  • Disinfecting our vehicles before and after test-drives, including high-touch areas like door handles, key fobs, steering wheels and gear shifts.
  • Ensuring that all our employees are washing their hands frequently and using hand sanitizer in between washings.
  • Instructing any employee who does not feel well or is experiencing symptoms to stay home from work, and encouraging customers who do not feel well to reschedule their appointments or speak with us remotely.
  • Postponing any business-related travel, including meetings and vendor visits.

How Should I Clean My Car to Prevent Coronavirus?

If you're using your car for errands like grocery store runs or any other purpose, it's important to sanitize it frequently to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Not sure how to disinfect your car? We recommend the following measures:

  • Wash your hands; put on disposable gloves (if available) before you begin sanitizing your car.
  • Use a mild dish soap or other common household disinfectants to scrub high-touch areas like the dashboard, steering wheel, touchscreens and door handles.
  • If you have space and supplies, consider keeping disinfecting wipes in your car for more frequent wipe downs.
  • Not sure how to clean leather seats in a car? You can use any type of leather cleaner. Be sure to use a microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the leather!
