When you are not doing this the remainder of your time will be spent split between valeting the various vehicles in between their hire-outs (approximately 40 % of your time will be in the yard getting the vehicles looking pristine) and smaller jobs around the yard such as keeping the area clean, safe and tidy, changing vehicle light bulbs, gritting the yard in bad weather and any other ad.hoc duties that may arise.
