COVID-19 and your customer experience

Health and safety first. We urge that all employees stay home if they experience any symptoms. We have also kindly asked all staff members to refrain from shaking hands and to remain at a safe distance.
Cleanliness. We have intensified the dealership cleaning regimen. There will be a continual rotation of staff throughout the day that will sanitize all surfaces, door handles, and everything that comes into human contact.
Glove service. Every Sales Associate, Technician, Valet, and Lot Attendant will be given gloves and will have a fresh set for each vehicle serviced. Customers will also be given gloves, if requested, when entering the dealership.
Everyone will do their part. Our entire staff has been provided with healthcare guidelines from the CDC. We have instructed our employees to take responsibility to clean and disinfect their areas multiple times a day–this includes light switches, desks, and computer accessories.
Convenience won’t stop (in-store and virtual). For those that are not feeling well, or would prefer to not visit the store, we offer vehicle drop-off, pick up, and a drop-off box for all your service needs. We will also have all tools for shopping via online. This includes a virtual showroom, test drive, option to call/Facetime your sales associate, and to process all payments online.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the dealership. We are 100% dedicated to accommodating you and our staff at all times. We will be intensely monitoring for any updates on laws, codes, and guidelines via the CDC.
