RIVUS provides low cost MOTs to NHS and Care Workers

Rivus Fleet Solutions has announced that it is providing low cost MOTs to support NHS and care workers through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The MOTs are available immediately and are priced at £20, which is about half the price that drivers would normally pay.

The offer is available until the end of June – and to qualify, eligible workers simply need to show their work pass when they drop off a vehicle. The offer is being made available to support this group of front-line staff as they go about their work – and to thank them for their tremendous work in such a critical time for the country.

Rivus, formerly known as BT Fleet, has a network of 55 garages across the UK and the bulk of their work is maintaining commercial vehicles for some the county’s most well-known companies. These operate in essential sectors such as telecommunications, utilities, highways, the environment and post. Many Rivus customers also have cars and light vehicles in their fleets – meaning that their garages are equally well equipped to service, maintain the everyday cars that most of us drive.

Although MOTs rules have been relaxed through the coronavirus crisis in the form of a six-month extension, Rivus recommends that drivers of cars that are still getting plenty of use stick to their pre-exising schedules wherever possible. Not only will this help to keep vehicles safer, but it’s also likely to make the vehicles more attractive to future buyers.

The breadth of facilities in a Rivus garage also means that the company is able to accommodate any other work that a car needs when having an MOT. This includes servicing, maintenance and repair for all popular brands. Their garages even have a huge range of diagnostic equipment for the more complex jobs.

Michael Scheidler, Chief Development Officer at Rivus says, “NHS workers and other people in the caring professions are real heroes in this crisis. We at Rivus want to show them how much they are appreciated by offering something that will help to keep their vehicles safe as they go about their work, together with helping them to save their money at the same time.”

Michael adds, “We have a vast network of garages and all of our technicians are a minimum Level 3 qualified for light or heavy vehicle maintenance and repair – so anyone interested in the offer can have total faith in our ability to keep their cars safe.”

Eligible workers who want to take up the offer need to search ‘Rivus Fleet Solutions’ online, and find their nearest garage using the Garage Network option on the homepage. Then simply phone up the local garage and book the car in.
