STRANGER THINGS

UPDATED (May 4th 2020)

 

Light at the End of the Tunnel!

Hey Friends, we hope you and yours are doing well and you’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

Washington State has done a stellar job of managing this emergency and the restrictions on activities are starting to be lifted.  WooHoo!   (Can you say surfing, cycling, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and road-tripping?)

While we’re excited about that, our hearts go out to those whose lives have been irreversibly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are so sorry.

 

Open for Business

We’ve kept 100% of our team working and we’re in great health and spirt!  We’re meticulously cleaning our vans, shop, and office, as well as following strict protocols for distancing and PPE. It’s a new normal (for now).

Everyone is itching to get back out there, and we’re ready to serve you! To help make your getaway easier, we’re offering a “get back out and about there” special of 15% off all 2020 rentals.  Plus, we’ve lowered our peak season nightly minimum to four nights.  Just book anytime in May to receive the 15% special discount.

Our repair and conversion shop is open and busy. Now is a great time to get your beloved VW ready to road trip!

 

Electric Deliveries

We’ve been working with Town and Country Markets here on Bainbridge Island providing grocery deliveries for the past five weeks.  It’s been super fun to use our electric bus, Joule, for this service and it feels great to serve our community.

 

Spread the Love!

It feels like we’re through the worst of this strange time. We’re sure no one has forgotten how wonderful, invigorating, and essential our connection to the outdoors is. Please take care of yourselves and those around you.

Spread the love!

UPDATED (APRIL 6th 2020)

Hey Friends, we wish you good health and cheer. Wow, these weeks have certainly been surreal, and our hearts go out to those who have been overwhelmed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. No doubt we’ve all been impacted in ways that are yet to become clear.

As you know, the Washington State “Stay Home–Stay Healthy” order has been extended through May 4th, so we’re going to be at this for a while longer.

Our team is healthy and in good cheer and we’re fighting hard to keep everyone working – which we’ve been able to do.

Something new we’re very excited about is the new grocery delivery service we’re providing with Town & Country Market here on Bainbridge Island. This service is currently focused on higher-risk individuals, but is likely to expand over time. We’re donating the first two weeks of delivery fees to Helpline House (food bank and social services) and it feels good to be productive and support our community.

In all operations, we’re utilizing PPE (personal protective equipment), and following strict shop and vehicle sanitizing procedures, along with practicing distancing.

Our vehicle repair shop is open and we’re available to provide vehicle rentals to facilitate continuity of operations for essential workforces and other essential travel.

Bottom line: if you need any of these essential services, PacWesty stands ready to support you.

All the best, keep the faith, and spread the love!

UPDATED (MARCH 25th 2020)

Dear friends, colleagues, guests, and adventure playmates. We hope you are doing well.

Now that the “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” order is in effect, we’d like to update you on what’s going on at PacWesty.

As you may know, we have two businesses: 1) van (car) rental and 2) automotive repair.  Because automotive repair and maintenance facilities are considered essential, our shop remains open to those that need our services.   Also, our rental operations remain open to facilitate continuity of operations for essential workforces and other essential travel.

Bottom line; if you need these essential services, PacWesty stands ready to support you.

All the best, keep the faith, and spread the love!

UPDATED (MARCH 16th 2020)

Hey Friends, we wish you good health and cheer, and convey our sympathies to those who’ve been overwhelmed by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We understand everyone is dealing with this situation in their own way, and we’ve decided to remain open to serve and support you (and keep up our regular routine)!

We’re monitoring CDC and WHO notifications and recommendations, and adhering to measures mandated by our state and national officials. Our team is healthy, optimistic, and in a productive mode. As we all navigate the “upside-down” together, PacWesty is doing everything we can to make sure your interactions with us are safe and enjoyable.

ADVENTURES

If you decide to get away and socially distance yourself on the Olympic Peninsula or similarly remote areas of the Pacific Northwest, PacWesty stands ready to launch your adventure.

We’ve always thoroughly cleaned and serviced our vans and gear, and provided at least a 48-hour “rest” period between back-to-back van journeys. Recently, we’ve added additional disinfecting and steam-cleaning procedures, so you can rest assured your experience will launch in a meticulously cleaned and serviced PacWesty van.

During this time of COVID-19, here is what we ask of you. If you’re feeling sick or exhibiting any symptoms, please stay at home. If you have already booked your PacWesty trip, we’ll gladly re-book your trip for another time – free of any change fees.

Our adventure team is healthy and we intend to keep it that way. Please, if you feel sick, or exhibit any cold or flu symptoms, take care of yourself and hunker down – and avoid visiting active businesses (like PacWesty).

REPAIRS

For those of you who count on PacWesty to keep your beloved VWs running smoothly, here is what we have been doing in our shop.

We do daily cleaning and disinfecting of all areas where our employees’ paths might cross and are adhering to rigorous hygiene procedures. We always do a weekly deep-cleaning of our shop and office areas, and are taking extra measures to protect our clients and employees.

Our technicians wear protectives gloves, masks, and coveralls.  All hard services in your vehicle are thoroughly wiped down with disinfectant before and after we complete our work and testing.

Our technicians are healthy and we intend to keep it that way.  Please, if you feel sick, or exhibit any cold or flu symptoms, take care of yourself and hunker down – and avoid visiting active businesses (like PacWesty).

TAKE A MOMENT AND TAKE CARE

Friends, family, colleagues, and playmates. Please take care of yourselves and those around you.  In these uneasy times, don’t forget how wonderful, invigorating, and essential our connection with the natural environment is.

Spread the love!
