Cazana has launched a brand-new website to help all the people working on the front line in the fight again the coronavirus and COVID-19 stay mobile during these unprecedented times we all find ourselves living in at the moment.
KeyworkerGarages.co.uk is free for anyone to use and contains information on garages and service centres around the UK that are open and offering support for key workers with servicing and vehicle repairs. Cazana has so far gathered data from over 1,000 service centres across the UK from their partner dealers that are still open and has listed them on the new website. The map shows the locations of the 1,012 operational garages, but Cazana is also encouraging centres that are open but are not listed to get in touch so they can be added, particularly those in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The service is open to all NHS workers, carers, members of the emergency services, volunteers and support staff and delivery drivers as well the thousands of people working in supermarkets and essential shops up and down the country, keeping the UK going during the lockdown.
All you need to do is key in your postcode and the website will show you a list of your nearest open garage or service centre, along with their opening hours and contact details, so you can get your vehicle booked in.
Tom Wood at Cazana says that: “This is a challenging time for both the automotive industry and all those who are on the front line fighting this pandemic and we wanted to do something as a team to help both the nation’s essential keyworkers and the dealer service departments remaining open. I’m massively proud of the team here at Cazana who have been collecting data and have built this new site over the past week with the intention of helping people to stay mobile during this crisis”.
