    On the 21st of March 2020, the New Zealand Government released a set of alert levels. These Covid 19 alert levels, ranging from 1 to 4 will be used to help manage the way New Zealand deals with the pandemic.

    As of 1.45pm, 23 March, New Zealand the COVID-19 level raised to level 3, meaning some non-essential businesses will close to the public. A non-essential business is a business which doesn’t provide vital services to the public. With the closure of non-essential businesses, things should still be able to run smoothly.

    At 9.41pm on Monday 23 March 2020, the Motor Trade Association (MTA) emailed Grimmer Motors to let us know the the New Zealand Government had extended its list of Essential Service Businesses to include “any entity that keeps vehicles operating for essential work purposes”.

     

    Examples of non-essential businesses might include:

    • Movie Cinemas / Theaters
    • Gyms and recreation centres
    • Casinos and Gambling houses
    • Salons and spas
    • Museums
    • Swimming pools
    • Car and Horse / Dog racing tracks
    • Shopping malls
    • Ten Pin Bowling alleys
    • Sporting venues
    • Concert venues

    Is auto repair an essential business?

    YES! New Zealand and other countries have separated essential and non-essential businesses, and auto repair businesses will remain open as essential businesses as “any entity that keeps vehicles operating for essential work purposes”.  This means that you will still be able to bring your car into workshops such as Grimmer Motors for a Warrant of Fitness, service, inspection, diagnostics or repair.

    Some reasons Auto repair workshops should be considered essential businesses are because:

    • It is necessary for many families to have access to a car. This helps with groceries, work, and healthcare commitments. Workshops must remain open to repair vehicles if necessary.
    • Car safety. We need to carry out necessary car repairs to keep you and others on our roads safe.
    • Cars and other vehicles are required for many other businesses to continue operating as normal. In the event that a vehicle needs repair, a mechanic should be available to do the job.
    • In the event of an emergency, it is important to have access to reliable transport. When you bring your car to Grimmer Motors, we’ll ensure it is working smoothly and safely.
