Buying Cars Safely During the Coronavirus

The world feels like a much different place today than it did even weeks ago, with the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, spreading across geographic regions. Medical experts are encouraging people to remain in their homes to limit the spread of this pandemic, and some countries have gone as far as making staying home a legal requirement.

In a time of social distancing, where people need to stay at least six feet apart when they’re out in public, Colony Ford Brampton is doing everything possible to create a safe environment at all our facilities.

Read on to learn about the adjustments we’ve made during this difficult time to make car-buying safe and comfortable amid the spread of the Coronavirus.

Online Credit Applications

If you’re looking for new cars for sale in the Greater Toronto Area, you don’t even need to leave the home to apply for credit online. Health matters above all right now, and it’s important to stay at home unless leaving is truly required.

People still need to drive to pick up groceries, or things like pharmaceuticals or other medications. If you don’t live nearby, these places could be more difficult to reach than usual.

While public transit is still open in some cities, a private car is much more conducive to social distancing. If you need to buy a new vehicle now, please avail yourself of all the online tools Colony Ford Brampton offers.

Online Vehicle Trade Appraisals

For those in the market for used vehicles for sale in Brampton and the GTA, we’ve made it possible to get your vehicles appraised online so you don’t need to be in the dealership in person. We also have a wide array of used vehicles for sale in our online marketplace, so you can cruise the lot from the comfort and safety of your own home.

When it it’s finally time to move from the online world to the actual dealership, be assured that we take social distancing seriously and have ensured that sanitization on our premises is extensive.

Facetime and Video Conversations with Staff

Right now, nothing matters more than health. While you are in isolation at home, it’s important to prevent “cabin fever” from setting in. It’s OK to get some fresh air outside, so long as you can safely practice social distancing.

But carrying on with ordinary tasks while stuck indoors and keeping up a sense of routine may give you a sense of structure and purpose. Plus, in a time where we’re at home in small groups, you’ll want to maintain face-to-face connection with actual people!

We’ve made it possible for staff to connect with our customers, so you can ask any questions about our vehicles with a live staff member. Your local Ford dealership in Brampton is always accessible to the community, even during the uncertain days of a global pandemic.

Like everybody else, we are keeping a close eye on the latest developments about the Coronavirus. We will keep adapting our business as things change, to make sure car-buying is safe and simple during these unpredictable times. One thing that will not change, however, is that we will always continue to keep the community’s health as our number one priority.
