Maverick online workshop Fixter rolls out sanitisation service to Londoners

By CARSIFU | 8 April 2020

LONDON: The pandemic has resulted in new business opportunities for some.

While car sanitisation service have been around for years, it has come into its own with the present crisis set to last for months until an effective treatment or cure for Covid-19  is found. That is a year to 18 months away.

Take Fixter for example. Britain's first end-to-end online car maintenance service provider today introduced a new vehicle sanitisation service for customers here.

A base-level service starts at £29.99 (RM162) covering essential touch points, while a more comprehensive service is also available, covering additional areas of the car.

Once a service has been booked, Fixter will call to arrange and confirm service details with the customers.


Fixter said its team of workers will clean customer vehicles at their doorstep, while following all WHO protocols, including hand washing, gel protocols and maintaining safe distances when dealing with customers to avoid physical contact.

“We want to make it as hassle-free as possible for our London customers to have their cars sanitised – which is why we will go to them and carry-out this new service," said Fixter co-founder and CEO Limvirak Chea.

"We know that since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, concerns about vehicle interior cleanliness has been understandably very significant and we hope that our new initiative will go some way to reassuring customers who want to use their cars.

“The safety of our customers and staff is our priority and therefore all of our Fixter specialists follow strict WHO protocols. We use forensic principles to guide the processes of sanitising the customers' car at all times. This is to ensure we don’t cross contaminate or re-contaminate anyone's vehicle. All of our equipment is either disposed of, or sanitised between different bookings.”

Fixter was founded to make car maintenance as easy as booking a taxi. Since launching in Manchester in 2017, Fixter has expanded to more than 100 cities across Britain.
