Autoco Car Maintenance Workshops

Why The Autoco Car Maintenance Workshops Have Been Put On Hold.


For the past five years, Autoco has run Car Maintenance Workshops on a regular basis. These workshops have always been designed around the desire to educate our customers and the wider Canberra community about their vehicles, not only to ensure transparency with your mechanic, but to also build the confidence that comes from knowledge for our guests.


This year, the workshops have been on hold. Originally on hold due to the poor air quality in Canberra as a result of the catastrophic bush fires, we decided that it wasn’t safe to host the workshops as they’re held in an open and exposed area that wasn’t ideal for attendees or staffs health as advised by the ACT Government.


After the air quality improved for Canberra, the impact of COVID-19 had become prevalent and a global pandemic had been announced. With this came many new procedure changes for businesses and as a result, we made the very difficult decision to cancel further workshops.


Due to the hands on nature of our Car Maintenance Workshops, it is not currently sustainable for us to run these workshops.


The safety of our guests and staff is of the highest priority. While we’re disappointed to not currently have any workshops running, rest assured that the team at Autoco are working behind the scenes to bring these workshops back as soon as possible, with a few key improvements based on guest feedback.
