How to Buy a Car Safely despite COVID-19?
Purchasing a Vehicle

icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By LOFI Motors North

As we face uncertain times with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and we are practicing social distancing, buying a car might not seem like a top priority for some. For others, their vehicle needs are still very much a priority and a concern. If you are planning on buying a new or a used car now, or at some point in 2020, here are a few things to be aware of. 


1. Are all car dealerships currently closed? 


While many car dealerships are closing shop, they are still fully functional online and by phone. If you are interested in a particular vehicle, give us a call, send us a text, email us, or Facebook message us. We’re available to resolve your car needs from the convenience of your homes. 


2. Do I risk coronavirus exposure from shopping for a car?


There is a risk of exposure to coronavirus from any encounter with other individuals and leaving the house when it is not necessary is discouraged. That being said, as people should be avoiding carpooling and using public transportation, having a car might be a priority just to get out of the house to get any essential groceries or to keep going to your job if you are not working from home. 


3. How can I minimize the risk of COVID-19 when purchasing a car? 


To limit the time around people at a dealership, start by doing your research online. Call the dealership up to see if the buying process, as well as your credit application, can be handled online or via email. If you are worried to drop by the dealership to pick up your new car, don’t hesitate to ask what other alternatives are available. Some dealerships offer to deliver the car and some companies offer car delivery services. 

If you decide to go to a dealership to pick up a car, don’t hesitate to ask in advance about any precautions the dealership is taking to protect car shoppers.

LOFI Motors North is a pre-owned, late model dealer that provides customers with a complete automotive experience at competitive prices. Explore our inventory to find the right car for you.
