At Peak Auto we are doing our part to help slow/stop the spread of Covid-19 by still allowing customers to have their vehicles registered, serviced, and or repaired. In today’s world internet access, hot water, groceries, and transportation are all essential needs. We are told not to take taxis or public transportation, this new restriction puts even more demand on our vehicles. Especially if we are living alone and don’t have anyone to call except a tow truck in an emergency, how would I get home?
Pea Auto is open for normal business hours however we are not accepting waiting appointments during this time. We also strongly encourage you to use our after hours service of leaving your vehicle and picking up your vehicle to help limit an extra point of contact. Peak Auto technicians always wash their hands thoroughly before every vehicle interaction and wear latex gloves while working on your vehicle. Thank you for helping us keep this economy moving while slowing the spread!!!!
