Can you get your car serviced or repaired in Auckland during Level 3 lockdown?

At My Auto Shop, we have a true focus on helping people get better care for their cars, and New Zealand car owners trust us to provide the very best car servicing & repairs experiences. So, during Level 3, we want to provide an even safer and more convenient experience for New Zealand drivers, by giving Kiwis the option to get their car picked up and dropped off from the mechanic for free. Easy as!

What is Contactless Car Servicing & Repairs?

It’s the same unbeatable value car servicing and repairs our customers are used to, but with an added focus on convenience, safety and hygiene.

These services are all about keeping each other safe and healthy. During your service, you may see your mechanic take the follow steps to ensure safe servicing:

  • Practicing social distancing within their workshop
  • Allocating 1 mechanic to a car
  • Using appropriate PPE
  • Avoiding skin to skin contact, such as handshakes
  • Not letting any customer set foot in the workshop
  • Washing and sanitizing hands on a regular basis
  • Wearing gloves in cars
  • Disinfecting touch points such as door handles and the steering wheel with disinfectant spray
  • Sanitizing keys before and after jobs

Can you get your car serviced or repaired in Auckland during Level 3 lockdown?

Yes. Non-contact businesses are allowed to operate, which includes mechanics who implement contactless measures.

With a second outbreak of COVID-19 out and about in Auckland, the result of a Level 3 lockdown has got us sitting at home, and the car’s not getting up to much. Despite all the extra-time looking after the kids, why not knock that WoF or service off the list with My Auto Shop. 

Can you get your car serviced or repaired during level 2 restrictions around the rest of New Zealand?

You sure can! Mechanics are open around the country carrying out their regular work keeping our cars on the road. Getting work done on your car is similar to normal, but just a few more precautions are put in place to keep everyone safe. What’s more, if you’re stuck at home, one of our driver partners can pick up and drop off your car, so you don’t have to lift a finger (apart from the one changing the TV channel).

What is the easiest and safest way to get my car repaired?

If you are in need of a WoF, service, or whatever your car needs, My Auto Shop has contactless options available that have been designed to keep both you and mechanics safe and healthy. Simply just book online, and you can have the best mechanics in your area at your fingertips. If you don’t feel like making a fashion statement and putting on the mask, feel free to get your car picked up. 

How do our drivers safely carry out pickup and drop off of your car?

The well-being of My Auto Shop’s customers is one of our top priorities. As we move into Level 3, we are continuing our pick and drop off service for your car, and want to make sure you know the important steps guided by the Ministry of Health that our drivers are taking to keep yourself safe during pick up and drop offs. Such as contactless interactions, sanitizing vehicles with disinfectant, using disposable seat covers and other PPE.

What else do I need to know?

  • Please let us know if anyone with COVID-19 symptoms has recently been in your car
  • For vehicle pick up and drop off, your car must be drive-able and in a roadworthy condition.
