Why mobile mechanics could have a key role to play during the lockdown

At epyx, we’re currently highlighting the particular advantages of mobile mechanics for fleets delivering essential services during the coronavirus lockdown. While a relatively large number of workshops are staying open through the crisis, it seems to us that mobile has an important role to play at the moment in supporting those on the frontline.

Firstly, for fleets that are involved in delivering essential services and transporting key workers, mobile can provide the means for more flexible SMR provision, ensuring that vehicles stay roadworthy that might otherwise be difficult to maintain and repair. Someone who has been working straight through for days on end can have work carried out at their home when they finally get some time off, while another person who is unavoidably working every day can have it done at their place of employment.

Secondly, for people that are self-isolating, mobile means that their vehicle can be kept in roadworthy condition whilst reducing the potential risk of infection to themselves.

epyx can provide mobile mechanics from almost 20 different sources across almost the entire country through 1link Service Network. All fleets that want to book mobile have to do is tick a box in the platform to see current availability.
