AKS Tuning are hoping to remain open during the recently announced National Lockdown. The government rules currently state that you can and should still travel to venues that are open as long as you are safe to do so.
Do not travel to us if you or anyone in your ‘bubble’ are showing symptoms. Do not travel to us if you have been in close contact with a positive case at any point in the 14 days preceding your booking.
The workshop will remain open to existing bookings only. Please do not ask to be considered for any cancellation slots as they are not being offered.
High contact points (handles, steering wheel, stalks etc) in vehicles continue to be disinfected both prior to our team working on them and at handover once work is completed.
The building will remain closed to all customers and visitors. That includes the waiting room, toilet facilities etc. We know the weather is not nice but please make alternative arrangements or come prepared to wait outside whilst we work on your car. You should avoid bringing friends/family with you if you can.
Web and over the phone orders are still being taken and will be shipped as usual. As with the first lockdown, there may be some delays if staff and/or courier availability becomes an issue. We are not offering any parts or orders for collection. This is to limit the amount of face-to-face contact between customers and team members.
Nobody would choose this situation if they were being given a choice. We are thankful that we are not in an industry that is being forced to close, but many businesses have been backed into a corner and many more owners and employees face increasingly uncertain futures.
Whether you agree with the decision to lockdown or not, or even if you don’t believe in the severity of Covid-19, we must follow the rules and do all that we can to reduce the infection rate. If not for the safety of the general public and to relieve pressure on our NHS, then do it out of respect for the thousands of businesses that face complete ruin if they aren’t able to reopen in 4 week’s time!
- Big thanks from Team AKS!
