  • To return Warranty parts and parts no longer required on your van, on a regular basis or as required by the Parts Department
  • Keep your vehicle and yourself clean and tidy, wearing the uniform and safety equipment (PPE) provided always when on company business
  • To support the Company through your conduct, appearance and communication with the customer.  In particular do not criticise the Company, products or your colleagues.
