Although the world is temporarily shut down during this Pandemic, there are still essential items needed including medication, groceries and healthcare. This is a good time to ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly and that you have enough gas. I, personally, have a horrible record of my car not starting or needing repair at the most unfortunate times.
This winter, with freezing temps, my car which has served me well for many years, would intermittently not start. Usually just a jump start was required, but, of course, there are always the times that it is something more and you want someone qualified to be there for repairs.
I recently discovered RepairSmith and have been learning a great deal from their blog. Just click here to find some enlightening articles, especially in this difficult time.
RepairSmith is one of the easiest ways to repair and maintain your car. They offer upfront pricing, online booking, text and phone support, and a service warranty. And honestly, the best part during this right now with the COVID-19 Pandemic is that their expert mechanics come to you.
I love the idea of mobile mechanics as it is convenient and safer during these times. During the Coronavirus outbreak, RepairSmith has put no-contact precautions into place with their technicians via their ‘No-Contact Car Repair’ policy. If you schedule a repair with RepairSmith, their technicians will avoid direct contact during the appointment to ensure your safety as well as their own. You can leave your keys for them in a convenient location and handle all communication with them through your phone, including payment. I find that very comforting and reassuring as well as incredible easy.
Additionally, their technicians will disinfect all high-touch surfaces in your car such as door handles and side panels, as well as all highly-used tools and equipment.

As we all know, practicing good hygiene and safety precautions are crucial during this time. If you have to drive somewhere, make sure you’re doing so responsibly. If you go to the grocery store, wipe down the cart before you use it and practice social distancing as much as you possibly can. We all know that may not be easy in the drugstore or market, but, taking precautions and disinfecting, then later handwashing when you can, will help as well as giving you peace of mind which is so important.
Remaining calm in these times is not easy, however, stress really depletes the immune system and leaves us more open to infection. This applies at any time, and, even moreso during this COVID-19 Pandemic. We really need to take care of ourselves and those we love. Do your best to connect via phone call, text, Skype or FaceTime. Just checking in with a neighbor, friend or family member can offer much needed support. Try your best to stay hydrated and get enough sleep as sleep is so important for our health.
Please stay safe, my friends. We’re all in this together.
