One thing you can still do, though, is shop for a new car. Car dealerships have reopened and shifted the way they do business to comply with state and federal guidelines. …

My dealership is wearing masks and practicing social distancing for three straight months straight. I’m exhausted at months end from not breathing correctly.

Remote sales, Virtual delivery of paperwork, and digital storefront are NOW a necessity.

We sold remotely in all of April and early May, why is it that we now are reverting to our old ways. Pandemics last for two years or maybe forever, what if COVID-19 never ends.

As we book, post, and finalize the deals and close the books for June. Our greatest challenge will be to change the way we do business. The only solution will be to divert to remote selling and never look back as this pandemic in today’s digital world is nothing we can compare to as computers were non-existent.

COVID-19 will change the world as we know it. The system will be only as good as your investment into it, so if you’re the old-timer who’s not computer savvy, download an app that teaches you how to type faster and practice. For the younger generation, be kind to that old-timer by showing them how to download and use it as their experience and mental toughness will be passed back to you! We can all survive if we build a team so strong you don’t know who the boss is!
