#1 Bailiff wearing t shirt with large Equita logo

Post by anti bailiff » 14 Feb 2017 18:12

I understood that bailiffs are not supposed to display insignia which identifies them as bailiffs, other than their personal identification. That is why they travel around in unmarked vehicles. I have just been watching a few YTouTube videos, however, and came across this. A few seconds into the vid, the bailiff can be seen wearing a T shirt with a large 'Equita' logo on the upper left side.

Is this breaching the guidelines within which bailiffs must operate?

No.


The vehicle are unmarked because they get vandalised. Can you imagine driving a white van with BAILIFFS emblazoned across it?

Thanks for the clarification Jason.

I can see what you mean about the vehicles. If I was stopped at a traffic light in my car and a van signwritten 'Bailiff' was pulled up next to me, I'd call the driver a few choice things... as would quite a lot of other people, I'd imagine. And that would be the least that would happen to the van and its occupants as they went about their dirty business.

Bailiff companies lease all their vans. Their ANPR vans are also leased. They don't want to return them damaged at the end of the lease. So they don't signwrite them.
