The stay at home orders have been confusing for some. What does the stay at home order mean in regards to auto maintenance? Well the short answer is, auto maintenance has been designated an essential business, and the travel to an essential business is permitted. The following verbiage has been used by many states and municipalities:
– *** To perform work providing essential products and services at a life-sustaining business.
**** Any travel related to the provision of or access to the above-mentioned individual activities or life-sustaining business activities.
What it comes down to for us is, we want to keep our guys working because we believe their work can be done safely and without contact – because of this we want to be open so they can receive a paycheck and have one less piece of stress in their life. That being said, if no one is coming in for the service then it doesn’t matter if you’re essential or not.
We have been perfecting the contactless service for the past two weeks, we feel the oil change is a good service that you can take care of and get yourself out of the house to maintain some kind of sanity.
