The Contactless Car Buying Experience

Posted by Poquet Auto on May 15, 2020 12:40:23 PM

Many car dealerships throughout Minnesota have switched their primary focus to getting cars to their buyers in the safest way possible. From the moment a prospect starts searching for a new car, the process has shifted since COVID-19 first appeared and will likely be impacted for quite some time. The switch to a contactless buying experience has been done by decreasing the number of touch-points between the seller and buyer and by following strict health and safety guidelines.


Prioritizing Safety with our customers and employees

While we have always consistently maintained high standards over the years in our cleanliness practices, Poquet Auto has implemented two new programs and additional processes to keep the car buying experience safe.

In addition to the Centers for Disease Control Prevention guidelines, we work in accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health to ensure that our customers and employees are as safe as possible.

Take a Test Drive

To schedule a test drive, you can schedule an appointment for you to be able to come in and drive any of our 150+ vehicles. Not only will we bring the car upfront and have it waiting for you to keep interactions at a minimum, we thoroughly sanitize all major touch-points of the vehicle before the test drive. To name a few;

  • Steering wheel and gear stick
  • All exterior/interior door handles
  • Dashboard and center counsel 
  • Rear-view mirror and window switches
  • Seatbelts
  • Seat adjustment buttons

We allow all of our customers to take cars for test drives by themselves to ensure that everyone is as safe and comfortable as possible.

Free Home Delivery

In an effort to make the car buying process even easier than before, we have been offering a home delivery service within 100 miles of our Golden Valley location when you finance your car with partnered Lender, Spire Credit Union. Spire is also currently providing the option of pushing out your first payment by 100 days.

We continue the same sanitizing methods of all major touch-points of the vehicle once we deliver the car to you and before we hand over the keys. 

If you would like to learn more about the free home delivery option, simply pick out a vehicle online and contact our sales team at (763) 522-2000.
