At Jim Ellis Automotive, we want you to know that we are taking preventative measures at our dealerships to ensure that you and your family are safe while purchasing or servicing a vehicle. Like you, we are keeping a close eye on the rapid developments concerning COVID-19, and will continue to provide updates as needed via our website.

At this time, our dealerships are open for business. We are confident that we have taken the necessary steps to provide a safe environment, and we will continue to apply preventative measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Below are a few of the steps we have taken to ensure your safety:

  • We have cleaning crews in place who are disinfecting our dealerships multiple times a day.
  • Service technicians are wiping down all vehicles completed in service.
  • Extra hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout our dealerships.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfection of customer and employee touch-points, including door knobs, handles, writing surfaces, countertops, etc.
  • We'll also be avoiding unnecessary contact by replacing handshakes with alternative forms of greetings. No offense. It just makes sense.
  • We have modified our time off policy to better accommodate employees who may become sick.

In addition to the items listed above, we've also temporarily changed our hours of operation. Our hours of operation for all departments are 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and we are closed on Sunday. Our new temporary hours of operation will enable us to better utilize employee time and resources, which will in turn help us deliver a higher level of service to our clients and prospects. It will allow us additional time to clean and disinfect our dealerships each day and provide us the time to take the necessary steps and actions to provide a safe environment for you and your family at any one of our 18 dealerships.
