    Good evening everyone.

    As of tomorrow, we will be closing the workshop for the foreseeable future.

    Whilst we are in a relatively remote location, we have some tentants who feel that having their usual chinwag with 10 people a day is still absolutely fine, so I feel its best to protect me, kerrie, Matt and everyone we may come across during the day.

    It's all a bit uncertain at this time, but we will return as soon as possible.

    Stay safe AND STAY INDOORS unless you absolutely HAVE to leave.

    It's just an excuse so that you can play with your own cars in the workshop all day... :rolleyes:

    Admirable thing to do Alex , it needs everyone to take this sort of action to stop this virus spreading, just a shame the 20 idiots having a BBQ yesterday in Birmingham didn't think it was a good idea

    Darwinism is alive and well in Brum - just sad they have no consideration for the wider population

    They should be charged - Public Nuisance at the very least.

    Gov said garages can open, we decided as a duty of care to my staff, families and myself, getting in and out of 10-15 cars a day isn’t safe. To confirm our decision, Colindale mb, owned by mb closed, so no parts available. Although we have a large stock of service parts and common failures for mercs, it wasn’t worth the risk. Stay safe everybody.

    We , like STAR, have done it on our own backs. We keep stock of service bits too, but had lots of jobs that needed parts that aren't available from our local dealer partner (lookers group MB) as they have closed as well.

    As I understand, it’s not extended by 6 months, it’s a rolling extension and will need to be done when safely possible. I could be wrong.
