Working safely

We’ve changed how we work to give our customers a safe car-buying experience, and our product geniuses play a key role in maintaining the highest levels of customer service in our showrooms.

"Our showroom now has a one-way system with social distancing measures in place to keep the staff and customers safe at all times as well as a protective screens at every desk. This has created a more relaxed environment for both customers and staff members as the showroom is a safe place to be."
