MI Auto Body Shops Offering Deals During Coronavirus Outbreak

Written by Ali Hoxie, WXYZ News

Auto body shops are remaining opening during the coronavirus pandemic, and some in Michigan are offering special deals for essential workers still hitting the roads.

“We have known for sometime that we are the backbone that has to move on the roads these days. We are essential; we have been essential all this time,” said Bill Nalu, president of Interstate Auto Care in Madison Heights.


Right now, Interstate Auto Care has taken $10 off an oil change. They are also offering to pick up customers' cars for free, and sanitizing the inside.


The goal is to keep working on cars while maintaining social distancing.


“You don’t even necessarily come into the building," said Nalu. "We have a lockbox outside so that you can pick up you vehicle with your invoice that we can either email or give you a physical copy."


Certain Midas locations are offering deals for first responders and those in the health care industry.


Todd McIntyre, general manager for the Midas in Adrian, said the shop is asking people not go intwaiting rooms and to call ahead.


“I would urge anybody that’s looking for automotive service, tires, oil change, brakes, give us a call, call your location and let's see if we can talk,” said McIntyre.


“I remind folks out there, and I certainly remind myself on a regular basis, that we are modeling this to our children, we are modeling this to our elderly, who are depending on us to be the strength that is required,” said Nalu.


Select auto shop locations are also offering cleaned out rental cars to help limit people sitting in waiting rooms.
