Branch Appointments

Schedule an Appointment

We’re open, with safety and convenience in mind

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been able to remain open by following our safety guidelines which are designed to keep everyone socially distant and healthy. We continue to follow the local and state requirements, which in some cases, may differ from the federal guidelines or recommendations. We also continue to practice additional measures to keep everyone safe, including:

  • Encouraging the use of Drive Thru banking (where available) and ATMs
  • Requiring the use of masks by clients and employees when visiting a branch or office
  • Actively enforcing Social Distancing in and around our branches and offices
  • Controlling lobby or building access when needed
  • Asking customers who are sick, have a fever or a cough to use remote banking options or contact us for appointments
  • Continuing the increased sanitation of our general environments and all high-touch surfaces

PPP Update

On May 4, 2021, the Small Business Administration (SBA) unexpectedly announced funds have been exhausted for PPP loans for most lenders, including Mechanics Bank. We are not able to accept new applications at this time.

Beware of Scams

Unfortunately, we know that fraud and scams can increase during times of heightened fear and anxiety. We want to help you stay safe! Remember, we will never initiate contact to you by phone, email, or text to ask you for any personal information such as account numbers, social security numbers or debit/ATM card number or PINs. And please also be aware of other emails, texts, and phone calls that may look like they are coming from reputable companies or organizations trying to help. For more tips, please visit the Federal Trade Commission's Coronavirus Scams site and check out our Fraud Prevention page.
