Questions you may have

What does sanitisation of touch points mean?

This means that any common areas that you would frequently touch will be sanitised. This includes your steering wheel, gear lever, parking brake, window and side mirror controls, rearview mirror, stereo and air conditioning controls and driver's door handle. Have peace of mind that the use of our disinfectant is completely safe and will ensure that bacteria on surfaces are eliminated.

How will my visit to a Honda dealer or service centre vary under Alert Level 2?

Feel comforted in the fact that all Honda dealers are 100% Alert Level 2 compliant. When you come in you'll notice social distancing markers in place which enable you to feel safe while being properly attended to. Our staff will continue with our Alert Level 3 health and safety guidelines to ensure your safety. 

What if I'm test driving a demonstrator or used vehicle. Will these be sanitised?

Absolutely. All demonstrator and used vehicle stock will be sanitised prior to our reopening. Any demonstrator or used vehicle you are to test drive will be sanitised prior to your use and once it's returned. Upon test drive we will leave a "Sanitised" sign in the vehicle as well as a fresh set of gloves if you wish to use them.

I need to renew my Honda's WOF. Can I get that done?

Yes, all services can be provided and conducted in a contactless manner; WOF, registration, service jobs, parts and recalls.
