TrustFord has instructed its mobile service operation to prioritise NHS staff and essential workers during the Coronavirus crisis.
The company’s mobile servicing vehicles, normally used to support large fleet needs, have been switched to supporting NHS, frontline and essential workers struggling to reach their local site.
Already servicing key worker vehicles across its network in England and Northern Ireland, the company’s fleet of mobile vans can now reach essential front line and individual needs from their hubs in Kent, Dagenham, Heathrow, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Yorkshire and Northern Ireland.
It is anticipated that the vans will be in high demand but the company has committed to do its very best to offer appointments to fit around hectic schedules during the crisis.
The company is also using selected Parts Plus hubs to reach out to NHS community nursing units to offer free disposable seat covers to help keep their staff safe.
TrustFord’s chairman and CEO Stuart Foulds said: "Our Fleet team is fast tracking essential vehicle orders and Aftersales colleagues have been actively supporting customers on site to keep key workers on the road since the crisis started. It seemed logical to also mobilise our servicing units to reach those who cannot easily visit a site. The idea to give away free disposable seat covers came through an appeal my wife spotted and I was delighted that our Parts Plus team was able to source some to give away. We will continue to support and look for ways to support those in essential roles at this critical time."
