No wave of disruption this time say OESAA members via Andy Savva video

Published:  17 November, 2020

The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) and its members are reassuring garages they are all very much open for business during the current lockdown via a video from OESAA spokesman Andy Savva a.k.a The Garage Inspector.

Spring’s COVID-19 lockdown sprang a wave of disruption across the aftermarket. Garages faced parts supply interruption, with local motors reducing service levels. Meanwhile, factories and parts distribution companies also experienced disruption.

Nigel Morgan, Chairman of OESAA says it’s different that this time: “OESAA members, along with our distributor partners, are absolutely committed to staying open to support the aftermarket during the current lockdown, which everyone hopes will end soon in early December.

“We want to reassure all vehicle repairers of the continuity of supply of components following the disruption caused by the first lockdown.

Nigel added: “We also urgently need garages to in turn reassure vehicle owners that they are definitely allowed, under UK government lockdown rules, to take their vehicles in to workshops for necessary repairs, servicing and MOT testing. Garages can secure timely supplies of the essential high-quality parts our members offer in order to safely repair vehicles during these challenging times.”

Andy Savva’s video, which also includes contributions from Steve Richardson at Alliance Automotive, Andy Hamilton of Euro Car Parts and Neil Croxson from The Parts Alliance, can be viewed or downloaded from the OESAA website at
