New page to enable fleets to check current availability of service, maintenance and repair during lockdown

We have created a new page on our web site that allows fleets to check the availability of service, maintenance and repair (SMR) outlets during the coronavirus lockdown.

You can view the page here.

Tim Meadows, vice president and commercial director at epyx, says: “We are dealing with a very fluid situation but, as it stands, although garages are classified as an exempt business by the government, some have understandably decided to close their doors.

“However, there remains a demand for SMR and it is especially important that some form of provision is easily accessible to fleets involved in transporting and supporting key workers.

“What we are trying to do, as quickly as possible, is build a relatively complete picture of where and when people can access the services they need to keep on the road.

“On our web site, we are building a list of businesses that we know to be closed and fleets will be able to cross-reference this to 1link Service Network to check availability.”

Tim added that any business that was having difficulties accessing the SMR services they required should contact epyx and the company would do its best to help.

“We very much intend to play our part in helping fleets that need to be mobile to stay mobile. The same principle applies to vehicle hire, also an exempt business, and our 1link Hire Network can be used by fleets to source cars and vans needed, especially for key workers.”
