The online car maintenance service, Fixter, is offering London-based customers over 65-years-old help with the delivery of essential items when collecting and returning vehicles.
Anyone can book a car MOT, service or repair, either for themselves or on behalf of their relative, friend or neighbour, who is over the age of 65, and then request the additional help such as the delivery of essential supplies. Fixter will then contact the person making the booking the day before the car is picked-up to check the help required and ask its drivers to help wherever practically possible.
Fixter has found that demand for its “physical-contact free” service has increased significantly over the last week and recent days as customers minimise contact and stay at home. It has stepped-up sanitising measures of vehicle steering wheel, gear levers, driving controls and interior and exterior door handles and provides further reassurance of “physical-contact-free” service with no need to sign documents or touch the screen of a handheld computer device.
Fixter drivers wash their hands with soap and water and use sanitiser gels at regular intervals, whilst maintaining social distance and wearing protective gloves.
