Are dealerships open during quarantine?
Maintaining Social Distancing — The retail automotive industry has been built on handshakes. These times require new norms. Obviously, the physical act of shaking hands is going to have to be put on the shelf for a while. Also, we’re keeping anyone from our team at home that appears to be feeling ill. We respectfully ask that you also stay home if you’re showing signs of illness.

Keeping it clean — Just like at our homes, keeping our facility as clean as possible is our top priority. In fact, everyone at the dealership is responsible for disinfecting their work area before and after every customer interaction. Everyone has been issued the necessary cleaning products and they’re not being timid about using them.

Bringing the dealership to you — If you need a new vehicle, you need a new vehicle. Also, we would never expect you to buy something without taking it for a test drive. Our product experts can bring the vehicle you want to test drive to your house. You will almost certainly notice the smell of cleaning products when you get in the car, truck or SUV. We know that isn’t as good as ‘new car smell,’ but these aren’t normal times.

If you have any questions about how you can have a test drive delivered to your home or what we’re doing to keep you safe, please make an appointment with a Serra Toyota product expert today.
