RE: Customers Service Appointments

Here at Joe’s, the safety of our customers’ and employees has and continues to be one of our number one priorities. Facing the current crisis our commitment to that goal will not change.

As one of the leading automotive repair centers in the Slinger Area, we want to ensure we are doing our part to assist in preventing the spread of the virus while maintaining a healthy environment for both clients and team members.

With accordance to the CDC, Joe’s has and continues taking the following precautions:

  1. The repeated routine of cleaning all commonly used surfaces in our shop throughout each day.
  2. Our clients’ vehicles will be disinfected before and after service to protect clients and team members.
  3. Our technicians and office staff have been instructed to wash hands for 20+ seconds regularly throughout each day.
  4. To wear gloves during services provided.

We are monitoring all staff for symptoms and will require them to stay home if any viral symptoms are present.
