Please familiarise yourself with this, it’s for the benefit of us all.

 We will maintain a 2m+ physical distance at all times


  1. Appointments only, no drive-ins.
  2. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, please rearrange your booking. If you arrive with symptoms, you will be turned away.
  3. Please remove all items from the area I will be working on. This includes tissues, food and drink. This is to ensure I have clear access and minimise contact. If seats have to be lifted, please remove seat covers if they prevent this.
  4. On arrival, please leave all doors open to clear air from your car. If it’s raining, please fully open all windows.
  5. Place your key in the clearly labelled drop-box in the lobby. Your key will be sanitised. Remove keyrings that will be damaged by liquid.
  6. Keys and the areas that I touch, will be sanitised before and after working.
  7. Unfortunately you can’t wait in reception. This is because it doesn’t have opening windows, so I can’t easily clear the air. You are welcome to stand in the lobby, by the open door. I'm next to NT Saltram House, where you can walk, or sit and enjoy the views.
  8. Payment by debit card. This can be by phone, or quickly in the office. If you don’t have a debit card, we can arrange a bank transfer, before you collect your car. No cash accepted.
  9. 24hr drop off and collection can be arranged. Vehicles, keys and contents are left at your own risk. 24hr CCTV on premises.
  10. Your contact details will be shared, if needed, as part of the  UK Covid-19 Test and Trace system.


Please get in touch if you have any questions about your appointment.

I will update when the situation improves. We can all look forward to that time!

Take care everyone. Allan Bugg.
