COVID-19 Survey: Truck & Trailer Results

We know that COVID-19 and the lockdown have had an impact on the commercial, construction, and mining industries, so we took it upon ourselves to do a survey to see how much has been affected and how we can help businesses recover from these unfortunate circumstances.

The survey we conducted was sent to all the dealers we have in our database and we would like to thank everyone who responded. Please view the survey questions and results below.

COVID-19 Survey Q10 | Truck & Trailer


  • The majority of responders stated that less than 25% of their staff is operational and that most of them haven’t made sales during the lockdown period.
  • It’s clear that the lockdown has already affected customer purchasing behaviour and the majority of responders agreed that customers will hold back spend, which will greatly impact the commercial and industrial business environments.
  • The majority of responders agreed that the supply of parts has been affected by lockdown, but with the recent regulation changes (regarding the supply of automotive parts to essential services) that should be less of a problem going forward.
