Coronavirus Update (July 2020)
We continue to remain open and functional.
We have implemented many changes to our factory unit, and our staff are working staggered hours to allow for better social distancing. Some staff, however, still cannot return to work due to vulnerable situations and childcare/school issues.
We are doing our best to manage and cope – and we continue to appreciate your patience during this time. Whilst your life may have returned to normal, this, unfortunately, is not the case for all of us, so please keep this in mind. Remember, our number one priority is the health and safety of our staff.
“Why can’t I talk to someone on the phone?!”
We know how frustrating this must be, but please consider the following…
Jonathon Skinner, who is the main point of contact with the in-depth knowledge of these cars, is presently assisting his staff on the shop-floor on a daily basis, due to reduced numbers working at the unit. Whilst he would love to field phone calls and answer all of your questions – this can be very time-consuming…
As a result, we would request that you:
1) Initially send an enquiry via email or our Contact Form with as much detail of your car as possible.
2) Once the basics are out of the way, if you still wish to discuss things in more detail, we can schedule a time that suits both you and Jonathon, and he can give you a call.
Ideally, if everything can be done via email, this would help us out greatly; but we know how nice it is to simply talk to someone to finalise things, so of course, we are happy to do so, but this has to be done on Jonathon’s timetable. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
Production of parts and shipping is on-going.
Due to the aforementioned issues, production time/lead times continue to be affected.
In our view, 2020 should be essentially written-off as most car shows and events have been or will be cancelled. Instead of panicking, rushing and getting frustrated about the situation – use the remaining months of the year wisely. Take your time and restore your car to the level it deserves using a Skinner Kit. When the season arrives in 2021, you will benefit from your hard work and patience undertaken during this testing year.
Thank you all, once again, for your continued support and most of all your patience during these strange times.
The John Skinner Team
