A Detroit-area auto shop is offering medical workers a free oil change for their cars.
Quality Express Lube in Farmington Hills, Michigan, made the offer as healthcare employees work overtime to help patients affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The offer begins Tuesday and lasts until April 13.
To sweeten the deal, the auto body shop is also offering an 18-point safety inspection at no cost.
Even the big three automakers — GM, Ford, and FCA — are finding ways to make car-purchasing and maintenance more consumer-friendly to the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers on the front lines.
Emergency room nurse Adam Blanton was on the receiving end of this deal when he got a 2020 Chrysler Pacifica minivan delivered to him at his front doorstep on a flatbed truck.
“My wife works days. I work nights,” Blanton told the Detroit Free Press. “She’s an X-ray tech. My wife is having another baby so we needed more room.”
The family’s schedule is hectic, so the concierge car service made the process of buying a car go more smoothly for a family on the front lines fighting the coronavirus.
Car companies are not the only ones giving back to healthcare professionals. Companies like &pizza and Sweetgreen are giving away free food to medical workers.
