    Coronavirus / COVID-19 Safe Mechanics in Hamilton

    Grimmer Motors is “on call” during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep vehicles operating for Essential Service Workers

    Coronavirus hygenic car clean

    The interior of your car will be wiped down with disinfectant to reduce the risks of COVID-19.

    What precautions are we taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

    For a lot of New Zealanders, our cars serve as our primary form of transport. With this in mind, it is important that people always have access to auto repairs when they need it. Car repair workshops are likely to stay open throughout the Corona Virus / Covid 19 pandemic as they have been classified as “Essential Services” overseas, and have been classified the same way here in New Zealand.

    Grimmer Motors is “on call” throughout the pandemic as we help keep vehicles operating for essential work purposes. However, the health and safety of our customers and staff will be of our highest priority. To reduce the risk of coronavirus spreading, we have taken the following measures:

    Disinfection of reception and heavily used surfaces:

    • The reception area is kept as clean as possible, with regular disinfecting of contact surfaces, such as reception door handles, chair arm rests, counter tops, desktops, bathroom door handles, plus anything else that has shared contact points.
    • We have removed the magazine rack from reception to avoid many people handling the same books and magazines.

    Disinfection of items:

    • Directly shared contact points are wiped down and kept as clean as possible, such as Car Keys, EFTPOS Machine, Pens, Computer Keyboards and Mice, plus anything else that has more than one person touching it.  

    Keeping your vehicle clean:

    • We wipe down with disinfectant the steering wheel, gear stick, indicator stem, car door handles and any other shared areas of contact before and after working on the customer’s vehicle. 
    • The Grimmer Motors team is encouraged to frequently wash their hands (for 20 seconds) before, during and after working on a customer’s car.
    • Some of our technicians choose to wear gloves while working on customers’ cars.

    Encouraging safe distances with a minimal contact policy

    • We have put a plastic chain up in reception to keep our customers and team at least 2 meters apart, for mutual safety. 
    • Meetings are held with our team members standing or sitting at least 2 meters apart
    • We no longer shake hands with anyone
    • We ask customers to sit as far apart from each other as possible if waiting for their vehicle to be finished, or leave the premises, and we will call / txt as soon as the vehicle is ready.

    Precautions are taken by staff

    • Our team has been given all the latest information about how to avoid Covid 19 such as not touching their face
    • Our team members are encouraged to avoid any contact with people recently back from overseas or any unnecessary gatherings outside of working hours, and that could lead them into contact with carriers of Covid 19.
    • Any team member who is feeling sick or has cold symptoms will be asked to stay home
    • No one except Grimmer Motors Employees is allowed in the workshop / near the vehicles or team members.
    • The Grimmer Motors team is encouraged to frequently wash their hands (for 20 seconds) before, during and after working on a customer’s car. .

    Extra precautions for customers from overseas

    • We have a sign up outside reception asking anyone who has been overseas in the past 14 days, or anyone feeling unwell not to enter the reception area. We would prefer to talk to them over the phone.

    installation of hand-dryers

    • We have installed an air hand dryer in the technician bathroom and are in the process of installing an air hand dryer in the customer bathroom to avoid sharing the use of towels.
