Fergussons Auto Services is working with a garage comparison site to offer free car safety checks to key workers.

Following the government’s MOT extension at the end of March, the garage has joint forces with, 'Book My Garage', to help reduce the number of dangerous cars in Sutton.

Fergussons Auto Services is also offering a contactless collection and delivery service, which allows the customer to leave their keys in a bag, in a location agreed with the garage.

The car is then picked up, serviced and returned, leaving the keys and receipts in a bag in the same location.

Director of Fergussons Auto Services, Russell Fergusson, said: "While we realise that all car users who need their cars for essential shopping, collecting medicines and visiting vulnerable neighbours are important, we are giving priority to those people who are on the frontline fighting this virus, especially NHS staff."

Co-founder of Book My Garage, Karen Rotberg, said: “Garages share our concern that it is easy for drivers to be lulled into a false sense of security.

"Some drivers think that because the MOT has been extended for six months, they don’t need to worry about car maintenance.

“When we designed the new safety check, we emailed garages to ask them if they wanted to offer the service.

"We were impressed that more than two-thirds of garages planned to remain open and were overwhelmed at their generosity to go above and beyond to offer the safety check for free to key workers."
