The independent garage association (IGA) is encouraging its members to take advantage of its new free COVID-19 compliance audit.
Members that meet current guidelines will receive a poster to reassure customers that their business is a safe place to visit.
The IGA can also provide guidance on safe working practices to prevent coronavirus transmission.
An IGA spokesperson said: “Members who have used the service so far say that the audit has provided peace of mind that their business has all safety measures and precautions correctly in place, and has really put their customers at ease.
“The audit will be particularly helpful if your garage needs to close due to a local lockdown, as you will be able to quickly and confidently get your business back up and running again when restrictions lift.
Members can book a visit by calling the IGA direct member helpline on 0845 305 4230 or by emailing [email protected].
