ATS Euromaster: Most centres open, but priority given to emergency fleets
Even emergency vehicles need breakdown assistance, servicing and tyres, and this is one main reason why the government has authorised garages and fast-fits to remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic. ATS Euromaster confirms that most of its service centres remain open following the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday, however they ask customers for understanding should prearranged jobs be postponed in order to prioritise emergency fleet work.
Centres that have closed are: Barrhead, Driffield, Mansfield, Park Royal, Weston Super Mare and Winchester.
“The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and customers remains our number one priority,” shared ATS Euromaster in a statement. “To help keep our workforce safe, and to ensure they can continue their vital work, we ask that you do not visit our service centres if you are exhibiting the symptoms of the Coronavirus.”
Staff at ATS Euromasters are taking precautions including hygiene measures and additional cleaning as well as social distancing. Waiting area chairs have been spaced further apart where possible. Customers may be asked to wait in their vehicles to reduce the number of customers inside a centre at any given time.
At present centres are only accepting card payments and are ensuring that chip and pin machines are suitably cleaned for each and every transaction. Customers will not be asked to ‘sign’ for work using digital vehicle tablets, and with staff signing on their behalf.
