
We will always endeavour to keep customer inconvenience to a minimum, but you may experience some delays or amendments to online booking and collection times.
We are also operating with a maximum capacity of 3 customers in the Dash Drive office at any time so we please ask that you try and arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. We do ask that facial coverings are worn throughout the premises to comply with Government guidelines.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you.
Our sister company Dash Express were proud to be appointed as official logistics contractor for the PCC election on 5th May and the European Referendum on 23rd June.
For both events, they collected polling station materials from the Cornwall Council stores (using Dash Drive vans of course!) and delivered to each of the 419 polling stations on the run-up. This in itself required careful scheduling; many polling stations are regularly-used community halls.
On the actual election and referendum nights, over 40 Dash staff, friends and family were involved in some way. We collected ballot boxes from the 17 ‘hubs’ and delivered them to either Wadebridge or Redruth counting centre. One small hiccup arose on Referendum night (mercifully not our fault!) where some confusion at Torpoint polling station led to our driver passing an unnerving hour and a half waiting for the final box to arrive at its designated hub in Saltash.
Afterwards, all the equipment was collected from polling stations and returned to the stores. Each project took around a fortnight of logistic activity and extensive organisation beforehand.
We are honoured to have played a unique part in the UK’s democratic process. The flawless execution of both logistics projects was due to excellent planning and co-ordination – a huge well done to everyone involved!
As you have selected a Weekend return there are a few things we would like to make you aware of:
The keys will need to be posted into our 'key drop' facility at the front of our main building
You will still be responsible for the vehicle until regular weekday opening hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 16:30pm
