UK’s Fixter Offers Special Discount for ‘Key Workers’ Amid Coronavirus Lockdown


UK-based car maintenance service app Fixter is helping ensure ‘key workers’—those who are working round-the-clock during the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) crisis—have less issues to worry about so they can focus on the task at hand—providing those affected by the dreaded disease with the products and services they need. Fixter announced a new voucher code that will provide free collection and delivery of the key worker’s vehicle, as well as a GBP 10.00 (approximately PhP 600) contribution to their order.

Fixter provides these guidelines on how to redeem their offer.

  • Step 1: visit page
  • Step 2: make a booking for either MOT, service or repair and choose a slot for picking up your car
  • Step 3: apply code ‘KEEPUP’ to redeem the offer (the code may be automatically applied to your basket)
  • Step 4: send proof to show you are a key worker at least a day before your car is due to be collected
  • Step 5: we’ll pick up your car at a location of your choice and drop it back when the work’s done
So how would a Fixter user know that they are eligible for Fixter’s limited offer? The company provides the following list of ‘qualified key workers.’
  • Frontline health workers such as doctors and nurses
  • Teachers and social workers
  • Workers in key public services including those essential to the justice system, religious staff and public service journalists
  • Local and national government workers deemed crucial to delivering essential public services
  • Workers involved in food production processing, distribution, sale and delivery
  • Public safety workers including police, armed forces personnel, firefighters and prison staff
  • Essential air, water, road and rail transport workers
  • Utilities, communication and financial services staff, including postal workers and waste disposal workers
In their announcement, Fixter said that the voucher offer is valid until June 30, although they reserve the right to cancel the offer if the COVID-19 situation changes. “We reserve the right to remove the offer if the customer fails to prove that they are a key worker,” the company added. It would sure do a lot of good if our very own car maintenance service providers here in the country can implement something similar to Fixter’s efforts.
