AutoNation Chevrolet in Amarillo offered its first 2,000 customers a vehicle disinfection treatment for only $1 on March 25 to help in the prevention of COVID-19.
No appointments were needed for the pull-up service. Drivers were asked to step out of their car for a few minutes, and the vehicle’s interior was treated with Clorox Total 360 using an electrostatic sprayer.
AutoNation team members greeting the customer and doing the treatment application wore gloves and masks and observed social distancing. Payments were received in a bucket making sure no contacts was made during the service.
“The thing is we go out in the public and touch things and we get back into our car with dirty hands, and we touch our car and all those bacteria stay in the car,” General Manager Jimmy Allen, told NewsChannel 10. “It’s amazing if you swab your vehicle how much bacteria is actually in there, so we saw this as a way to give back to Amarillo.”
