The 4WD Shed Newsletter - August 2020

Date Posted:1 August 2020 



Restrictions are back but we are still open!

After what seemed to be a move in the right direction with restrictions easing, here in Victoria we saw an increase in case daily until restrictions were put back in place last month. Starting with certain "Hotspots" continued positive results have seen Melbourne Metro & Mitchell Shire return to Stage 3 Restrictions.
This means that people living in these areas are restricted in recreational tarvel to areas outside of these zones & advised to only leave their homes for the 4 essential reasons. This can lead to confusion as the literature wasnt overly clear about visiting an automotive business such as The 4WD Shed.
AAAA (Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association) has shared its concern about reports that Police are advising some motorists that Automotive is not an essential service during lockdown in Victoria. The Victorian Government has confirmed that automotive service is essential to households. Our advice to you is the following message:

"We can confirm that we are still open during Stage 3 restrictions in Victoria in line with essential service requirements. The Minister for Police has formally confirmed that Victorians can engage in movement associated with the service and repair of their vehicle. We thank you for your ongoing support in these difficult times."

Our team has continued throughout to practice social distancing, hygiene & other prevention methods to keep both our customers & staff safe when at The 4WD Shed. We have a limit in our retail showroom of 15 patrons to keep the required 4m square guidelines & also offer a santising station at our front door before entering as well as a number of hand santisers located around the showroom & counters.
We have expanded our counter sales area so we can comfortably serve a number of customers whilst keeping a safe distance between everyone & continue to offer contactless payment method & keydrop facilities if required. Please let us know if you require any extra measures when booking , we are happy to accommodate you.
