    Hi Dear Customers.

    With the Corona Virus Concern, we have put some options in place for you! You may drop off your car and put the keys through our key-drop slot without having to come in.

    Also, you can take care of payment on-line or over the phone, then pick up your car with the keys in a clean bag, ready for you to go. You do not need to come in to the office.

    Of course, if you still want to that's great, we are practicing the usual precautions: Social distancing, hand washing, cleaning your steering wheel and handles, and wiping down surfaces.

    All of us are in good health, our policy is that anyone feeling ill is staying home. We have our parts delivery folks dropping off away from the office, so there's very little in the way of people traffic coming through our shop.

    Thanks for your attention!
