The global pandemic has redefined life as we know it. People are reconsidering how they go about everyday tasks – such as car maintenance and repair – given the rules currently in place.
Prior to COVIID-19, vehicle owners would simply schedule an appointment with their preferred repair shop or dealer service center. With stay-at-home orders varying per state, people might be wondering if they could still schedule an Audi repair or VW repair in Nashville.
Yes, you can still have your car serviced
According to a memorandum issued by the Department of Homeland Security, the vehicle service and repair industry, including workers supporting or enabling transportation and logistics functions such as maintenance and repair technicians, are considered essential and must remain open.
So yes, car owners can still have their car fixed, but there will be changes in the usual procedure. Operating hours are shorter and staff sizes are smaller – this could mean fewer job requests can be accommodated. Vehicle pick-up and drop-off procedures have been modified to minimize human interaction and lessen the risk of infection. A few dealerships have even introduced a mobile service option, where technicians complete Audi repair or VW repair requests at the owner’s home. Stricter sanitation procedures are also in place; high-touch areas such as offices, shared electronic devices, bathrooms, and waiting rooms are disinfected every hour.
When should I have my car fixed?
In the interest of public safety, it is recommended that repairs should be scheduled only if the car is unsafe to drive or has a serious mechanical issue that stops you from doing essential activities like going to work or doing a grocery run. Given the limited travel options at this time, oil changes and tire rotations can be deferred.
If you feel that your car’s issues could not wait or if you just want to be sure, it’s still best to consult professional automotive technicians. Get in touch with GPO Tuning today.
