AA Feilding shifts house but remains in town centre

It’s housewarming day for the Feilding AA Centre team as they celebrate their move to a new location in town with the Manawatū Mayor in attendance.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new site, now located around the corner at 4 MacArthur Street, took place prior to opening this morning where Mayor Helen Worboys, who is also a Feilding resident, was present. The ribbon was cut by local AA councillors Kester Olivecrona and Russell Cameron.

AA Channel Network Lower North Island Area Manager Yvonne Milne says the opening was a success and the Feilding team is looking forward to welcoming customers to the new Centre.

"We are so pleased that Mayor Worboys came by this morning to welcome us into our new location.

“The first AA Centre in Feilding was opened 80 years ago and our team who live and work in the area understand how important the Centre is to the community and locals being able to access our services without driving for miles.

“Customers can still expect the same friendly, high-quality customer service, just now in a new location. They can also be assured that all our AA Centres follow strict health and safety protocols during Covid outbreaks to protect themselves and our people.”

AA National Manager Network & Channel Delivery Julian Travaglia says, “With the Covid uncertainty, in particular over the past couple of months, we are pleased to reassure customers that the AA has no plans to withdraw its services from local New Zealand regions.

“We will be continuing to offer all our usual AA Centre services in Feilding, just in a different building.”

Customers can visit the Centre to join the AA, arrange car, home and contents, life, health or travel insurance, renew vehicle registration and driver licences, pick up travel guides, free maps and more.

Due to the latest Covid outbreak, an extension was placed on all driver licences that were due to expire between 21 July 2021 and 30 November 2021, with the new deadline being November 30 2021. The AA is currently advising customers who need to renew their licence to come to the AA Centre now to avoid potential longer wait-times closer to the deadline.

Yvonne says, “We are expecting a rush of people wanting to renew their driver licence near the end of November so come see us sooner rather than later to avoid any long queues.”
