LHM Dealerships, Prime Automotive Among Groups Announcing COVID-19 Measures

Written by Auto Remarketing staff


Another measure is that all LHM Dealerships service advisers and service technicians wear a fresh pair of gloves with each customer’s vehicle.


Also, when a vehicle enters the service drive, technicians place a protective seat cover on the driver’s seat of every vehicle. They use disinfectant wipes to wipe down the steering wheel.


DrivePur is an additional measure for LHM Dealerships. That is an airborne sanitization product that kills unseen germs and bacteria inside the vehicle.


“We know that people rely on their vehicles to get them where they need to go,” said LHM Dealerships President Dean Fitzpatrick.


“Even now, there are people working in essential businesses whose job is to keep the collective public safe and healthy," Fitzpatrick said. "We want them to know that our dealerships are open, and that we’ve instituted various measures to minimize the risk of potential exposure.”


The company encourages employees and customers to conduct practices such as frequent hand washing, coughing and sneezing into the elbow or tissue, not shaking hands and staying home if they are sick.


In the area of seating at the dealerships, the company has spaced seats in customer waiting areas. During interactions, the company encourages employees and customers to maintain 6 ft. of distance.


The dealerships are performing sanitation multiple times daily for high-contact surfaces such as door handles. The same goes for high-use areas such as bathrooms and customer service areas.
