The Prime Minister‘s announcement today that the UK will endure another month of lockdown poses new challenges for car dealers as they will have to adapt to new constraints on the way they do business.
The announced lockdown, which is intended to last until the start of December, will require car dealers to close as they are considered ‘non-essential retailers’. December and January are however the expected peak months for corona virus transmission, so the possibility of the initial period of the lockdown being extended is something of a concern.
If they have not done so already, motor dealers need to be looking at their sales processes to incorporate collect and collect, and click and deliver propositions. An e-commerce enabled website will be essential in meeting the challenge to maximise revenue over this period.
Fortunately, AutoHQ’s automotive e-commerce websites allow dealers to easily take deposits online and allow paperwork to be signed electronically on the customers own device. We have developer time available to onboard a limited number of new clients during November, so if you are interested switching to an ecommerce-enabled website please make contact with us as early as possible.
