The VIP-style priority program includes “immediate service” for first responders utilizing quick-lane services, such as oil changes and state inspections, according to a company news release.
“We want to ensure that all first responders have one less worry on their plate,” Christian Brothers Automotive President Donnie Carr said in the release. “First responders are putting themselves at risk for the safety of the community, so prioritizing their vehicles is the least we can do to express our sincere gratitude for their commitment.”
As automotive repair shops are classified as essential businesses, a number of them have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many companies have implemented increased sanitization efforts as a result of the virus.
Christian Brothers Automotive stores have switched to digital communication and payment options, and all cars are sanitized before and after each service, the release said.
“Prioritizing the health and safety of guests, the first responders program was specifically designed with convenient, no-contact service in mind,” the release said.
