As TNT Custom Marine in Miami is classified as an essential business under Florida State COVID-19 shelter-in-place restrictions, the well-known operation is still performing service work. However, the company is not allowed to launch boats in storage for its customers. TNT personnel can only test-run boats the company has serviced to be sure whatever problems they were brought in for have been resolved.
“There are a lot of restrictions for boaters in our area,” he continued. “They can’t beach on any of the sandbars and they can’t raft up.”
“As long as we have a service business, we are still open,” said John Tomlinson, who co-owns TNT with his longtime business partner Mike Thomas. “We can’t launch boats for our existing or new customers—that part of our marina business is shut down—but clients who have boats in slips in our marina can still take them out.
No customers are allowed in TNT’s main office or work areas. Tomlinson also said that he and Thomas are strictly mandating and enforcing social distancing practices with all of their service department employees and mechanics. As for customers who need service or repair work performed by TNT, they can call the main office to arrange drop-off and pick-up that requires no in-person interaction.
