MIA Endorses Level Four Lockdown
Distributors of new vehicles and their franchised dealerships are ensuring all non-essential services are shut down now that the COVID-19 alert level 4 is in force nationwide.
Motor Industry Association chief executive, David Crawford, said that during this time the only functions distributors and dealers will undertake is to supply parts and to repair vehicles that are used in essential services.
He added that stopping transmission of the virus is the primary aim of alert level 4, and therefore all core distributor and dealer functions will cease, apart from those needed to ensure delivery of essential services.
The Motor Industry and Motor Trade Associations both endorse the Government’s position on action taken to prevent the spread of the virus.
Mr Crawford concluded “We ask the public to be understanding if a request to service or repair your vehicle during this time is declined. The sooner we can stop the spread of the virus the sooner New Zealand can reopen for business.”
