Special Assistance for all Saskatoon Healthcare workers, Essential and Emergency Services Personnel, Seniors, and "At Risk" Citizens

Free Vehicle Pickup/Return Service

To Our Frontline Workers and Vulnerable Citizens

First of all, we would all like to say thank you to all the Saskatoon healthcare workers, essential and emergency services employees out there keeping us safe during this difficult time. We would also like to offer a special service to you as well as senior citizens and families with special needs or “at risk” family members.

We understand the importance of having safe, reliable transportation during this difficult time and will remain open for as long as we are able to do so. Unplanned breakdowns are an inconvenience during the best of times. For this reason, we want to show our support and appreciation to these vital members of our community and alleviate as much burden as possible. We would like to offer FREE pick up and return of all vehicles in need of service and offer our cost-saving VIP discounts to all those in need during this difficult time. You DO NOT need to be a VIP member to utilize our savings program - we know times are hard and we want to help.

Safety First

First and foremost, we want to let you know that our number one priority is the health and safety of our staff, their families and our customers. We want to assure you that we are going above and beyond the recommended precautions to provide a clean, safe environment for everyone. We have the right people, processes and systems in place to safely provide and sustain services to our customers.

Some of the precautions include:

• Ensuring that no staff members engaging with your vehicle are potentially sick or at risk of exposure
• Wearing single-use protective gloves and properly disposing of them for each vehicle
• Single use seat covers in your vehicle and removing them at time of return
• Disinfection of the driver’s compartment and all touch points (including keys)

Exclusions

Regrettably, we cannot offer this service to you at this time If you are in self-quarantine, have travelled within the last 14 days, knowingly came into close proximity or contact with anyone who has travelled or been infected, or you suspect you or someone in your household has been infected. Contact us and we will be happy to book you in for a future date.

Shuttle Service and Courtesy Cars

For the safety of patrons and staff, we will not be offering shuttle service or courtesy cars at this time.

As always, we will contact you with your initial estimate with pictures and/or video so you can make informed decisions on potential repairs. In addition to free pickup/return, we also offer a convenient after-hours vehicle drop-off at our location, with a secure key drop box. Once serviced you can pick it up or arrange a drop-off time at your location. For payment options we are offering a choice of credit card payment processed over the phone.

If you require automotive repair services and would like to schedule a free pickup/return, please call Saskatoon Auto Connection, Mon-Fri from 8am to 5pm, at 306-373-8800 and press 2 at the prompt. If your vehicle requires towing, we will work with you to make the arrangements. You can trust our professional team here at the Auto Connection - Auto Care Service Centre. We are an SGI accredited full-service shop that can look after any of your repairs – big or small.

We are all in this together and ready to serve you. Stay safe out there.
