This essential document has been produced by the Garage Equipment Association (GEA), Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF), Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), Scottish Motor Trade Association (SMTA) and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The “COVID-19 Protective Measures: Automotive Aftermarket Sector Industry Guidance and Best Practice” has been supplied by these leading bodies with the aim of educating those in garages, warehouses, mobile operations and parts distributors about safe operating practises surrounding the recent pandemic.
It’s content touches on every aspect of safe operation, from clear communications with customers and colleagues to social distancing, sanitisation and hygiene. It even goes as far as the collection/delivery of vehicles from vulnerable owners.
The document has been made available at a time when many are re-opening their doors for the first time since the initial lockdown was imposed.
Increased demand for MOT tests, service, maintenance and repair is inevitable as many have already returned to the road following the recent relaxation around this lockdown.
Is your equipment calibrated & ready?
With more than 40 million vehicles licensed in the UK, demand on the aftermarket sector for servicing or replacement parts is high at the best of times.
As talk of an early end to the MOT Exemption by the DVSA surfaced recently, there has never been a better time to ensure your house is in order.
