Arc Fleet Services is fully operational again after having to restrict what is was offering customers during the first few weeks of lockdown.

Some services had been suspended such as vehicle accident and retail mechanical repairs as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The company, however, kept its rental services operational to continue to support key workers, charities, local organisations and essential businesses throughout the government closure.

Ian Moffat, managing director of Arc Fleet Services, said: “We are really pleased to be resuming our full range of services.

“Throughout the lockdown period, we have continued to support our key customers and have supplied free loan vehicles to local organisations and essential workers, including out of hours emergency repair work for vital support services.”

However, he says the business is now offering rental services, accident repairs, and vehicle servicing and repair work.

Moffat explained: “At Arc we continue to take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and keeping our colleagues, customers, suppliers and contractors visiting our sites safe, still remains our top priority.

“As a result, we have implemented additional health and safety protocols which include a pre-booking system for all external visitors, additional cleaning and sanitising of workspaces and equipment, sanitising of vehicles and a strict two-metre distancing policy is in place at all times.

“We will continue to follow government and industry guidelines to contain the spread of the virus.”

He continued: “I would like to thank our dedicated staff who have worked tirelessly over the last few weeks to ensure that our support services have continued throughout this ongoing crisis.

“Also, a big thank you to our customers for their support and understanding while we have had to adapt to the situation and change our usual opening times.”
