Burt Brothers Keeps 12 Car Repair Shops Open While Taking COVID-19 Precautions
With vehicle care deemed “essential” during the COVID-19 crisis, Burt Brothers Tire & Service continues operating its Northern Utah shops with safety measures.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRUnderground) March 25th, 2020
A March 19 directive from the Department of Homeland Security deemed vehicle service and repair essential even as other operations shut down in order to stem the rising tide of COVID-19 cases. Burt Brothers Tire and Service is honoring that directive by keeping their 12 locations along Utah’s Wasatch Front fully operational. However, they are taking measures to protect both their customers and employees.
Burt Brothers is a family-owned and operated chain of auto repair and tire stores. They offer a broad selection of all-season and winter tires as well as bumper-to-bumper car service and repair from ASE-certified technicians.
The company, which was started by brothers Ron and Wendel Burt nearly 30 years ago, has always prided itself on personalized care for Utah drivers.
“There are a lot of nationally-run tire dealers and car service shops here, but we bring a local perspective and a deep commitment to the communities that we have grown up in and live in,” said Jeremy Burt. Jeremy is one of the Burt Brothers’ five sons who have recently purchased the business for a second generation of excellence.
According to Jeremy, the company is pleased to be allowed to continue serving the needs of Utah residents, and they are also committed to keeping patrons and their employees safe from COVID-19 risks.
Their precautions include:
- Implementing a touchless experience . Burt Brothers facilitates online appointment scheduling, key drop boxes, text-to-pay options, and “touch-less” vehicle pickup and delivery to keep staff and patrons safe.
- Sanitizing shops more frequently. Though Burt Brothers is known in Utah for its clean and comfortable shops, the team has developed protocols to keep door handles, credit card readers, waiting areas, and restrooms clean and sanitized through all hours of operation.
- Reinforcing health protocols with shop teams . Employees are more vigilant than ever when it comes to frequent and proper hand-washing, glove use, and the use of seat covers, steering wheel covers, and floor mats in cars. They will also be wiping down door handles, gear shift handles, etc., when working on customer cars.
Jeremy said that his father and uncle grew their business based on their commitment to people, and that will continue to guide his company’s safety decisions for their auto repair shops.
“We are in the business of repairing vehicles, but our guests and our team are our main priority right now,” said Jeremy.
