Dealerships can operate emergency call-out and delivery services.

Machinery dealerships are no longer considered ‘essential businesses’ following the implementation of the most recent Covid-19-related restrictions announced last Friday night (March 27th).

The supply, repair and installation of machinery and equipment and industrial machinery and equipment for essential services are permitted under the new public health guidelines.

The Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) has reminded its members that they are still able to operate in a limited way with emergency call-out and delivery services.

A spokesperson for the association said: “Our trade is no longer in the category of essential businesses that can continue relatively normal operations.”

While machinery dealerships have closed the doors of their premises to the public, a number of firms have a parts collection and drop-off sections outside the gates of their businesses.

On-farm services including the repair and installation of machinery can continue.

Clients are advised to communicate with farm machinery dealerships by phone.
