Social distancing measures at dealerships – watch the video

“There’s lots of cleaning yeah”. 

Most car dealerships are now open but are operating with strict social distancing measures in place as per Government guidelines. Watch our new video to see what to expect, and how to prepare, if you’re planning to visit a dealership.

In the video below, Gary Rumsby, the General Sales Manager at Toomey Vauxhall in Southend, explains the new measures his dealership has adopted to ensure that customers and staff alike stay safe, from changes in the showroom and test drives to servicing appointments. 


While all dealerships are following government guidelines, different dealerships will have slightly different practices in place. Please contact your local dealer in advance of your visit  to ask about their specific social distancing measures.
